Check in smooth. Rooms clean and spacious, Toilet in seperate room in bathroom big plus. Handmade soap company products fabulous. Nice large bathrobes (Brown) white smaller. Hotel is fresh, a nice removal from the heat of hotels that can be stifling. Oasis spa, I didn't get to use thermal suite as I am pregnant, but the girls said the facilities... More

My boyfriend took me for a night away for my birthday recently and unfortunately we were disappointed with our stay at Lyrath Estate. Firstly, when we checked in for our room, we were told that there were no appointments available for the spa the next day, eventhough it was part of our package for the night. We were then put...

We stayed in Lyrath last night and went home very disappointment. I had stayed here before and enjoyed it but won't be returning again. I got the 55 minute full body massage which was €85 but it only lasted 40 minutes, really felt like it was a rip off. The thermal suite and treatment rooms were freezing. My hands and... More

The hotel was fabulous. The staff were so friendly and professional. The rooms were very clean and spacious. Breakfast was very good and the food in the restaurant. We stayed two nights. We had the pleasure of experiencing the spa and the thermal suite. Couldn't get enough of them. On the weekend in question there were weddings on the Friday... More

We stayed a night in the Lyrath with the Girls Allowed package. We started with afternoon tea where the staff there went above and beyond to be accommodating with a food intolerance. Thanks so much for that. We then went to the spa where we had booked in for treatments. The thermal suite is fabulous and the beauty therapists were... More

Arrived and permitted to check in one hour early which was nice (although 4pm check-in is ridiculous in my opinion). Had lunch in bar, staff were helpful food was bland and substandard for pub-grub. Poor that access to Spa (15euro per person) was not included in room price (200 euro), staff in spa were rude and most unhelpful and not... More

We give it 3 stars because the pictured advertising for Lyrath Estate lodging is a bit misleading. You're not actually staying in the estate house itself but rather in the hotel attached and behind the house. It has the feel of a mini Hilton rather than something more provential, which is what we hoped for. On the plus side, we... More

This must be the most relaxing hotel break I've had in quite a while, taken with my mum and sister. A few niggles, not a great start. (Prefacing this review to say I stay in hotels a lot and I'm very fussy, but when I'm in a 5 star hotel, I expect a lot) I wasn't too impressed by lunch... More
