Myself and my husband stayed in Woodenbridge on 23rd and 24th August 2015. We arrived around 3.30pm, a lovely friendly man named Bill checked us in our room had a big four poster bed, very comfy room. The place was buzzing. We ate both nights in the bar, the food was fab. This hotel is old and has loads of... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel 2 nights while visiting the Wicklow mountains, Avoca, Brittas Bay and the Meeting of the Waters. We've been 5 years before so know what to expect. This trip was a bit disappointing. They have renovated the Lodge which is tailored towards weddings but is too detached from the hotel. We stayed in... More

Stayed in the Lodge for a night break on our way home Receptionist was very professional, talkative and friendly-actually both in the Hotel and the Lodge. Reasonable sized room with a balcony overlooking grass and the river which was covered by trees. Could not complain about food and service and our young waitress. Nothing was any bother. Breakfast was juice... More

I stayed here for an anniversary weekend and couldn't have picked a more perfect place... full of old world charm and character. It's the kind of place that's cosy in the winter but then the perfect summer place too because of it's lovely surroundings and fab walks. Our room was charming (I love places that have a bit of history... More

Had a very pleasant short golf trip to Wicklow. Stayed in Woodenbridge hotel lodge. Very modern and practical and very good value. Dinner in the Restaurant was excellent. Lodge slightly short of facility, no fridge or minibar. An ice machine in the area would be a good idea as Bar is 5 minutes away. Played Coollatton golf course which was... More

We stayed here recently for one night. We were offered a room in the lodge but asked for a hotel room because we had a baby and everything would be closer. The man at reception was completely honest and offered my the last two rooms in the hotel which were over the bar also. We took room 102. You could... More

What a gem of a hotel. You can feel the history from the moment you first cast your eye on the place. Stayed for a night with some pals and we enjoyed a delicious freshly prepared dinner served by attentive and friendly staff followed by some mellow music in the bar. Fantastic to stay in a place with minimal pretensions... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind comments, it is lovely to hear from you. Woodenbridge has played a significant role in Irish history, and the hotel is the oldest in Ireland dating all the way back to 1608. We are quite conscious of the immense history of the hotel and strive to maintain the old world charm, with pictures... More

The hotel is nice enough but this is essentially a pub and the sound in the rooms is ridiculous. Don't stay here if you want a quiet night or to get any sleep. I have no choice but to sit up writing a bad review when I wish I was sleeping but listening to bad guitar music and shouting from... More

Dear Guest Apologies about the noise during your stay. The bar is quite lively at weekends and particularly in peak season, but we do our best to try and allocate the rooms so that people who are not in the bar, doing the signing, get quieter rooms. I would love a chance to discuss this with you directly if you... More

I often don't bother writing reviews, but having spent a couple of nights here with my girlfriend this week I felt the need to write something about the excellent service I received here.
