Lyrath is definitely one for your bucket list. It's in a beautiful location close to the lively medieval city of Kilkenny. It has extensive grounds that are perfect for an afternoon stroll or a quiet picnic and it has the best kids club we have ever come across. The kids were entertained for hours each day by a dedicated team... More

Lovely couple of days at the Lyrath. On the whole a very positive experience, extremely child friendly & welcoming (though they're aren't hoards of kids running around). I had a very pleasant & relaxing stay despite it just being myself & 2 kids. Beautiful lobby, bar areas, outside seating & fantastic grounds & facilities. The hotel is perfectly clean throughout....

We stayed in the Lyrath Estate in the luxurious 'Room 41' back in June. We choose to go on a 'Mini Moon' after our Wedding and just relax and unwind in comfort and that is exactly what we got here. We were booked on the Romantic Getaway package and checked into Room 41 which boasts and impressive 4 poster king... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. We really enjoyed our trip. There was a great atmosphere around the hotel with good music in one of the bars at night time. The highlight was the food for me. The thai restaurant was fabulous!!! Would love to go back to that alone. As well as that, the buffet breakfast... More

The package included a superior room, one evening meal, bubbly breakfast in bed on one morning, two spa treatments, wine and flowers on arrival. On arrival we were impressed with the setting and the grounds. The staff in every... More

Just returned from a much looked forward to trip to Lyrath. Hotel isn't very well sign posted but thankfully it was on google maps. The drive to the hotel in the lane is fabulous but very hard to see at night as there were no lights turned on, on this particular evening. Check in was slow as the que was... More

We arrived at 1 am after getting stranded in the Irish countryside with two flat tires. The hotel night staff were overwhelmingly accommodating, providing us with something to eat and drink at that late hour. The hotel was absolutely beautiful hotel. The room was ample in size and the bathroom was spacious. As with most of our Irish vacation proved,... More

We had an amazing room which helped our review enormously. We booked in for afternoon tea which was lovely but some confusion and delay in receiving our order. We ate in the restaurant and it was delicious. My only issue was nothing to do with the hotel rather the guests. There was loads and loads of kids there the weekend... More
