I am basking in the glow of an Excellent meal, and indeed an Excellent short break. From our arrival here, the attention to detail by the staff has been wonderful. I have yet to pass a staff member, who did not say hello, and it's catching, the guests are at it too. The grounds are great, the location excellent, and...

Myself and my wife attended a intimate family wedding in the enchanting Lyrath hotel.In our thirties we would normlly stay in town centres and enjoy the amenities of the town. However when you stay at the Lyrath you do not wish to leave the hotel grounds as they are simply magnificent. If you need a relaxing break to catch up...

A good hotel a bit out of town, not much they can do about that! Pool windows and changing room a little grotty. I had to phone down to remind them i had ordered breakfast in bed, the order was not collected from the door.

This trip was meant to be a splash out for the family as we celebrated an occasion. My first impression is a beautiful setting in the country side, located ten minutes outside the city. The reception area is impressive and is accessed from a side entrance. The rooms allocated are not like what is advertised on the website, one of...

We stayed here recently for the third time. Our most recent visit was for a gathering of close friends. The choice of venue was beyond our control. The first time we stayed in the Lyrath we had no hot water in the shower for our 2 night stay. We reported it when we arrived and nothing was done about it....

My partner and I visited Lyrath's Oasis spa for a day. We had lunch in the bar which was excellent but potentially overpriced. The spa staff were very friendly and welcoming and got us settled in with a tour of the spa. The spa has two saunas, steam rooms, tropical showers and relaxation rooms as well as one hydro-pool which...

Wonderful place to stay. A little outside of the town but a short can ride away if you need that. The property is stunning, breakfast was fantastic and staff were very friendly. Take time to stroll around the grounds as well. Highly recommended.

From the signs at the main entrance gateway, the expansive lobby and the main floor room with access to the outdoor patio area this was a luxurious setting. The main bar is relaxing and the seating area overlooking the rose garden is perfect on a warm evening

I attended a wonderful hotel at this hotel. The charge for the room for 1 night was €160 and for an extra night would have been €235. The hotel does not justify this price.The building and rooms are excellent. but the staffing and service left a lot to be desired. The staff were pleasant but not well trained. their inexperience...

The original part of lyrath is really impressive and a lovely place to lounge around, I can't help but be reminded of an airport terminal when I walk in the door of the more modern newer part of the hotel. We stayed in the executive suite and it was a really large impressive room kept spotlessly clean by the hard...
