“Top class hotel!! Top class food!!”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

I've never given a review before but because of the high quality received here i felt compelled to write.Myself and my young family stayed here for an extended family get together.The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and above all kid friendly.The hotel was spotless,the rooms perfect and the bar, big and spacious.The kids loved kardio kids and the spotless clean pool,here again the staff were friendly and helpful.At one stage i totally forgot my change from the bar and the bar manager made it his business to find me to give it back,this was a first for me and should be applauded for his honesty!The best,had to be the food,one word...perfection!!!!.32 adults and 8 children sat for the meal.Every course was top class and cooked perfectly.Portions were generous and every plate was left clean.Two days later, everyone is still talking about the high quality of the cooking.Every aspect of this hotel was brilliant and we will definitely be returning.The food alone would bring me back.....highly recommended.

Stayed in this hotel for three nights B & B plus one evening meal. Could not fault anything with our stay, hotel is beautiful, spacious, bright & modern and spotlessly clean. Leisure centre was fab, have never seen so many kids use a swimming pool in a hotel before, lifeguard had games organised for the kids and apparently they have a great kids play area. This did not apply to us so can only comment on what I saw in the pool. Lester and all the staff were courteous, cheerful, friendly and helpful. Good selection for breakfast and food was too a very high standard, had our meal in the restaurant on the Sat night, have to admit, the food was exceptional. Have stayed in many hotels over the years and would rate this in my top three (and I am very critical). Requested a wheelchair accesible room which we got, and which was great, could maybe look at putting foldable seats onto the wall for people who have limited mobility. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return, would recommend to anyone...actually really can not recoomend this hotel highly enough.

Dear, 186605Fiona,
Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately due to a quieter mid-week business, it makes sense to combine Restaurant and Bar Menus in order for us to work more efficiently. Staff not informing you of this is not acceptable, and I have ensured this has rectified. Hope to see you soon again.
Sincerely,
Frank Corby, GM

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 5 and 7 have just returned from halloween w/end break here. Hotel entrance was covered in decorations which the girls loved. Reception staff on arrival and departure were extremely friendly. Our room was 120, spotlessly clean, plenty big enough for us, temperature control in the room which can easily be regulated to suit yer needs. NO toilet brush. Lots of towels and plenty shower gel etc. Kardio Kids is around the corner and cost 5 euros for as long as you like BUT you can not leave the play area no matter what age your children are. There was a halloween party 6.30-9 where you can leave children over 5 and you provide a contact no for them if they need you. Girls LOVED this time, as did we. Pool was spotless and opens at 9am. Breakfast was NOT good, not enough food on display, if you asked for scrambled or boiled eggs or even yougarts you got them, but they werent ready available. Toaster kept burning everyone toast,cutlery was not clean, just small details. Overall great value for money, we rested, girls had a ball, Brilliant value we will definatly return here again.

This hotel is fabulous from start to finish our stay was faultless. The staff were amazing and the meal that we had in the restaurant was superb every course was cooked to perfection. Our little boy loved the playcentre that was attached to the hotel he had hours of fun there. I would highly recommend this hotel especially to family's with young children.

We stayed in this hotel on a weekend break (2 Adults & 1 Child). Overall it was a very positive experience, the hotel was spotless, the staff from the receptionist (Veronica) who was very helpful on check-in (even remembering our sons name anytime we passed reception) to the bar and waiting staff were all very very friendly. We had a meal in the evening which was fabulous and great value. We used the leisure centre and again, very clean and great staff. The only issues of note were, we stayed in room 225, again this was very clean, but only one toilet roll, no tissues in the bathroom or no toilet brush either also the TV was a small old version model and the sound was poor at best. Also there is a hair dryer provided which is fixed into a unit, but the flex is not long enough to reach the mirror.

In general a great hotel but was let down by the attention to detail, but would have no hesitation in staying again.

We have stayed at the Raheen Woods hotel many times. Each time they have exceeded our exceptions. The atmosphere in the hotel is very welcoming. The staff are very helpful & friendly and will do whatever they can to help make your stay enjoyable.
The food is amazing & the portions were generous, everything cooked to perfection. The bar is a great place to relax and enjoy a few pints. The decore is modern yet cosy. We had our wedding here in June 2011 & couldnt have asked for a better place to have entertained our guests throughtout the celebrations.
The rooms were clean, comfortable & great value for money. We have a 4 year old who was delighted to find the indoor play area next door. He was kept entertained by the children's library section in the bar area during dinner. This place really is a hidden gem within the irish country side of Athenry and would definitely recommend this place.
