Stayed for two nights to be close to a family member. This is an excellent hotel for families with small children. Service overall was friendly, except for the Asian restaurant, which was average at best. Good restaurant options to suit different tastes and budgets. Rooms clean if a bit dated in fittings. WiFi did not function at all on second... More

The kids club was great and was free... More

On balance we (young couple) had a pleasant relaxing stay - breakfast was lovely and thai restaurant v tasty despite a long long wait for food. No wifi (its 2014!), tv's are still of the box variety, staff v friendly and helpful. Bar food was average and prices were outrageously expensive for what you get. Great location.

We spent two nights at this hotel over the easter weekend. We have two children aged 10 and 7 and we were so happy with our accomodation, kids clubs and all the facilities this hotel has to offer. The staff were amazing, any queries we had were answered straight away. Our kids loved the kids club in the morning and... More

We really like staying in the Lyrath Hotel. It really suits a family stay and is comfortable and laidback. Even though the Lyrath is big, you never get that impersonal feeling normally associated with big hotels. The breakfast must be the best in the country. Anything you could look for is there and nothing is any trouble for the staff.... More

The Lyrath hotel is a gem of a hotel nestled in the green acres of Kilkenny. The receptionist that greeted us on arrival was very pleasant and helpful, As were all the staff that we came into contact with. The breakfast room is very big and airy and the selection of food is extremely good. Food in Tuppers bar was... More

Would recommend the deluxe package to anyone. My only problem was when we went for our afternoon tea. The service was extremely slow. We gave the voucher to staff and... More

We had our wedding at the Lyrath Estate & Spa hotel last Friday. We had a wonderful wedding there - a civil cermony in the hotel's beautiful country estate rooms. The staff were superb - very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable on how to give great service. Many of our guests stayed for two nights at the hotel and we received... More
