We visited the Woodenbridge with our Irish family for a Sunday lunch. The food was exceptional especially the beef and yorkshire pudding, although it would have been even better if we had been served roast potatoes as we were given boiled which are not right with a roast!!

I've stayed in this hotel a number of times most recently in 2015. Although it has charming old fashioned decor and ambience, the staff, service and food are absolutely top class. The rooms in the hotel are full of character and old world charm however the rooms in the lodge across the road are a bit more generic, both very... More

Spent a weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed the break. We had a lovely room called DeValera. The rooms all seem to be named. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is fantastic, good home cooking and plenty of it. They bake their own tasty brown bread which is delicious. This is an old hotel full of character without mod... More
