Just spent a two day family break in the lyrath and would totally recommend it. Spotlessly clean, professional and friendly staff, cookies and milk complimentary for the kids each evening (my 14 & 11 yr olds loved this!) turn down service if you want it. Food was excellent, very relaxing break, look forward to staying there again soon.

Stayed here about 5 years ago. Still very good hotel but not quite as good as it used to be. Good room and bathroom but we thought that the bedding was a little bit tired. We had friends in for a meal in the PanAsian restaurant. Fantastic food but very poor and slow service. Good breakfast.Would I stay again. Yes... More

Wonderful hotel, spotlessly clean, friendly and competent staff, all well trained and the setting is just so relaxing. All the restaurants are excellent. Breakfast very well run even at busy times. If you feel you need a chill out hotel with excellence in all departments this is it.

Visited Kilkenny for a work conference in January and it was my first visit to The Lyrath, The hotel entrance was spectacular, I was drawn upwards to the grand clock in the reception area and the beautiful statues that were lit up along the way to the bedrooms. We were still waiting on some of our party to arrive so... More

Stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We arrived for afternoon tea and were really looked after by Lucas and Josephine who catered to our every need. We followed with a lovely spa treatment and then just enough time to shower before dinner in the La Perla restaurant which was gorgeous! Jessica who brought the very important bottle... More
