Located just 1 hours drive from Dublin City and Dublin Airport. Tulfarris offers 200 acres of woodland which is worth exploring, with on and off-site walks and trails. The on-site walks are focused around the golf course which means they can only be walked by our guests during twilight hours (summer - after 6pm). Glendalough, Russborough House and the Dublin/Wicklow mountains are all worth a visit.
Hotel is beautiful and food was out of this world. We arrived late, and had difficulty getting through to the hotel to move our restaurant reservation however the receptionist re-booked us once we arrived and we weren't disappointed by the food, it was the highlight of our stay When we checked in no details were given about breakfast times, or location, check out time or facilities onsite. Our room was in the back of the hotel, the room was spotless with crisp clean linen but the bed was a double, not a kingsize bed. I've never stayed in a hotel that has double beds in their rooms, and as our own bed at home is superking I thought this was strange. Beds were super comfy though with plenty of pillows We had issues with our noisy neighbours but one call to reception and the night porter resolved that issue within 5 minutes. The bathroom left a lot to be desired with a stained toilet seat and really poor shower head in terms of power. We had breakfast early, and were met by the friendliest, most customer focused waitress I've come across in a long time. I'm afraid I didn't get her name but she had red hair and was super smiley Overall we had a good stay, food was amazing and definitely one to write home about but we weren't overly impressed by the rooms
Friendly staff, amazing food! Highly recommend
Great night in Tulfarris. Lovely warm welcome from Karen on arrival. Dinner was fabulous & one of the nicest non-greasy breakfasts ever. Bedroom was spotless & big comfy bed. Perfect for touring around Wicklow. Will defo go back!
Lovely hotel in a quiet part of Blessington. Fantastic setting. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nice to make use of the spa facilities in the Osprey hotel. Dinner & breakfast were great too.
We enjoyed a truly fabulous one night stay. Room was very spacious and immaculately clean. The meals were excellent and all staff were particularly welcoming, helpful and attentive. We will be going back as soon as we can.
Stayed one night here in September. Staff really nice, room was very large, which was nice, and bed was a 6 foot wide one. Could have done with a blanket, as all that was provided was a heavy duvet, and it was much too warm. The food was excellent, and we will be back for more. Recommended.
A really nice hotel with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the meal served in the restaurant was top quality. Will definitely stay again.
enjoyed a one night stay here. had emailed to request a bottle of bubbly in our room as was celebrating an anniversary and the lovely laura had this all set up for me and included a very nice card and chocolates too, how nice! the bar is lovely, food is great and restaurant fantastic...our waitress also wished us a happy anniversary at dinner which was such a nice touch. all the staff were extremely friendly which made the stay even better! will 100% be back for another stay!
Absolutely fantastic hotel!! The staff could not have been any nicer - we arrived at 12:30 and were able to check in not a problem. We went to the treatment rooms and the facials were the best facials we have ever had!! we also had dinner here and again the staff were amazing!! we didn't know what to expec going to Tulfarris but we will 100% be back!
We were very pleased with our stay at Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort recently. The Reception we received from Roisin was excellent, our room was very comfortable and the food was first class. We both very much enjoyed our stay. We also played golf and found the course in great shape and the greens were excellent for the time of year. We hope to pay a return visit in the New Year. Star Rating 5 out of 5.
Room and facilities excellent. Meals were also very good. Staff very helpful. Location beautiful. Well recommended
Had a brilliant night at Tulfarris. Staff were excellent food was excellent. Will definitely recommend and will be back again.
enjoyable stay , great host in restaurant, breakfast lovely especially for a buffet.
Excellent hotel with super staff I would highly recommend
The hotel is in a lovely location and has some beautiful features. The staff were friendly and the food in the dining room at dinner was excellent. The breakfast buffet was disappointing and a number of items that were listed as included on the breakfast buffet menu were actually not available. I have several issues with the room and how it was serviced: 1) There was no hairdryer in the room and I had to make two requests before one was provided; 2) The shower hose was damaged with the result that there was almost no water coming through the shower head. I reported it and a new hose was provided and the shower worked much better. However the hose was made of cheap plastic and constantly twisted and smelled terrible; 3) After the first night of our stay, we left the hotel at 10:30am and made sure to put up the sign on the door to say that the room could be serviced. However, when we returned after 5:00pm the room had still not been cleaned. I reported it and someone came to clean the room within 15 minutes, however they only provided one hand towel instead of two, so I had to request an additional one; 4) The sound-proofing in the rooms is quite poor. We could hear people in the bathroom and the toilet flushing as well as conversations from other rooms. I believe that some of these issues could be resolved with additional staff training and supervision and checking rooms every day to ensure that they are up to standard before guests arrive.
very happy with our family stay room very spacious -much bigger than average and included 2 tvs -one iin a living area off sleeping are grounds ,around golf course excellent for walks well maintained our kids loved it food four star standard -we were happy with both breakfast and evening meals staff were pleasant and helpful value we were happy with the value of our stay and will stay again if getting similar value
A fantastic stay from start to finish. The location is beautiful. Hotel room was lovely, big and comfortable. Excellent food, with great views from the dining room. Friendly staff. Will definitely re-visit.
Beautiful hotel in a peaceful, idyllic setting. Food was excellent, served in the restaurant on the first floor overlooking the golf course. All was wonderful, but the best thing about this hotel is it's staff. The typical hotel from the book type reception was there, which shows professionalism, but I found the staff here took it beyond that and were genuine and friendly and so helpful. Very enjoyable stay and a huge bargain at the price. Lost a star only as we were travelling with a 6 year old and there is no swimming pool or playground on site, which would have helped to keep him occupied. Ample space to run around outside and take walks though and lots in the area to see.
Perfect in every way. Lovely friendly attentive staff. rooms are v special , with big double shower. Quiet calm surroundings. Lovely walk to the lake and back. Bar staff v attentive. Food is the very best.
Beautiful hotel, stunning location views go on forever.hotel rooms were really big and stylish. Food was amazing and staff were very friendly. The spa is worth a visit to. Definitely be back.
We stayed on a Saturday night when the hotel was fairly busy. The staff were very courteous and friendly from the moment we arrived until our departure at noon on Sunday. We had a delicious meal on Staurady evening in the Lime Tree restaurant, one of the best meals we have ever had. Unfortunately the weather was not good so we did not have any opportunity to venture out. Our room was lovely, no complaints.
Offered an upgrade to the first room by the reception which was a suite. Rather a small bed for a suite. I could hear the hand drying machine from the gents right next door and there seemed always to be a stench of smoking outside the door. Noisy too in that room with drunken singing at 2.30 am and again at 4.30 am. Could hear voices coming from the reception area all the time. Not really then an upgrade-au contraire. The included dinner was ok but annoying that was shown the dessert menu and chose a main and dessert as a result only to be offered a different dessert menu when the time came with none of the same choices. A somewhat dull breakfast with limited choice. Not too bad for Ireland but not great either.
Most friendly and helpful receptionist ever, so lovely and great first impression of hotel. Everything about the hotel was exceptional, and I don't give praise lightly. It was clean, stylish, roomy with excellent service in both bar and the restaurant where we had dinner. Food was beyond good and service in both places attentive and efficient. Also thank you for the extra drink to celebrate my partners birthday, nice touch. Room itself was well equipped and comfortable with a nice view. I could go on but suffice it to say I was very pleased with my stay, and although short and sweet this time, I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future.
Stayed recently for one night. Got a great rate which included two course evening meal as well as breakfast. The hotel is fantastic,great views across golf course. We were upgraded to a suite which consisted of a large separate living area as well as bedroom and bathroom. The rooms were large,extremely clean and had everything we needed. The staff at check in and around the hotel were exceptionally courteous and helpful. the evening meal in the Lime Tree restaurant was fantastic as was buffet breakfast next morning. I would certainly return to this excellent hotel and would have no hesitation recommending it to friends etc.
This was a lovely hotel in a really beautiful area. The bar was really nice and cosy and the restaurant was lovely also. The staff we're all really professional and friendly and very attentive. The hotel itself was a normal hotel I guess, nothing too fancy. The manor house looked lovely and I've seen photos from weddings there and it looks beautiful when decorated.
WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY. WE LOVED THE LARGE CLEAN BEDROOM AND BATHROOM, THE RESTAURANT VIEWS OF THE GOLF COURSE AND THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT . WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND THE HOTEL TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND WE WILL VISIT AGAIN.
We had a very enjoyable stay at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the Limetree restaurant - food was excellent with a fabulous view of the golf course. We'll be returning for another break. Only problem we had was finding the hotel. Signposting was very poor and we had to stop twice for directions. Olivia
I can't fault this establishment. Free upgrade to suite which was huge, spotless and well equipped. Food was fabulous as were the surroundings and all the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. We'll be back again.
Had a lovely relaxing night away on Friday 1st April. Nice hotel and very pleasant staff.
What a Fab hotel, my daughter and myself stayed for 1 night at this hotel and all I can say from the moment we arrived till we left the service was excellent. The surrounding grounds are beautiful even though we did not get a chance to explore very far due to heavy rain. The Lime Tree restaurant was lovely and the food was beautifully presented and of a high quality and the staff could not do enough for you. The bar had a singer on that night (Friday) which was really enjoyable. We were staying in room 225 which was a suite with a double/single bed and open another door and you had your own sitting room and kitchen and if that was not enough a large balcony overlooking the Golf course. So looking forward to coming back to stay in Tulfarris Hotel and hopefully we will have better weather next time. Thank you Lidl Breaks for such a fantastic deal.
Excellent all round - great friendly staff, good facilities, nice size family room, great walks around estate, good food and nice price.
Lovely stay. Peaceful surrounding and good food. Staff very friendly and helpful.
The hotel itself is in a lovely quiet location. The staff are fantastic and and eager to please. We found the lunch and dinner menu very limited. I had an breakfast sandwich for lunch which consisted of one sausage cut into slivers and one piece of bacon (you cannot order just a plain sandwich of your choice if it's not on the menu). The lunch menu is very poor if you just want a sandwich. Dinner was a bit of an ordeal as there was only one chicken dish and one beef dish, if you like fish both lunch and the dinner menu is fantastic. I had the beef medallion which I asked to be cooked well done it was cooked so much it was like rubber and covered in pepper sauce(the resturant manger took our drinks and desert off the bill), my husband had the chicken no complaints from him he really enjoyed it. We found the bed to be a little small and the matress very hard. The room itself was lovely but it was let down by the pillows and duvet that felt cheap. The bathroom was very clean and decorated in great taste. Breakfast is self service which I don't like especially I a 4* hotel. We cannot praise the staff enough they where we'll mannered and polite. I don't think we would stay there again as the menus are very limited and we like to enjoy a wide range of food and the bed very hard .
We got a fabulous room on arrival, we didn't ask for an upgrade but when we checked in we had a suite!!! Meal in the restaurant was lovely, great atmosphere in the bar afterwards
From the moment of arrival we were made feel so welcome. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite in the Manor House. It was sumptuous and so comfortable. It was such a welcome surprise when we walked into the house and then suite that we thought it alone would make our stay special but actually it was the staff that made the stay special. From reception to bar to restaurant everyone was so pleasant(and not in a "its our job" fashion but were genuinely engaging and ensured all guests were made feel special) and accommodating. We like to getaway to different places for short breaks but have a feeling we will be returning to Tulfarris very soon. Was only 1 night stay but felt like we were there for longer as every minute was such an enjoyable and memorable one. Fantastic hotel and Manor house but would be nothing without such great people working there. Thanks Frank and Grainne McCann
Excellent location, accommodation, service and food... Lovely break....
Lovely Hotel in a very peaceful and beautiful setting
Had a most enjoyable girls night recently. We were allocated an Extremely comfortable room accommodating the three of us. Our fabulous dinner with excellent service corresponded well with its poetic description! We sat for ages chatting in the bar and next time hopefully we will book the armchairs at the roaring open fire in the lobby. Breakfast was lovely and leisurely with super views towards the lakes where we went for a stroll later. It may have only been for the one night but we certainly felt treated and revived. We will definitely be back. I also intend to return with my husband as we are both keen hill walkers and tulfarris is only a short spin to the mountains. Can't wait!
Excellent hotel. Friendly staff and the music on the Saturday night was of a high standard. Only shortcoming is that they do not have full TV sports package in bar(no Setanta or BT Sport) and also cannot change a station if the members bar watching a different programme. Service, hospitality and food top class.
Just wanted to say fabulous break this was and a great deal for the in laws. I was told from start to finish it was the most pleasant experience. We will all be sure to return. Major thanks to tulfarris hotel and the staff.
Had a lovely overnight stay with three friends. Rooms lovely, warm, clean, comfortable. Staff very friendly and efficient. Only negative comment is no fire place in bar which meant it was very cold in athmosphere and temperature. There was a lovely fire in lobby.
We only stayed 1 night, but it was a very pleasant stay. Excellent value. Didnâ€™t get a chance to explore, but the grounds looked fabulous. Meal menu didnâ€™t look to be great at first but the food turned out well presented and very tasty and no problem finishing it. No problem recommending this Hotel.
Fab hotel, in a stunning setting. Lovely rooms, great food. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a relaxing break.
I can't decide what I preferred the most about our stay. There is the beautiful grounds with views of the lake, the welcoming feel you get once you step inside the hotel, the contemporary bar with views of the golf course, the spacious suite which we had the pleasure of being upgraded to, and the exceptional food in the Lime Tree Restaurant. My only regret is we didn't stay longer
Absolutely the best value for money. Could not believe the quality of the food and rooms. The service was top class. We got up graded to a deluxe suite... The Tulfarris hotel was amazing .. Teresa Gilman
Beautiful setting, lovely room, friendly staff, great food and a real fire in the lounge all made for a perfect break!
We stayed at Tulfarris last June and were upgraded to the Manor House which was lovely. As a consequence I gifted my parents an overnight stay and dinnner for their birthday. They were also upgraded and when they arrived for dinner they were given a glass of Prosecco. At the end of dinner the staff presented them with a desert and candle and sang 'Happy Birthday'. Well done Tulfarris and thank you
Excellent, free upgrade to a suite, good food, friendly staff. Really enjoyed our stay
Setting beautiful, rooms perfect and staff very helpful and friendly. Food ok. Will be back. Spa treatment amazing value snd so relaxing!
Absolutely great hotel. Couldn't fault anything. Can't wait to go back again. Staff and service excellent.
Fab!!!! Beautiful location, beautiful room and hotel!! Gorgeous views
Enjoyed our stay in this beautiful hotel. Everything was top class. Hope to visit again in the near future.
We really enjoyed our sray. Our dinner was beautiful. The staff were very friendlt and helpful. Ivwiyld highly recommend this hotel.
Dear Tulfarris , We stayed with you last week and we had an absolute ball .The location of the hotel and views are amazing and the atmosphere was very chilled .I think the biggest bonus to the Tulfarris was that the staff were very helpful ,accommodating and reliable ,so if we were to run our own staff member of the month it would go to a tie between Kevin in the bar and Aishling at reception , thanks for looking after us .
Nice hotel,pleasant staff.Good food.Great Golf Course and nice walks.30 minutes away from Various Race tracks No Leisure facilkities.Close to Kildare shopping centre which is a treat.Overall very good.
Can't recomend highly enough. Location - wonderful. Grounds - beautiful. Staff - extremely helpfuly, professional and polite. Food - excellent and filling. Local attractions - we spent a day at Russborough House I would recomend it. We will be back to Tulfarris in the not to distant future.
Had a lovely 2 night B&B and 1 dinner break recently. Excellent value for money. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist and allocated a large suite overlooking the garden. The dinner was delicious as was the breakfast. Rarely do I get my poached eggs perfect (whites cooked and yoke runny) but these were perfect. The staff in the restaurant and bar were extremely pleasant and helpful. Only downside is you have a 10 minute drive to the nearest town but if you want beautiful walks and a game of golf this is the place to go.
amazing place,food lovely and staff so nice defo be back soon
As a family of 2 adults and 2 year old twins, we had a really great stay at this hotel and at a fantastic rate that included our dinner that evening. The family room was huge with a kitchen area that included a fridge, microwave and sink which was such an added bonus for us. The two travel cots we had requested were set up and ready for us on our arrival and the staff at this hotel were very professional and helpful with every aspect of our stay A big thank you to Esme on the telephone when making the booking to Aisling at Reception on our arrival and all the staff at the Lime Tree restaurant who made the family feel so welcome. The food that evening was really lovely with a delicious 'Green Bale' dish on their menu for us veggies! Breakfast was lovely also. The 37 km drive from Dublin city is not long at all but you still feel you are a very much away from it all. The setting is so picturesque and the next morning we walked around one of the nearly lakes which was great. Even when our boys watched excitedly from the hotel's children's playground at the greenkeepers busy at work on their various machines, the greenkeepers still had time to wave at our boys and make their day! A stop off at nearby Russborough House on our way home was just great also. A big thank you to Caithriona in the Beauty Room who does a fab facial and massage deal at a really reasonable price which I really enjoyed and appreciated. Great hotel and a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
Room was big. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom fine. Bath was appreciated. Towels very small. No radio. We asked at desk did the TV tune into the radio stations. We were told no. Dining room good location. Staff excellent. Roast beef tough. Was replaced by chicken. Pistachio ice cream delicious. Breakfast adequate. Pancakes would have been appreciated. Not enough staff on breakfast. They were run off their feet. Long wait for tea / coffee. Coffee not good quality. Grounds very nice.
Friendly staff in all areas, lovely location and nice food. Upgraded room is much better, Could do with some attention to detail but I guess that is limited if funding is not there. Really enjoyed our stay, great value deal on TodayFM breaks
By Lorraine on 10th March 2015. My sister and I stayed in Tulfarris for a one night break. We were delighted with the hotel and the large suite room that they allocated for our stay. The staff from reception to the restaurant were friendly, helpful and efficient. A special note of thanks to Sean in the restaurant who looked after us and served us a lovely evening dinner, which we both enjoyed immensely. We are both looking forward to returning again soon in the near future, for another relaxing break in Tulfarris.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 24 hour dinner, bed and breakfast break at Tulfarris. The hotel was toasty cosy on a cold February afternoon with a blazing open fire in the lobby to welcome us. All the staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful, but particularly the chap (apologies, I didn't get his name!) who served us in the restaurant on Saturday evening who was extremely pleasant and helpful. Our room and bathroom were spotless and spacious and all public areas were clean, fresh and bright. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tulfarris in beautiful Wicklow countryside for a quick escape from the city.
Stayed here Feb 13th and had a most enjoyable evening. We had a lovely, spacious double room with a balcony and a very large bathroom. Beautifully decorated. The Restaurant Manager was most accommodating when I foolishly forgot to book dinner but he managed to secure a table for us despite the hotel being very busy. Lovely dining room with high ceilings, attentive staff and it felt like I was in a restaurant in town rather than a hotel. I could not fault the food and we had so many delicious options to choose from. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay as it was most relaxing. My only complaint was that I thought there could be more food on offer for breakfast. There were no nuts, cereal, porridge, range of breads so breakfast was a little disappointing after the great meal we had the night before. The grounds are wonderful to walk around. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I have!
My sister and I recently stayed at Tulfarris Hotel, we were most impressed with the hotel. The staff, from reception to restaurant were friendly, helpful and efficient. The breakfast and evening meal were excellent, we are both looking forward to returning again in the near future.
What a find--a beautiful location, friendly and efficient staff and great accommodations and restaurant--a perfect combination for a perfect ending for our visit to Ireland. The heated floor of the bathroom was very welcome on late night visits to the potty and the view of the golf course from both the restaurant and bar was to die for! We highly recommend the B&B plus two course meal--great value and super in presentation and taste. We got to watch our first Gaelic football game--the All-Ireland Final between Donegal and Killarney and since we had traveled through regions during our trip it was really fun to learn the rules from a young couple seated nearby and enjoy true non-stop action--much different from the American football that we are used to. This location is highly recommended by us and we hope to be able to visit it again in the near future.
Great hotel for a short break. Beautiful location just outside Blessington. Bedroom was spacious and bright. The Bathroom was a not great, more like a wet room, not very romantic for a couple. We dined in the Lime Tree restaurant overlooking the golf course. Food was really good, I'd highly recommend it. Service was excellent and staff were really nice and friendly. Ordered breakfast to the room and it was equally as good, one of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had. Might be a bit boring for non-golfers.
This was a really enjoyable break. We had a great experience and would return again without hesitation.
Tulfarris was gorgeous for a break away - the staff were so good and accomodating. Il definatly return.
Most enjoyable 2 night stay amidst breathtaking scenery. Staff so pleasant and helpful, food fab and most beautiful country house hotel Will definitely return in 2015 to take in more of the beautiful surrounding area. Margaret
Stayed at Tulfarris Hotel for 2 night break in mid July. All in all a very nice hotel with very welcoming staff and comfortable rooms , breakfast was nice with a good enough choice . The facilities were limited except of course the golf course which looked very well kept . The beauty rooms seemed a separate facility to the hotel and had to ring a number to arrange a booking which was a bit unusual i thought . A bit remote and the nearest shopping area was Blessington Village about a ten minute drive . An ideal place to just relax and get away from it all , although would rate it to be a very good 3 star Hotel and not a 4 star in my opinion due to lack of facilities and rooms in need of a bit of a makeover !
Stayed at Tulfarris for two nights (incl dinner on one night) with my husband and our two children. Overall we feel we got very good value for money. We were allocated a suite which was a nice surprise and meant we had ample space. Our room was very clean and well equipped with all conveniences.Dinner in the Lime Tree restaurant was very good and the young waitresses were very pleasant and generous bringing the children extra bread and drinks. We ate in the bar also and service was very fast and the food was good value and very tasty, however the barman wasn't very engaging or welcoming. Tulfarris is just a short drive from Blessington and there is so much to see and do in the area incl. the fabulous Rusborough House. Overall, Tulfarris Hse provides a very relaxing stay away from all things commercial. It seems to be very popular with golfers. Some aspects of the hotel would benefit from a bit of attention, eg the children's playground and the flower beds outside it and clean all the windows to enhance the fabulous views. But they are just minor points in what was a very nice stay.
Recommend eating in the restaurant. Beautiful panoramic view over golf club
Our second time staying at Tulfarris this year and once again a positive experience. There were no double rooms available on Lidl Breaks so I contacted the hotel directly and they changed the twin to a double without hesitation or penalty. They did the same the last occasion we stayed. The bathroom was a shower in bath set-up. I preferred just the shower option like we had last time because the bedroom was far more spacious and the bed was bigger and more comfortable. We went for the dinner b&b option which is great value. The evening meal was excellent. The staff were friendly and professional. The breakfast is an â€œeat all you wantâ€? buffet affair. The food however was not sufficiently hot as it is left stewing endlessly in the various stainless containers on tables and these containers are not heated properly. A breakfast has to be piping hot to be enjoyed, not lukewarm or cold. But you can keep an eye on proceedings and when they refill these receptacles you can swoop for your delicious hot grub. Whoever designed the bar should be shot. This is the least attractive part of the hotel and with no boozers nearby you have no choice if you fancy a few jars. The bar is a large, dour, low ceiling hall-like room with dreadful acoustics, no atmosphere and completely inadequate seating. It needs to be refurbished urgently by someone enlightened and with some degree of imagination and class. The walks on the golf course, although permitted, are short and awkward with people firing golf balls all over the place. The walks outside the hotel grounds are far more enjoyable and extensive and safer. All the details are in your welcome pack in the rooms which reminds me, there was no welcome pack in our room this time. Never mind, I would still recommend Tulfarris for a short break or weekend away.
Lovely rooms and a lovely place where you can walk around the lakes. Would stay again.
Great place for a quiet break, lovely walks and beautiful scenery. The hotel is very nice and welcoming and friendly staff. We really enjoyed our time there.
What a fantastic hotel beautifully located overlooking the lakes and mountains. - great value .The staff were very efficient helpful and friendly. We hope to stay there again over the summer.
Great, relaxing stay. We had a family suite . My five year old daughter loved every minute of it. Beautifull location. Very friendly staff.
we stayed here for one night on the 20th April, absolutely no complaints.The room was lovely as was the food. But the service was excellent especially like to mention a guy called Stephen who served us in the bar after we arrived really nice helpful young man excellent at his job.
Beautiful grounds, friendly staff, excellent food & spacious, comfortable room. Really nice stay!
Had a lovely overnight stay in this hotel, The room was nice, clean, very comfortable bed. The staff were very nice, and the food was very good also, the bar is nice and they had some live music which was also very good. nice views from the restaurant of the golf course and lakes. Would stay here again and very good value with the Lidl deal
Excellent hotel. Staff were helpful and friendly. Location was beautiful. Room was very spacious and clean. Dinner and breakfast in restaurant was lovely as well. Had a great, relaxing stay. Will definitely come back and will recommend to friends.
Had a lovely break here over Christmas. Beautiful location, super food and very very friendly staff. Very happy all round-would have no hesitation in recommending it!
Very friendly and efficient staff from reception through to bar and restaurant staff. Warm comfortable atmosphere with top quality accommodation and dining. Would highly recommend Tulfarris for a relaxing break, beautiful setting and walks, central to many tourist attractions in Wicklow and beyond.
I was very impressed with the very beautiful location. The hotel has a lovely ambiance. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast. While the room itself was clean I was a bit disappointed in the bathroom, the toilet I felt could have been cleaner and the drain in the shower was poor. I mention this when checking out and was given a reduction so that was good. I will go back again.
Room was excellent, resturant has lovely views over golf course and food was very good. A touch of class for affordable cost.
Absolutely brilliant,a real getaway,staff were friendly and helpful the accomodation was superb and the food was fabulous,we would definitely go back. a real hidden gem
Very nice relaxing stay. Rooms very spacious and clean, food in Lime Tree restaurant was lovely, gorgeous views from all areas of the hotel and exceptional service from all members of staff. Can't wait to go back!
Excellent value for money for this prestigious venue, would visit again .. Jim
As a restaurant manager i will be fair in my rating this hotel. Reception are very professional and helpfully. Room are very clean and spacious for our need, special we had a baby with us. Food is good in the restaurant as well in the bar.Staff are very professional and helpful specialty one lady she serve the breakfast. The service in the f&b is excellent. Golf is ok only 9 holes are open to the public the day I was playing. Over all good hotel and very relaxing I will recomend it.
Excellent hotel, thoroughly enjoyed a short one night stay here. The hotel is located in a beautiful setting overlooking the lake. Great music and fun in the bar on a Wednesday night. Will definitely return.
Excellent hotel. Friendly and courteous staff and excellent food. Really surpassed our expectations and we were upgraded to a suite without even asking. We will definitely return.
excellent hotel. will definitely go back. food , hotel, golf course, staff were all excellent
fantastic hotel lovely staff and spacious rooms. contemporary rooms, beautiful dÃ©cor. nice and calm holiday by the lakes. just a shame this hotel does not have swimming pool my kids would have loved that, but we knew that before booking anyway.
Tranquil settings, very pleasant staff. Food lovely. Would go again.
Lovely place, staff generally friendly and helpful-our first night wasn't great as we were beside the ladies toilets and could here the doors and hand dryers and the music from the gig in the bar echoed into our room. Second night after we were moved was much more pleasant. It could do we more things for kids, it relies on the playground and that's it.
Very comfortable, great food and exceptional service.
Stayed in Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort for 2 nights in June. On arrival we were give a beautiful Suite with private balcony, everything was spotlessly clean. Had a lovely meal in Elk Bar. Breakfast was excellent Staff very helpful, lovely Turf fire . Would definitely recommend it, Bed very comfortable 5/5
we had a grate stay. golf was fab to not to mention food.
Stayed in Tulfarris 28th of May 2013 - fab, fab, fab! Staff were very friendly and helpful - room was luxurious and spotless and food was great, can't wait to return
Or stay was super hotel very well maintained staff very helpful and friendly suite was great food was just beautiful and presented beautifully .We couldnt have wished for better relaxed atmosphere . Golf great lost a few balls in the lakes but found a few also we highly recommend it..
We would not have seen the hotel's grounds at their best at the end of a prolonged winter and delayed spring but the setting was wonderful all the same, really impressive. We don't play golf but had we done so we reckon the views and setting rival that at Carlingford, Mountains and water everywhere. This peaceful hotel, staffed by helpful, and genuinely kindly staff, is really worth a visit. Do not be put off by the golf connection, if like us, you don't play. As a base to explore the Wicklow Mountains, or just for local walks along the lakes virtually from your room, it is hard to beat. I was recovering from a broken leg, the manager brought in our bags. As we left the following lunchtime, there was a turf fire burning in reception. Almost better than home. We dined in the Lime Tree Restaurant. Funny name, as no lime trees in sight, but food was superb, and service attentive without being obtrusive. If I were to be critical, it would be that at breakfast time in daylight the restaurant ceiling seemed too high, and for someone on crutches the vehicle access to reception seemed a bit too far, unless one had one's eye on the next para-olympics, but I blame the architects for that, not the staff who made our stay such a pleasure.
The hotel is well sign-posted and therefore easy to find; the rooms were lovely & spacious, clean & comfortable.All the hotel staff were helpful & courteous. Our young son was ill at a family get-together and the staff in the restaurant were very accommodating about carrying our meals to the room instead. It's perfectly geared for a relaxing getaway with no stress.
Beautiful location, great bar food, fresh breakfast and great value for money, Bring your clubs!
i love tulfarris. its a nice break without been too far from dublin. and the food was excellant even if some mains had supplement. allow for that but resonable enough. hotel itself is spotless and well maintained. I've been a few times and never disappointed.
Lovely hotel and delicious food. Enjoyed my visit and will go there again.
Review by Lorraine on 06.02.2013 Stayed in Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort last weekend. This was my second time to visit, and it did not disappoint. The bedroom allocated was fine and big. The bed was very comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. I eat in the restaurant, and enjoyed the food. The service was very good. Enjoyed sitting around the open fire having a chat with my friend. Breakfast was very good, and a good selection of foods from the buffet. Would definitely visit again this year.
Excellent hotel, very friendly staff and lovely food. We very much enjoyed our stay
We had a very enjoyable stay at Tulfarris. The staff are excellent. The food was to die for and the overall experience was delightful .. Noelle Byrne
Absolutely perfect for a relaxing retreat away from hectic everyday life! We stayed for one night but definitely would have stayed longer if we had been free to! It was a rainy couple of days so it didn't do the 'look' of the hotel any justice but inside is really gorgeous - modern, yet extremely cosy and welcoming. I couldn't speak highly enough of the staff who were all absolutely ovely, friendly and very polite and mannerly.The room was huge, spotless and very comfortable. In the evening we opted for bar food rather than the main restaurant, and that was also gorgeous and we were served very quickly too! The bar area is extremely cosy, relaxing and the chilled out atmosphere was ideal for us! Breakfast in the main restaurant was gorgeous and the view was incredible - well worth what we paid and more - I'll definitely, definitely be back!!
Tulfarris Hotel is a beautiful hotel over looking the Blessington Lakes. our stay there was excellent in all aspects. location, staff, room, food both breakfast and evening meal, and the entertainment in the bar. well worth a visit.
I love this hotel. The decor is gorgeous, the staff were very friendly, the food was perfect and all-in-all I really enjoyed my stay and found it very relaxing. The one gripe I had was that there was no hot water before breakfast on either morning of my stay.
Stayed in the hotel for one night in November with some girlfriends, had a great time. Staff were really friendly and helpfull. Lovely setting, would definatly recommend this hotel. Was also at a wedding here 2 years ago and it was fantastic location for a wedding. Could be better signposted from Blessington as we had to guess the way based on being there before. Didn't see any signs at all
Staff very helpful, polite and friendly, Childrens menu one of the best I have come accross. 3 Courses (Soup/bread, main menu, decent bowl of ice cream, plenty of cordial). Family friendly. Good bar, cpmfortabel rooms. V Satisfied.
Excellent Value, very pleasant staff
Hi to ALL the staff at Tulfarris. I had a recent stay with you and it was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble, all our requests were met by really competent and professional staff in all areas of the hotel. I was very stressed and was looking for a hotel that was away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life where I could unwind , relax and totally chill out and it was so good, we booked an extra night. The rooms were very comfortable, the food was delicious and the view from the dinning room was stunning. Thank you to you all for a most enjoyable stay and I will certainly be back. Celine Broughan Lucan
Could fault this hotel. Beautiful views, upgraded us to a suite, staff were very friendly, food was top class and breakfast was fantastic. Highly reccomend
Really enjoyed the hotel - Family room was great and spacious, kids loved it. Chicken Wings in main bar are fab. Only gripe is the 'discounted' rate in the Avon Ri Pool . 20 quid for 1 adult and 2 kids
Fabulous hotel, beautiful location overlooking the lakes and close to Blessington. Food was really good and we really enjoyed our stay there. Would definitely recommend it and would return in the morning.
Lovely hotel and food as well. Very good value overall for the break and perfectly situated on the lake. Staff was very welcoming and professional too. Rooms were spacious. Only complaint was the heat in the rooms at night. I dont think that the heating could be turned off.
My stay was pleasant enough it is not 4 star quality. I had constant problems with the door lock having to go back to reception lots of time to have it released. Also there was no fresh fruit available at breakfast. Having said that my room was spacious and very clean and the staff were very helpfull. Thank you Mary Galway
What a great hotel! The staff are simply amazing, food superb and beautiful surroundings. Neither myself nor my husband play golf but there are beautiful walkways on the grounds and surrounding area. Great for a relaxing break away and excellent value for money. We did the 2 nights b&b + 1dinner deal for â‚¬179. Would highly recommend!
Remote location suitable for some total down-time. Staff are fabulous and very helpful- nothing is too much trouble. Spectacular scenery. Rooms are large and clean. Food is fine but has no 'wow' factor. Welcoming turf fire in reception and a very comfortable bar to unwind in.
Beautiful hotel relaxing and comfortable. Excellent food and very helpful staff. Highly recommended
Tulfarris Hotel, Nice place to visit ,Beautiful view of the lakes and if you wish to have a game of golf or have a nice walk in the country side good for young and older people Staff very nice and friendly,room very clean we will go back later this year.By the way the food is really nice good choices,for dinner and breakfast.
Fantastic get away for couples, to me would not be an ideal setting for children. Food was absolutely scrumptious in The Lime Tree and also in the bar... the kids portion size in the bar was huge and the price was good too! Nice relaxing atmosphere in the bar area although i don't think this is a 4 star as there was some things in the room that were either very worn or needed to be fixed up properly, example shower tiles not filled properly and the duvets bedding very worn, and also when we booked in right out side our door was a burned mattress and duvet. Not a very 4 star welcome. But in all was a nice stay and the Staff were so friendly and welcoming could not fault them in any way.... Had a great night with my partner we loved the food, so in all a very nice friendly stay.
Excellent location beside the lake. Nice and quiet away from the town of Blessington but very close to drive to. We were given a Suite probably because we stayed mid-week. it was very nice. The biggest hotel room I've ever stayed in. The bedroom and bathroom were as big as any room you'd get in another hotel and then beside it was the kitchenette and living area. The food in the restaurant was excellent, but the servings for the main courses are a tad small. Starters and desserts also were lovely and normal size. The bar was nice but we didn't spend any time in it other than to order drinks which we had in our room. We don't play golf but the course looked excellent and we went for walks around it. The edge of the course is right beside the lake which makes for lovely views. The hotel is very close to the N81 but also all other regional routes in Wicklow for sightseeing and we found it easy to find. overall we'd recommend it as a nice destination for a quiet break and if you play golf, all the better.
They were very welcoming but i found the hotel was a a little run down ,the food was good(not great) but the staff were superb,and the setting is fantastic. i would visit again
Lovely Hotel, Very friendly staff. Food was excellent. Would stay there again.
Thanks for a lovely time, the hotel is fabulous, very beautiful room and very friendly staff. We'll be back again soon I hope !! 5 stars :D
The hotel is gorgeous, the room was spacious and just perfect. Food was lovely and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. There was music in the bar on Friday night which gave a nice buzz to the place., the grounds were lovely to walk around. I would love to go back.
Stayed in Tulfarris Hotel for one night with my sister. Beautiful hotel, stunning location. Room very comfortable, clean and spacious. We loved the turf fire in the lobby a great draw for us as the weather was cold outside. We had dinner in the Lime restaurant, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Service very good and attentive in the restaurant. Would have loved to have a walk in the lovely grounds but weather not good. Felt it was like a home from home. Did not want to leave, and cant wait to go back there.
The hotel itself was fabulous, beautiful rooms, grounds and location. the food was lovely, service was good. The only fault I would have was that there were no Sunday morning papers available ( we were up at 8:30am) and when we asked no excuses or apologies were made.
Both myself and my husband totally enjoyed our stay. Beautiful location, friendly staff and room was gorgeous. We were delighted to find that we were upgraded to a suite for no extra cost. Food in Lime tree restaurant was good, not marvelous and portion probably not large enough. Would eat in bar next time as others we spoke to said food was great there. Recommend highly, can't wait to go back!
Stayed in Tulfarris for just one night. It was thoroughly enjoyable. The views are amazing and so were the walks around the grounds of the hotel. Staff were lovely and helpful. Room was spacious and very clean. Dinner was lovely. Went for a lovely walk before breakfast, everywhere was frosty and white, beautiful. The breakfast was delicious and plenty of it. Have not got a bad word to say, would definitely stay here again.
fantastic, from the bedroom to the food to the staff. will be returning.
Well maintained hotel in beautiful setting. As previous reviewers have said it's a pity that it does not have a leisure centre/swimming pool. Availed of B&B + Dinner deal: restaurant manageress insisted on charging us for coffee even after I pointed out to her that teas/coffees are included in the deal.
Superb , friendly staff, excellent food, beautiful location. 5 star.
Lovely hotel - pity it didnt have a pool for children .
my wife and my two girls aged five and eleven stayed here for the easter weekend we found the place very nice the staff were very friendly the food in the restaurant was beautiful the rooms were spotless and the beds were very comfortable plenty of sight seeing if it had a swiming pool it would be a five star overall we had a great stay
Joan from We!xford!! Our Lidl Break in Tulfarris was Ace!!! Hotel in beautiful Tranquil setting! Staff and food excellent!! Enjoyed peaceful evening long walk on Golf Course when Golfers finished playing. Looking forward to returning to Tulfarris real soon!!! I highly recommend Lidl Break in Tulfarris and guarantee satisfaction!!
Lidl breaks excellent value for money & well organized. Will use this site again Claire Co kildare
Myself, hubby & daughter stayed 1 night for a quick break. We arrived early & were delighted to get access to our room early even though check in was a few hrs away. On entering our room, we were pleasantly surprised to find we were given a suite which was a bonus. My daughter was delighted to get her own room! Rooms views were of golf course & lake. We found staff friendly & helpful. We ate in hotel, lunch nice. Dinner was lovely but only criticism would be that courses were served very fast and we felt it was all abit rushed. We will be back again. Many thanks to hotel staff. Claire, co Kildare
My husband and I and another couple stayed here on the one night break including dinner. The room was lovely and a decent size although the corridors could probably do with a lick of paint! There was a great choice with dinner and the food was mouth watering and the staff very attentive and friendly. We had a few drinks in the bar after, where there's a lovely open fire. There was guy singing who was really good but a bit loud! The girl on reception was lovely too. All in all a lovely break and great value.
Excellent value for money. The hotel and rooms are lovely really spacious and the food was really good too.Would def book this again!
Really loved Tulfarris hotel, myself and my girlfriend stayed last weekend and had a lovely time. I was abit apprehensive about the food because I read some unkind reports but to say it was gorgeous would be unjust!! Lovely place and would gladly return again
Great value for money, friendly helpful staff, amazing room (actually it turned out to be a suite!), beautiful food. Never made feel like we were on a "budget break" which we have been made feel in other hotels- staff were superb.
I have to say I found the stay at Tulfarris fantastic! The staff were exceptionally nice, the rooms were beautiful, the food was very tasty and the entertainment great fun! Unfortunately we picked the worst weekend weather-wise, although we did battle the elements and went for a stroll and the scenery was beautiful. I would strongly recommend a stay here. Thanks to all the staff for a great weekend.
Found the hotel to be really nice-room was execellent and very comfortable and we were upgraded to a suite for the second night which was really large. The lobby was heated by a lovely fire and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The one small gripe I ahd was that the bar food we had on our first night there was a bit mediocre. The weather was really awful the whole weekend we were there so we could not get out to do some walking but this was hardly the hotel's fault. Would be lovely place to stay in the summer. Good value for money all in all and would defeinitely re-visit.
We stayed for one nlght at the hotel which deserves 5 stars. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the room we were given was a suite which was fantastic so warm and comfy. The food in the restaurant was excellent and highly recommended. there is also a games room for childern which was a big hit with mine. Not my first Lidl break but our best so far, looking forward to going back again, thanks to Lidl breaks.
Lovely setting, very friendly and helpful staff, room nice and peaceful , and food in Lime Tree restaura nt excellent. Tom Moran
Very good value for what we got. We would stay again very soon.
nice hotel in a beautiful location,great golf course on site, all staff very friendly and i look forward to another visit
Tulfarris is a lovely destination the bedrooms are excellent and the staff all a pleasure to deal with. I would make two suggestions, 1. the 4 star status of the hotel is not borne out by the broken and worn out looking furniture on the terrace, this needs to be removed ASAP. and 2. the food was really only of 3 star standard, a scone served with tea in the afternoon had the spongy texture of an old one which had been microwaved back to life and later our meal in the Lime Tree restaurant was similar; loin of pork was so tough I could hardly cut it and Baileys cheesecake tasted nothing like Baileys. I would come again and give Tulfarris one more chance, as the setting is really peaceful and relaxing, but would expect a better standard of food.
Excellent facilities for family. Staff were very friendly and the food was also excellent. The grounds are beautiful and we intend to return again in the near future. The choice by Lidl Breaks to include Tulfarris as one of their designated venues is a very shrewd choice. Thank you
great break away and top class food!
Excellent hotel in all respects. We stayed six days on a "Lidl Breaks" offer and found our ground floor suite very confortable, staff welcoming and obliging and the situation of the hotel idyllic. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
We arrived on a Sunday and stayed for one night. The setting is quite nice but as it was raining we could not go for any of the walks. We had a suite which was lovely. We had a few drinks in the bar but were suprised to pay %u20AC1 for a dash of 7 up in Vodka we got which we thought was quite pricey. We had a meal later on in the evening which was lovely but there was not not enough of it. We were given garlic potatos which not everyone likes. The breakfast the following morning was fine. Overall we enjoyed our night there.
Fabulous stay. Really enjoyed it. Very relaxing. Just wished we could have stayed longer. Great value as the dinner, breakfast, staff were top. Phil & Martina
Just back from an over night stay at the Tulfarris hotel ,very large clean rooms, lovely food, great staff, great value.We really enjoyed our stay. Ideal to just chill out and relax. Shay and Theresa. Dublin
We stayed in Tulfarris in June. We had a very spacious bedroom with seperate sitting room and kitchen area. Lovely lunch in lounge. Beautiful view from lovely restaurant where we had dinner and breakfast, both meals were very good. Unfortunately there are no walks around the grounds. We had to walk across the golf course to get to edge of lake Excellernt value and we are looking fiorward to our next visit.

fab stay and great value for money, highly recommended
Enjoyed our stay in Tulfarris very much and will certainly return very soon.
food was excellent lovely hotel will visit again
just stayed one night there. the price represented fantastic value. a very picturesque setting with helpful and friendly staff. got breakfast in bed and it was both enormous and delicious. our only criticism was that the dinner wasn't at the level i'd expect from a four star restaurant. despite this, i wouldn't let it put me off going back to it, as mentioned for the price paid...the whole package was excellent value.
we had a great time at tulfarris the staff are so kind and helpful and are acredit to the hotel we have told all our family and friends about your lovely hotel and we will be back very soon any one looking for a great time won,t find one better than at tulfarris resort we highly rate this hotel many thanks for alovely time from the brophy family in tramore
Had a lovely 2 x night stay at this Hotel, very friendldy staff coupled with a very nice relaxed atmosphere
My husband and I spent one night in Tulfarris. It was a sneaky night away from our 14 month old baby. The hotel was lovely as were the staff who were very helpful. The restaurant was full, which was nice to see and the food was also very good. Over all we were delighted with everything and couldn't get over the value for money. Kept thinking that when it came to pay there would be extras which would bump up the price, which still would have been reasonable, however, it was as stated. All in all it was very pleasant, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to go back.
nice Hotel, very friendly and helpful staff!, lovely rooms, beautiful setting breakfast and dinner was ok, but nothing special
We found Tulfarris a beautiful hotel in a nice location right beside the lake. However, they don't seem to expect that their guests might want to go just for a walk without playing golf - we found ourselves walking across the golf court as there weren't any other walks to get to the lake. The room was superb, very elegantly furnished and very spacious. We thought the food was nice but definitely not 4 star - there's definitely room for improvement. All in all a great place if you're into golf, a nice place if you're not as there's not much else to do.
Beautiful hotel, I booked it for my husbands birthday and was by no means disappointed. We had a large room with separate kitchen and sitting room, the room was fabulous. we had a meal in the restaurant, both the food and service was top class with a stunning view across the golf course. There was also entertainment in the bar which we really enjoyed, altogether a great night only regret was that I didn't book two nights. The staff through out the hotel in all area's were lovely and very chatty too might I add which is always a plus.
Beautiful hotel, staff very friendly, bedroom lovely, food great. Staff very attentive in the dining room and elsewhere. We left behind a library book and reading glasses and they were posted to us the next day. Nothing was any trouble and we are delighted with the opportunity to recommend this hotel unreservedly. Thanks to all for a lovely stay, we'll be back!
We really enjoyed the tulfarris hotel Room was spacious with good view Food in resteraunt was superb with very attentive professional staff If I had one complaint it was the choice of food at breakfast was just adequate would expect better considering the restraunt food was so good the previous night
Beautiful hotel in a fantastic setting. The staff were so pleasant and polite. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the catering staff were extremely attentive and professional. An excellent break all round.
LARGE ROOM QUIET RELAXING LOVELY SURROUNDINGS AND BEAUTIFUL FOOD WOULD RECOMMEND
Would have been nice to have ironing facilities in the room, also some of the pipe work was very evident around the heaters.. there was no tea bags so on arrival had to ask for three things... do not want to seem negative it was a beautiful place and food was excellent just bit more attention to detail... Regards Liz...
It was great, good food, good weekend!
