My wife and I enjoyed a midweek break at the Lyrath Hotel over Christmas (two nights + 1 dinner). We recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a good quality hotel that is secluded but still within easy reach of Kilkenny City.
We liked the welcome and overall friendliness of the staff; the high-quality and spacious interiors; the very comfortable bed in our very comfortable room; the free wifi; the lovely shower; and the beautiful swimming pool. Those features make the Lyrath a very good hotel.
We were less impressed with the quality of the food (it's good...but not great) and the prices in the spa. We felt as well that the hotel could do more to make the grounds accessible to walkers and runners.
We would definitely stay at the Lyrath again. We recommend it for couples, small groups, families, and anyone who wants to relax in quiet surroundings. Do bear in mind, however, that Lyrath is a wedding reception venue...check to see if there's a wedding planned if you really want a quiet break.
