Our guests can’t stop raving about the treatment they received and how wonderful their experience was! For us, the day was more wonderful than we could have ever imagined, and greatly exceeded our expectations. We have you to thank for that with all of your help along the way! We want to thank you so much for everything that you did for us.

We are so pleased we chose Lyrath Estate Hotel for our wedding reception. The support we received on the build to the wedding and on the day was exceptional, a five star service from beginning to end. Iona, the wedding co-ordinator is wonderful. Her prompt response to emails and willingness to help us was endearing and ensured a very stress free bride and therefore a happy groom!! Alan and Darragh, the banquet managers were extremely helpful and supportive also, nothing was ever an issue and no request was too big for them. The day was seamless , we couldn’t have imagined a better wedding day, it was nothing short of magical. The rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits , the outstanding food, location and service made certain everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did! We cannot recommend the Lyrath enough.
