Just back from this fantastic hotel which I treated my wife to for her 40th. From the minute we pulled up to the impressive manor house we were greated with 5* treatment. We were upgraded to an executive room, helped with our luggage by the check in girl & had our car parked which made our check in very stress...

Restaurant coped well with the 30 of us for Sunday lunch. Good food, good service and attentive staff. Pretty good value too, considering. There is a choice of restaurants in the hotel. Plenty of parking too.

I attended Gala Dinner at this hotel. It is definitely my type of hotel. It is beautiful. Love the lobby, we had drinks reception there. The bar is so cosy. The dinner was lovely, the food was delicious, we missed out on side vegetables, but overall amazing night. I will definitely return to stay with my family.

When you walk into the hotel you are meet with a most beautiful reception area, with live piano music in the background. Check in was smooth and friendly. Our room even though a superior was pretty basic and old fashioned (not in a good way), we didn't use the health suite as it was fully booked. Breakfast was grand no...

We stayed at Lyrath overnight on a Saturday, as a weekend get away for two. Before departing, my girlfriend and I had heard excellent reports from friends and colleagues, and had high expectations that the hotel would be outstanding. We arrived to reception and found the staff under pressure to deal with a wedding party that were checking in. The...

To be fair to the Hotel, it is going through some restoration to bring it back to its former glory. Rooms pleasant, shower fantastic, beds comfortable. Sound proofing in rooms very good. Hand made soap lovely, nice having bottled water in rooms. Spa needs uplift, you are charged €15 each to use spa thermal pool, sauna and steam room, tropical...

We stayed for 1 night and it was a great experience. Food was amazing (there was any type of food) and the spa was the best I've ever had. Room was very clean and big, shower was huge. Definitely I would go back.

We stayed two nights for a wedding, which was a civil ceremony held in the drawing rooms of the original 17th century estate house followed by the reception in the newer conference facilities. It was beautiful inside, the whole venue is perfect for celebrations. From the outside the estate isn't particularly stunning, but that could possibly have seemed worse in...
