Lovely old style hospitality. Beautiful scenery. Friendly welcome. Breakfast served to your table which is rare these days. The girls serving breakfast are super. Plates piping hot. Very tasty homemade brown bread and banana bread. Great pint in the bar. Well worth a vist. We stayed in the lodge a 2 mi ute walk away.

We stayed for 2 nights, and would highly recommend the Woodenbridge Hotel, in the centre of Ireland's most beautiful countryside. Great value for money and the food in the hotel was delicious - a return journey is definitely on the cards for us!

When he was... More

Stayed with friends for 2 nights in the hotel and was not disappointed. Our rooms were clean, and had small balconies. The view was gorgeous.The staff was friendly and welcoming. Wish they had a lift rather than just stairs to get to the rooms. The bar food was very good. We did not eat dinner in the main dining room.... More
