There are several dining outlets on the estate including La Perla restaurant which serves Mediterranean and classical cuisine with a modern twist, Yindees Restaurant, an Asian inspired outlet and Tupper’s Bar, a traditional pub. The conservatory also serves light lunches and morning and afternoon teas and enjoys wonderful views onto ‘Lady Charlotte’s Garden’, the beautiful old rose garden, created by a previous owner who lived in the original house

The property has a large conference centre and can cater for large conferences and events in the purpose-built Convention Centre seating up to 1,500 people and has all of the very latest in technological and conferencing equipment. Lyrath Estate is a multi-award winning luxury hotel, spa and wedding venue offering some of the finest accommodation, dining, and conference facilities in Ireland.
