From beginning to end, our trip to Lyrath was nothing short of phenomenal. With sun shining, I drove through beautiful grounds on the approach to the hotel car park. Only a stones throw from Dublin (one hour and 20 minutes approx.), I was met by Clodagh who made the half hour journey from her base in Co. Waterford. We checked in and made our way to Tupper’s Bar to enjoy a welcome drink and catch up, while relaxing in the outdoor patio area to the rear of the hotel.
Following a little stroll around the pristinely manicured gardens, we made our way to the bedroom to ready ourselves for the much anticipated picnic – it did not disappoint! The hotel had packed an ‘oh so cute’ basket of goodies like unto that which you would expect of an exquisite afternoon tea. Clodagh and I could not believe our eyes and ate until our hearts were content while enjoying the sun and the view of the beautiful hotel itself. Next time, we will bring a picnic blanket!
I made a little video compilation (below) for you to experience the lovely Lyrath for yourself - I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks Lyrath for a wonderful Irish Staycation in the beautiful Co. Kilkenny. I hope to see you again soon.
