Dear Guest, I'm sorry that your stay was not of the usual high standards we set ourselves, and your experience is thankfully at odds with the vast majority of guests who stay with us during the year. I have no record of any complaint on check out, which is a pity as I would have been more than happy to... More

Spent one night during our honeymoon at this amazing hotel. The surrounding area is wonderful. Need to relax?? Then just go there. Whenever i am stressed out in everday's routine, I get a "woodenbridge moment" which helps me out during the rest of day. Would love to literally get another woodenbridge moment in the near future.

We always visit this hotel when we are staying in Wicklow. We receive a warm welcome and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
