I recently attended my friend's wedding here. From beginning to end it was an amazing weekend. We stayed in the older part of the hotel, which added to the fairytale feel. The variety of locations within the hotel/grounds means there's plenty to keep everyone occupied. The service and the food were excellent.

Coming from Dublin, access to this high-quality property is extremely convenient : you glide down the N7, take Exit 11 onto the splendid M9, proceed to Exit 8, and two roundabouts later you're just there. We were impressed by our surroundings from the moment we entered the driveway - Lyrath is a beautifully restored old house, with elaborate modern wings...

I had heard mixed reviews about the Lyrath from others so was slightly skeptical prior to check in. I like my 5 star hotels and know that it's the little things that make places stand out. The Lyrath fell massively short and certainly didn't stand out by any means. I was put off immediately by the crowds in reception when...

Had a lovely stay in this hotel. The meal was fabulous. The staff were amazing. So friendly. Our waiter was brilliant. I cannot say enough good things about lyrath estate. The only bad thing was that I was only there one night. Will definitely be back!

We stayed in the Lyrath last weekend - 2 adults and 2 children. It was coming up to St Patricks Day and it was also Mother's Day. We checked in around 12.45 but our room wasn't ready. No problem - we would sit in the bar and relax with a coffee. No - not possible. The bar was booked solid...

So when you travel as much as we do the one thing you want on your night away is a good nights sleep. The room we stayed in was amazing. The hotel, grounds, bar and staff were all fabulous.
