My husband and I have visited this hotel on many occasions in the last twenty years and it never disappoints. This time we had a midweek stay in the lodge which was just across the road from the main hotel. The location of this hotel is truly stunning. Parking is great and the rooms are clean, bright and very well... More

Well located, The Woodenbridge has beautiful views. Enjoyed our stay there, visited it a few times, will visit again, definitely! Friendly staff, tasteful food served there. Very quiet location. Need to book in advance, as the rooms a flying out very fast.

Location gorgeous and easy to find. Views are lovely and if your lucky you may get a room with a balcony. When you book you need to make sure you are put into the refurbished rooms as the other ones are not great. Food is lovely and the staff are helpful.

We stayed in the Woodenbridge hotel for two nights using a Pigsback.com voucher. It was a really good price so we didn't have great expectations, but we were wrong! We have used vouchers like this once before and were given a terrible room and of course we wouldn't go back there. However, the Woodenbridge Hotel seems to realise that while... More

I did have few dinners in the hotel (didn't stay overnight though), but I would highly recommend it for the lunch/dinner. Good food, beautiful view from the dining/pub area looking at the Wicklow mountains and the woods, friendly and helpful staff and nice interiors recently renovated. Very nice place to go with the family for the dinner and enjoy beautiful... More

Always a warm welcome when you enter the woodenbridge hotel. Food is quite nice and a reasonable price too. They have done a lovely job on the new extension which over looks the hills and valley . You should try the pasta dishes very nice.
