We stayed three nights at Woodlands. This is a nice and clean place to stay. Very welcoming hosts and great Irish breakfasts. We had a lovely room with a small balcony and the room was fairly large, comfortable and well appointed. Good shower, probably the best in two weeks since leaving Sydney. Internet was most reliable. Good parking. Nice big... More

We have literally just spent the night here, recommended by Marlfield House and from the moment you turn in the gate it is easy to see why! A beautiful old Georgian house with stunning mature gardens... Around an old courtyard. Our beautiful room has a balcony looking out over the gardens... The very gracious hosts John & Philomena looked after... More

A stunning location. Very warm welcome and beautiful room. A very friendly and relaxing place to spend the night. There was even a honesty bar if you fancied a beer. As one person had written " it was like staying at your favourite Aunts' Can't recommend Woodlands enough.

Secluded, quiet location. Car needed but taxis available if going into Gorey to eat in the evenings. Scones and tea on arrival. Very old world but with wifi to boot. Away from traffic, tennis courts, pond and woodland on grounds. Fabulous breakfast grown in house garden or sourced locally. Tranquil and luxurious stay and I will be back.

On arrival we were given tea and hot scones, jam and cream. The place was spotless and eclectically and comfortably furnished with lots of antiques. Our bedroom was large and comfortable with views of the garden [no. 6]. We wandered round the large garden and if the day had been better would have enjoyed some peaceful reading by the large...

Like staying with a favorite aunt! Wonderful warm house, clean, well-appointed rooms and without doubt the best breakfast we had in our weeklong visit to Ireland. Lovely tea upon our arrival with fresh sweets. Philomena's soda bread was the gold standard.

We decided to try a quality B&B for a change from the hotel scene for our weekend away. My partner, who has chronic asthma is fed up with certain hotels who spray the carpets and mattresses with the chemicals used to kill off anything nasty. Looking at the photos and reviews on this site, of the Woodlands house, we thought... More

A wonderful stay. We were looked after perfectly. Scones and home made jam on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. It was so comfortable and a beautiful breakfast with home made jam and stewed fruit, wide choice of cereal, and choice of cooked. I had a walk in the woods before breakfast just over the road.
