Lyrath Estate

WIN: A fun family getaway to the luxurious Lyrath Estate in Kilkenny

Cycle around the estate’s 170 acres, or head to the leisure centre.

HOW DOES A midweek escape with the family sound for a treat as the summer holidays begin?

We’ve teamed up with Lyrath Estate in Kilkenny to give one lucky reader of‘s Family Magazine a chance to win a midweek break. The prize includes a one-night break away with breakfast for two adults and two children at the hotel, along with dinner for the adults. 

Spread across 170 acres of Irish countryside, the 17th century estate house sits alongside its modern extension and is surrounded by picturesque lakes, historic gardens and beautiful woodlands. 

Families are sure to be kept busy at the estate, with swimming pool, snooker room, a new playground and complimentary use of bicycles for adults and children to tour around in the estate. Plus, the hotel’s 22-seater private cinema can be booked for families and groups. Movie night, anyone?

The leisure centre facilities include a gym, a 17-metre swimming pool with a steam room and jacuzzi, or if you’re looking to unwind a little more, the hotel’s award-winning Oasis Spa is sure to do the trick, with ten treatment rooms, a thermal suite and an outdoor pool. 

For those who are able to drag themselves away from the tranquility of the estate, Kilkenny city is just a five-minute drive away.
