Stayed in this hotel for two nights in July as part of a package with one nights dinner and bed and breakfast. The hotel is old, yes it has that old charm in the lobby and bar but I think more could be done with the rooms, they too are old, but more shabby, they could do with a revamp... More

We had our wedding here and between the extremely friendly, helpful, good humoured staff, excellent value for money, comfy areas for having a cuppa or quiet jar and the excellent food, you'd be daft not to look them up and give serious consideration to the Hotel for your special day ! Julie-Ann co-ordinated our day and she made it so... More

After visiting Avoca Village, we drove to the Woodenbridge Hotel for lunch in the bar as the main restaurant was not open, our waitress was extremely chirpy and friendly, and couldn't have been more accommodating. The service in general was very good.The bar eating area was pleasant if a little dated, and there were areas that were quite dusty, and... More

We stayed here having booked the Wicklow Golf Tour package. From the outset at booking I was impressed by the staff. Teresa & Michelle in Reservations took care of everything from rooms to tee bookings. The hotel is a beautiful old world hotel and set in stunning surroundings. Even after a bad day on the golf course its not hard... More

We stayed here for one night last weekend. Although the hotel is hard to find even with gps we were not disappointed when we got there!

I stayed in the Woodenbrige for 1 night. It is in a great location. A family run the hotel and are very friendly. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that there is no lift, but the staff were more than happy to help. The food is lovely especially the breakfast.

We stayed in the Lodge (annex) a five minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is quaint in a low ceiling, dark furniture kind of way. We didn't see the hotel bedrooms, which were full. The Lodge bedrooms were bright and we had a view over the river. A hearty Irish breakfast was enjoyable but don't forget to order some... More

My wife and I have been staying at this hotel every year since 2007 and one of the things we always enjoyed was the breakfast. As in the vast majority of Hotels across Ireland, guests could help themselves to cereal, grapefruit segments, prunes, yoghurt etc, before tucking into a hearty "full Irish" cooked breakfast. But not anymore! Some brightspark, perhaps... More

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable 3 days at the hotel. It was very pleasant and comfortable, without being overwhelmingly grand. The staff were local, friendly and helpful. The place, and the people, had a local, friendly atmosphere that appealed to me.
