Woodstock Arms Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 6 Inistioge B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We had a great stay here. We were 8 adults, 4 couples, and because we were travelling in the low season, we were given our choice of rooms. It was super bowl Sunday and the host put the bedroom tv tuned to the game, but also allowed us to stay late in one of their side rooms where they continued serving us while we watched the game and the bar was being cleaned. The bartender was super friendly, and the host served us a great breakfast the next day. It was a wonderful stay!

We stayed here on sunday we had been at a christening in the neighbouring village but the Woodstock arms had been recommended to us by a friend to stay. Its a family owned premisis and they were very friendly on arrival. We were late checking in which was not a problem. We had some drinks in the bar which is a part of the B&B. Sometimes when you go to a local village pub you can get a bit of a funny vibe from the locals but not here. Everyone from the bar staff to the locals were so nice and chatted away and we had a great night. We went up to the woodstock park the next day for a walk which was like something from a post card. If you have a free weekend and not wanting to spend a lot of money i would recommend a visit to Inistioge and staying in the woodstock arms.

Picture the scene: first night of the holiday, staying at the Woodstock Arms in Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny, caught the lunchtime Swift ferry from Holyhead to Dublin and it's 10th June 2012. I'm in the bar with a Guinness and of course there's Ireland v Croatia on the television, the first match in the European Championship. So the Irish lost, but what a lovely atmosphere and they take defeat in their stride. There's a smashing breakfast at the Woodstock the next morning before I take a gentle drive around Co. Wexford. I found the church in Clodiagh on the way back to Inistioge with a plaque on the wall that read: Whenever I pass this little church, I always pay a visit, Lest on the day I'm carried in, The Lord should say '' Who is it?'' Wisdom as well as grace in this land.
We're booked for Ireland again on September 1st 2013 and that same Sunday ferry. I am sure that it will be back to the Woodstock Arms in Inistioge, a beautiful and peaceful spot with that hospitality offered by Annette and her partner.

Room Tip: I stayed in a downstairs room at the front and found it very pleasant.

I was walking the south Leinster way recently with some friends. We stayed overnight and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was very nice and the staff were very pleasant. The bar is a real old gem and was full of locals chatting the evening away. Including the charming gentleman that told me he was a click past eithty. He would have gotten away with a click past 70 easily. The walking was beautiful from Inisteoige to Graiguenamanna. However as is with most way marked ways in Ireland the signage left a lot to be desired. I just cannot understand for the life of me why we cannot get something so simple right. Trails.ie could also do an awful lot better. Maybe the locals should take this by the scruff of the neck and turn this beautiful oasis into a real walking destination. A truly beautiful destination for the gathering.

We stayed in the Woodstock Arms in Inistioge recently, beautifully set in heavily-wooded lands in South Kilkenny - a hidden gem of Ireland and delightful for walking, though the way-marking on the South Leinster Way could be improved. The Arms is a pub, plus bed-and-breakfast, with hospitable hosts, spotlessly-clean rooms and friendly service. Highly recommended, though ask for a room at the back if you are a light sleeper - not that the pub is noisy, because it isn't. One point, though: the owners, along with the rest of Inistioge could make so much more of walking holidays, given that they are just 90 minutes from Dublin.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

Just back from 4 nights at the Woodstock Arms - and loved it! Really good pub, helpful and friendly hosts (thanks Annette and Richard), top breakfasts and in a lovely part of Ireland. Evening food can be a challenge (only 1 restaurant open - but a good one!) but great alternatives in easy distance - especially the Sol in Thomastown - and always the pub to get back to.
