Indoor Activities

Lyrath Estate Hotel has a wealth of both indoor and outdoor activities on offer throughout the year. Lyrath Estate is so much more than just a hotel, it is a place to relax, unwind and have some well-earned down time. To some of our guests that means enjoying a beloved book over afternoon tea in The Atrium, overlooking the courtyard & lake, for others something more active or interactive is called for.
