Lyrath Estate

Certificate of Excellence
Lyrath Estate Kilkenny is nothing if not unique. Located on 170 acres complete with picturesque lakes, historic gardens and woodlands, Lyrath Estate is the definitive country resort hotel while also boasting a location in Kilkenny City, the historic heartland of Ireland. The historic 17th Century Estate House sits elegantly alongside the dramatic design of the contemporary extension in a striking architectural example of the successful marriage of old and new. Lyrath Estate boasts 139 unique bedrooms, the multi-award winning Oasis Spa and incorporates the Kilkenny Convention Centre. Now, having undergone an extensive 3 year transformation including the addition of new facilities, there is no better time to Experience Lyrath Estate.
