Mother’s Day experiences at Lyrath Estate and ‘The Stepping Into Spring Package’ at the Kilkenny based countryside resort
Lyrath Estate, on the doorstep of the medieval city of Kilkenny, is a fitting destination to put a spring in your step! Located just five minutes from the centre of Kilkenny City yet set on 170 acres of mature parkland complete with picturesque lakes, woodland trails and historic gardens. It’s hard to believe when surrounded by nature that the estate is so accessible to the city centre and its many cultural and historical attractions. Now, with the arrival of spring, the estate is coming to life with signs of nature awakening everywhere.
Step into spring at Lyrath Estate with the ‘Stepping Into Spring’ package. This midweek experience includes two night’s accommodation with breakfast each morning, a delicious 3-course dinner in The Grill restaurant on one evening with a complimentary cream tea on a day of your choice. (From €185 per person sharing midweek).
Lyrath Estate is a resort style property, independently owned hotel, which has been extensively refurbished over the years. At its heart is a charming 17th century Manor House which has been sympathetically restored and now sits comfortably alongside a contemporary hotel housing 141 bedrooms.
The property includes two restaurants, Yew which serves classic modern Irish and European cuisine, The Grill and Bar which is a casual, bistro style dining experience with a strong emphasis on steaks, gourmet burgers, delicious lobster fresh from the tank and a wonderful selection of cocktails. There is also Tupper’s Bar, a traditional style, cosy bar, and The Conservatory which serves lunch and informal food in the evening. The newest addition is Lady Charlotte’s Drawing Room – an elegant room in the Manor House, where delightful afternoon tea is served. The décor here is inspired by the botanicals of the estate and has an eclectic and stylish design.
If you wish to enjoy some pampering, be sure to visit Oasis Spa at Lyrath Estate which incorporates several treatment rooms, offering face and body treatments for both men and women. The thermal suite in the spa includes various heating and cooling experiences and a stunning outdoor hydrotherapy pool with views over the mature, private gardens. On the estate, residents can enjoy walking amidst the private grounds, cycling on the verdant hidden trails or a host of outdoor pursuits including archery and falconry at the onsite Hawkeye School of Falconry where all kinds of birds of prey can be found including owls, hawks and even eagles. Kilkenny City itself offers lots of local attractions for the explorer such as the Kilkenny Castle, Park & Gardens, St. Canice’s Cathedral, Butler Gallery, or you could step out on Ireland’s Medieval Mile and discover the rich history of Kilkenny.
