  • Welcome to Lyrath Estate

    Lyrath Estate Kilkenny is unlike anywhere else. Our grounds are spread across 170 acres of Irish countryside, complete with picturesque lakes, historic gardens, and emerald woodlands. Lyrath Estate offers the best of both worlds. It is a definitive country resort hotel, located in Kilkenny City, a lively centre widely renowned as the medieval heart of Ireland.

    The historic 17th Century Estate House sits elegantly alongside its modern-day extension, demonstrating the triumphant marriage of old and new. Lyrath Estate is home to 139 unique bedrooms, the multi-award-winning Oasis Spa, and 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.

    Tupper’s Bar

    Tupper’s Bar is part of Lyrath Estate’s original 17th Century Manor House. In many ways, it is the heart of the hotel.
