A Wedding at Lyrath Estate We arrived at Lyrath Estate around dusk the facade stood majestically in the fading light. As we entered the hotel we were greeted by the "Buzz". The hotel lobby was alive with the sound of people, some checking-in, some enjoying the sheer elegance of the Foyer area, large Christmas Tree and Santa's Sleigh, with tasteful...

The Lyrath Estate Hotel is a really nice place to stay when visiting Kilkeny. The hotel is established in an old manor but offer all the comfort of a modern place. Service is friendly and professional. The concierge is really helpful and never fail giving you some good advice when assisting you with your luggage. Rooms are quite big and...

We only discovered them after the old looking bedding rolled back two days into our stay.The staff let it slip that the mattresses had to be taken out of an aircraft hanger where they...

This is late in writing a review and I apologize, but I loved this place so much and had to come back in and write one! My husband and I came to Ireland in May 2016 to do a tour around the southern half (rented a car and stayed a few nights each in different towns). This was the first...

I was a bit concerned when I read the poor reviews on the way to Kilkenny for a surprise getaway which had been organised by my thoughtful husband. However the visit started well with a lovely chat with Tom. Our room was very comfortable and had a lovely view of the perfectly still countryside covered in mist which looked very...

Just returned from an overnight stay at the Lyrath Hotel for a Nathan Carter Concert. It was my second visit to this hotel and was certainly a different experience to the last time. Staff at reception lacked courtesy on arrival. There was a mix up with regard our dinner reservation for the incorrect restaurant. When at last we were allocated...

We have stayed in The Lyrath Hotel many times over the past few years, however have seem such an improvement in the hotel on our last visit, it is obvious for all to see that there is a new management team in place and that the standards have improved greatly. For the first time, we saw managers on the floor...

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago. The restaurant was a disaster, waited for 1 hr 30 mins for main course, staff were all over the place they didnt seem to have any system. Wrong courses arrived eventually. To make matters worse had to queue for breakfast for at least 40 mins, This is not what you expect at...

After leaving the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin, we traveled to Lyrath Estate. When doing my research, I hought there would be more of a castle feel that an upscale modern hotel feel. The night was very comfortable and I enjoyed walking around the hotel. Kilkenny itself is a beautiful town, I was just hoping for more of a castle feel...
