Cliff at Lyons is a privately owned luxury hotel occupying an unusual collection of historic rose-clad buildings, including a mill and former dovecote, in rural Kildare a 30-minute drive from Dublin. This is a hotel and country retreat with 38 bedrooms spread out across rooms, apartments and cottages. Cliff at Lyons is home to two-Michelin star restaurant Aimsir and the multi-award-winning The Well in The Garden spa. With Christmas fast approaching, give the gift of CLIFF with a luxury voucher. Choose from monetary or curated packages tailored to suit all budgets to ensure your loved ones have something to look forward to.


The two-Michelin star restaurant Aimsir is led by Cornwall-born chef Jordan Bailey, former head chef at three-star Michelin Maaemo in Oslo. An all-island restaurant, the best producers and growers from all over Ireland have been invited to be part of this new celebration of the most powerful, significant and influential force in this country – the weather.

Aimsir Lounge Here you can snack on set plates of garden treats, house made breads or crackers and charcuterie with foraged pickles and preserves and excellent Irish Cheese. Open Wed – Sat 3:00pm to late.


The Pantry is open for tempting takeaways of seasonal soups and warming hotpots of the day, fresh sandwiches, snacks, coffee and light lunch options from 9:30am Wednesday – Sunday perfect for when you are on the go.

Join Chef Sean Smith in Trellis for delicious country classics Wednesday to Sunday from 12:30pm. Indulge in mouth watering Rib-eye steaks, Monkfish on the Bone and Crème Brûlée.

Or perhaps spend an evening in The Orangery with delicious charcuterie and cheese boards, wine from our cellar or a classic cocktail. Open Wed – Sun from 3:00pm.


The Well in the Garden is a luxury award-winning spa set in the beautifully restored Carriage House building. Signature spa treatments include our CLIFF Swedish Massage, Warm Bamboo Massage and CLIFF Body Care. Our team at The Well in The Garden were delighted to receive the award for ‘Most Innovative Spa Brand‘ for The Well at CLIFF at the Image Business of Beauty Awards 2019.

Open Thursday – Sunday 10:00am-6:00pm.


With 38 rooms spread out in eight separate lock yard buildings and cottages, Cliff at Lyons is ideal for exclusive-use events, from corporate meetings to team-building exercises. It is also perfect for weddings. Our sprawling, open lawns accommodate parties of up to 120 people without a sense of crowding, whilst enclosed gardens and intimate spaces dotted across the estate are ideal for smaller groups. The 22 seat San Pedro chapel is a particularly picturesque setting for a wedding blessing. Our chefs can cater for a diverse range of tastes and preferences among large groups.
