One lucky winner will win a getaway for two to Kilkenny
Are you looking for a luxurious five-star staycation this summer? Do you want to sit back and be spoilt with indulgent food and world class hospitality in the heart of Ireland? Then look no further than the 5-star Lyrath Estate in Kilkenny! Set amid 170 acres of mature parkland yet just 1.2 kilometres from the medieval city of Kilkenny the hotel itself has been built around an elegant 17th century house which has been returned to its former glory through sympathetic preservation. The drama of the old house and the clean, contemporary design of the hotel are blended seamlessly, offering guests the very best in luxury hotel accommodation.
Facilities include a spa, 17-metre swimming pool, gym, sauna, jacuzzi, private cinema, ballroom and conference centre. The award-winning Oasis Spa incorporates several treatment rooms, a thermal suite and a stunning outdoor hydrotherapy pool which overlooks the extensive gardens.
There are several dining outlets on the estate including the 2 AA Rosette Yew Restaurant which serves internationally inspired cuisine and The Grill & Bar offering delicious steaks, signature burgers, pasta dishes and fresh fish and lobster. Lady Charlotte’s Tea Rooms serves afternoon tea daily while The Conservatory is a lovely, light filled space where guests can enjoy casual food while enjoying views of the formal garden. Tupper’s Bar, the traditional pub at the hotel is a great place to enjoy a quiet drink and a chat and is well known for its delicious cocktails and perfect Guinness! There is even a completely covered, outdoor BBQ area which can be used for al fresco dining.
Outdoor pursuits include falconry where guests can fly their own bird of prey and cycling along the private, verdant nature trails. If you want to get out and explore the local area you can ask chef to prepare a picnic or you might prefer to simply sink into a deep sofa and enjoy a nice glass of wine. The choice is yours!
One lucky Irish Country Magazine reader will win a two-night stay at Lyrath Estate for two people with breakfast each morning and dinner on one evening. You and your guest will also be treated to bubbles on arrival!
