Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Lyrath over the weekend. This hotel is absolutely beautiful. I could not fault this hotel in any way. The Oasis spa is stunning and ideal for a stress free break away. The staff were so helpful and could not help us enough. The food in Tuppers bar was lovely and the setting was so relaxing. I would visit this hotel and take the kids the next time as it is ideal for families.

We stayed in this hotel to celebrate a family birthday so there was an age range from 3-62, and there was something to suit everyone! The swimming pool and spa were both brilliant! The hotel itself was of high standard! The rooms were cleaned twice daily and the entire hotel was spotless! The grounds surrounding the hotel were also amazing! It is situated just outside kilkenny about a 5 minute drive into the town. Breakfast was really good! The only downfall was our meal on both nights in the restaurants, service was slow but I think this was down to kitchen staff more so than the waiters as they couldn't do enough for us! Overall a brilliant stay!

Afternoon tea was gorgeous then we did the hydrotherapy pool, sauna and went to relaxation rooms and had a lovely cold drink and some fruit We where then called by our therapists for our facial it was amazing came out feeling wonderful and so relaxed. All in all lyrath is an excellent hotel, we hope to be back again :)

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for two nights and we can honestly say we have never felt relaxation like it. The grounds are magnificent and lucky enough for us the weather didnt disappoint. The food in the thai restaurant is amazing and so was breakfast although the bar food did disappoint slightly as did the receptionist on check in, she didnt seem to be aware of the package we had booked and we did have to ask twice to have the wine we were to receive in the room on arrival to be delivered, it was, 3hrs after we checked in!! But they are only minor issues and this hotel is definately worth a visit if you feel like treating yourself to a couple of days of r&r!!!! Quick mention for the barman james, one of the friendliest guys you could meet despite being contstantly busy buzzing around the bar he still took the time to have a chat and a laugh, he is definately an asset to your gem of a hotel. We will most definately be back.

This is a great hotel. we were here for just one day. Kilkenny is a great town, but not a good base for visiting other cities in Ireland. The hotel and staff is outstanding. Pool, spa and sauna facilities was great. Breakfast selection was great. If this hotel was in Killarney we would have stay longer.
