“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Stayed here recently on a golf trip to play in a classic in Druids Glen. We arrived at 11am and our rooms were ready. I shared a twin room with a friend and the room was super overlooking the 13th tee, 48" plazma tv in the room. Thank God the mini bar was empty.
The porter took us to the golf course by courtsy car so the only driving to be done was on the golf course.
We got back to the hotel around 2am and there was a wedding windind up, the residents bar was nice, but €5.20 for a pint of Carlsberg was over the top.
Breakfast was excellent with a hugh choice from smoked salmon to a chef to cook an omlett for you.
Excellent hotel but a little hard to find as the roads around it ar enot great.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We stayed in the druids glen resort hotel 21 September 2012 for 2 nights.While I agree with other reviews the staff are great and it is only for them that this hotel can call itself 5 star.

The place itself falls down on attention to detail you expect when you stay at a 5 star hotel.

The two rooms we were assigned, ours had a very noisy air condition which in fairness to staff they change us to another room. However my mum and dad was not so lucky. They are in their 70s and kept feeling the cold for the two nights but said nothing to hotel fearing hassle. it was only on the last day that I discovered the window latch in room 319 was broken and the window could not close.

As a five star hotel you would expect that the house staff would have pointed out these defects to management and they would be fixed before guest arrived. Or failing this is they were aware of 319 window not place elderly guest in such a room.

So Druids Glen in my opinion you failed to live up to a five star rating which spoiled our excitement treating mum and dad to such luxury.

Room Tip: Chek windows close and aircon is not noisy

The hotel is very relaxed and the staff are excellent. Food was very tasty. Stayed in a superior room and this was a pleasure.

The pool is nice and if you play golf this resort is ideal.

Would be great if the walks could be developed a bit more to give better access to the fabulous grounds.

Room Tip: Superior room or suite all the way

Everything was great at this report, from staff to food. Hotel rooms are well kept and staff was very friendly yet professional. There are two gold courses and both of them, and it's a great place for golfers. For those who are not, you can still enjoy great food (chicken I ate here was DE best chicken ever!) and relax in the very Irish rural landscape.

I'd recommend this place to just about anybody.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room. It's much bigger than normal rooms.

Cannot fault this hotel; it is one staffed by some of the most professional employees we have come across. Nothing was a problem to them; they were always smiling and happy and very approachable. Room was comfortable, clean and a good size. We dined on both nights of our stay in the restaurant and the food was excellent on all fronts - choice; presentation and fantastic value.

Our only regret was not bringing our golf clubs to play the courses as the weather was excellent but there is so much to do in County Wicklow! We will be back soon. Thank you to all at Druids Glen!

I stayed one night here and was very impressed.
The hotel itself is nicely decorated and has a lovely decking area looking over the golf course.
the beds were very comfortable.
I was especially impressed by the breakfast served till 11am and everything you could want and all fresh!
The spa was lovely , I had a facial which was really relaxing and the girls gave us a couple of portions of fresh fruit afterwards as we spent so long in the relaxation room!
I would definitely return.

I got married in Druids Glen in August and would highly recommend the hotel both to future brides and guests alike. I couldn't have hoped for a more perfect day. Their wedding coordinator Nessa is amazing - patient, helpful, efficient - she made the whole build up completely stress free. As soon as we met her, we knew we were in safe hands. The day itself was fabulous - beautiful food, decor, atmosphere - just perfect.

For guests, the hotel combines the perfect mix of 5 star service with a relaxed atmosphere. Many of our guests booked in for several nights (some extending their stay after the first night!). All commented on the amazing customer service - sadly a rarity in other large hotels. The numerous seating areas throughout the foyer and bars meant that people could relax and chat without feeling on top of one another. We really milked the wedding celebrations and had a BBQ the day after the wedding which was superb. My father has coeliac disease and the chef ensured there were numerous options for him - even down to a specially made fruit salad at my dad's request! As an example of the customer service, after the first morning the waiting staff remembered his dietary requirements and immediately brought him gluten free bread etc without him having to ask. It's those little touches that make all the difference.

Now that the wedding is over - i'm just looking for an excuse to return to Druids Glen. I can definitely see my family booking in for celebrations in the years to come.
