"Worth every penny"
High quality of service from start to finish with warm, friendly and super accommodating staff... especially Nathan (can't remember his actual job title), who after a small error had been made with a dinner booking was really professional in getting it sorted and took great care of us afterwards in the Yew restaurant (which i cannot recommend highly enough as a fine dining experience).
The spa was very relaxing all round, again with great staff making everything run smoothly during our visit.
Our room was comfortable and spacious, and the grounds are genuinely lovely for a quiet stroll at any hour of the day or night.

Amazing stay
My partner and I went to Lyrath this week to celebrate our anniversary. Prior to our stay I emailed the hotel to let them know it was our anniversary if there was anything they could do to make our stay more comfortable. To our delight we were upgraded on check-in with lovely chocolates and a little card wishing us well in our room. About an hour after checking in someone came to our room with a little dessert saying “Happy Anniversary”. We were in an executive suite and the room was beautiful, spacious, clean and very comfortable. There was a lovely view of the grounds from the large window while still being very private. The facilities were fab with a smart tv and espresso machine. Very little sound could be heard from inside the room aside from some muffled door closing.

Refreshing Visit to Lyrath
We were on a return 2 day trip to Lyrath estate recently. We thoroughly enjoyed it. All the staff of the hotel including the spa therapists were very friendly and helpful. It was a real chill-out, relaxing experience, and we can't wait to go back again.
There was a wedding on each day we were there but they didn't interfere with our enjoyment. The staff were well able to cope

"Lyrath Estate is amazing"
Visited Lyrath Estate in the early Summer. Such a beautiful magic place. Two beautiful dogs welcomed us at the main door. Everything about our stay was first class. The hotel is so plush and everything about the accommodation was just wonderful. The staff gave us a great welcome and were always available with warm smiles. We dined upstairs and had I can only say a really inviting dinner. The walks around the estate are so lovely! This is a really great place to stay. It is a wonderful treat!

"Wonderful and memories made"
Spent two wonderful days at the lyrath Hotel. It has an beautiful setting, wonderful food, especially the dining room upstairs , and the breakfast excellent too. My fiancé proposed while we were there and I rang down to see could I get my nails done. Unfortunately there was no appointment but hotel send up a bottle of champagne to us. Also at dinner that night, made a big fuss about the two of us and gave us fabulous deserts with congrats on them. The staff were so friendly, warm and helpful and there is a really lovely ambiance there. The room was lovely and the pool and facilities are excellent. Kilkenny is a really attractive town too. I am already looking forward to returning.
