Cliff at Lyons – County Kildare, Ireland


More like a village than a hotel, comprises a number of glorious old rose-clad buildings centred on a paved courtyard at Lyons Demesne, a 600-acre estate outside Dublin. The privately-owned Irish hospitality group bought what was known as ‘The Village at Lyons’ in 2016 and opened it as a hotel. Split between the buildings, the 39 rooms range in style from classic – chintz, wood panelling and antiques, to contemporary – smart plain fabrics and fashionable design. There are also self-contained apartments and cottages. Nobody could resist dinner in the all-glass, domed Orangery, the perfect setting to showcase Nathan Dimond’s elegantly-designed menus. These focus on local produce, including the famous Dublin Bay prawns, Galway oysters and Irish cheeses. Activities include canal-side walks and bike rides, or a pampering session in Well in the Garden, a luxury spa in the beautifully restored Carriage House. Fabulous for a wedding, celebratory event or simply a holiday.


The flora and fauna on the Canal Towpath. Guest can opt to walk, cycle or take a barge trip.


Our signature dessert: Organic Chocolate 75 % with Olive Oil, Toasted White Chocolate Ice-cream, Sea Salt and Caramel.. Pair with a glass of “Tanzania – Single Plantation 2015”.


Easy to find but very hard to leave, The Pantry at CLIFF is a tempting store packed with an array of lovely goodies and treats, and the perfect place to find a little piece of CLIFF to take away with you.
