            I would definitely recommend this hotel for a good break. We were there for two nights and never left the place, it was so lovely. The breakfast is outstandingly good. Really fabulous. The bistro food was also great. Excellent steaks. The spa itself is very nice too. Super-relaxing. The walks are worth doing too, and are well-signposted.

            The hotel is luxurious, room very comfortable and large. Staff courteous and friendly. Surroundings - gardens etc very nice.

            The breakfast was not up to standard for a 5 star hotel.

            The location was very relaxing and the staff were most helpful, we had requested a twin room but were shown a double room but they were happy to change it immediately and were very helpful

            one person at a nearby breakfast tabke insisted to shouting down his mobile phone for most of the breakfast which I felt was out of keeping with the style of the hotel and his language at times was strong with young children about. Apart from that we took a meal in the dinning room which was very good althought I thought the prices on the wine list a bit steep

            Lovely hotel but although we'd arranged early check in this was not possible and despite the delay the room was still not clean. There was some food and crisps on the floor, disgusting.

            Poor choice of wine for those on a budget.

            10.0

            The Hotel is fanatastic! The facilities for children were excellent. The walks around the grounds were beautiful and the food was of a very high standard. We really enjoyed our stay.

            Attended a wedding at this hotel. The wedding , like most Irish weddings went on 'til 4 in the morning so it made sense to stay the night. The venue is lovely and we were very well looked after. The rooms are first class, big spacious, dressing area, and the bathroom divided into three sections.Wine and chocolates left in the rooms, water, tea and coffee. Everything you could .want.Ordered breakfast in bed next morning and it arrived on the dot. Staff are first class without going over the top. Lyrath estate has beautiful gardens a five star hotel in a five star location. Will stay again. Did not have time to visit the spa , but the treatments looked inviting.!

            Stayed twice before in Lyrath Hotel and will be staying again in the future, beautiful location and building, very comfortable and relaxing. Staff were fanastic and very professional and helpful at all times, especially the reception staff and Tom.

            Was un-happy with the fact had to que two mornings for breakfast (15mins) which was unacceptable, as a result our Tea/Coffee and Toast was Cold, found the breakfast room very nosiey with a lot of young children crying and running around, not very nice when trying to have your breakfast, my sister also stayed and expressed the same views regarding the queing and noise level with kids running around..
