Manor House Dining

Our 17th century drawing rooms, which form part of Lyrath Manor House, are a truly unique setting for private events. The drawing rooms overlook Lady Charlotte’s formal 17th century gardens which were redeveloped to their original design, based on family records and photographs during the construction of the hotel. It is a truly picturesque setting and your guests will also have the option of enjoying the terrace that runs alongside the gardens.

Private Dining

Cocktail receptions for up to 120 guests can be catered for in the Manor house. Formal private dining, with white glove waiter service is available from 30 to 100 guests in the drawing room. Of course less formal options are also available – please contact our events team on 056 7760088/7705804 or email for further details.

The Wine Cellar

Lyrath Estate’s unique Wine Cellar, is a subterranean hideaway of old stone, wrought iron and magnificently carved timber found beneathYew Restaurant. It’s the perfect venue for a private party, or quiet evening with friends.

Browse the shelves of our walk-in, temperature controlled wine vaults, let our staff help you make your selection from one of our fine wines. The Wine Cellar has both old world and new world wines for guests to choose from. Once you have made your selection why not retreat to a corner and let the night take you and your party somewhere new and unexpected?

The Wine Cellar Bar can easily cater to the tastes of guests who prefer an alternative to wine. Please note that these menus are samples only and are subject to change without notice.
