Beautiful hotel in fantastic grounds. Under new management now who have given the hotel a bit of a facelift. Food is delicious and they're not mean on the portions. Staff are really lovely and helpful and down to earth. We will definitely be returning to this hotel.

The double room was clean and smart, the bed was comfy and had everything I needed. I found the hotel very welcoming, the bar and food was great and the... More

What a fantastic location and brilliant value for money. In complete contrast to the infamous €2.50 bags of tayto in another hotel we got tea,two sandwiches,two spirits and one mineral for less than€25 and B&B for two €69 who wouldn't want to stay here. I most certainly will be back. Thanks a million to the very happy and welcoming staff.

Attended the wedding of two good friends here last month. From start to finish EVERYTHING was exquisite. Well done all at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel. Food, service, the staff, all top notch. This hotel has done a complete 360 with its transformation.

We always feel compelled to write a review when we receive exceptional 1st class service that is genuine and true. Every aspect of our stay was wonderful so much so that we cannot overlook any aspect.
