Once I figured out that the 2nd floor in this hotel was below ground, I didn't feel I had completely lost my sense of direction! Our room was big and welcoming, with everything we could possibly want. The staff was all just the best, I wish I could recall the waitress name we had both nights. and also the receptionist...

Stayed here with my wife for 1 night recently, and was a very pleasant experience. I dont think the hotel is a 5 star, but a very decent 4 star, with good facilities, staff and food. We ate in Yindees and was very impressed. All in all, a good night away

Lovely hotel with choice of restaurants and bar. The pool area is not as nice as I expected but we still enjoyed our time there. I would return as this hotel is in a lovely setting and is a close drive to Dublin. Staff were all very pleasant.

Stayed again this time for a family wedding and what a night thanks to staff in Lyrath. We were very welcomed by all staff and with plenty of space for the wedding party and luxurious bedrooms we came away after having a super weekend. Wedding food was piping hot and all requirements were looked after effortlessly which also goes for... More

I attended a post-funeral family lunch here and was impressed by the beautiful decor and architecture ( a successful mix of traditional and modern) as well as the friendliness of the super-efficient staff. Martin Gallagher the Operations Manager looked after us like eggs in the nest. Nothing was too much effort. The hotel has a beautiful spa area and a... More

We stayed at the lyrath hotel for 3 nights in August with our two young children. The hotel and setting is beautiful however the service/ staff were some of the worst we have come across in some time. The hotel was busy whilst we were there with lots of families perhaps the staff were stressed/tired after a busy summer but... More

This hotel excels at perfection in every aspect. The staff is second to none. Lydia, you continue to represent with the ease of a seasoned veteran at your young age. Sandra, a shining star, all staff should be mentioned here, Josephine, and the manager of the restaurant, dedication would only learn from your service. From the fluffy towels, to the... More

It is too bad that the main entry is not into the old home. Our room was a bit noisy due to some weddings and the décor of the room does not match the hotel. Food in the bar is good and the main restaurant is not so good. Staff are snooty and do not speak English well.

Stayed in this lovely hotel in communicating bedrooms for a family. Really nice ground floor rooms with a space in the garden outside. Lovely walks around the grounds. Ate in both the bar and the restaurant, both equally good. Great service and friendly helpful staff.
