Very good hotel and excellent leisure facilities provided. Overall a very enjoyable experience and room provided was quite adequate, equipped with power shower and coffee and tea making facilities. Breakfast was a bit 'hit and miss' however, with some of the cooked foods often tepid at best. The food in the restaurant was fine (perhaps a bit overpriced). Would return and recommend overall.

Great family run hotel. Staff make you feel at home on arrival, and nothing is too much bother. Makes a welcome change from chain hotels. Staff and owners seem to take great pride in making your stay as good as possible. Thank you for a lovely few days.

Excellent Hotel. Well maintained . Very friendly staff. Spent weekend in Hotel Woodstock on 2B&B + 1 evening meal offer. While the evening meal was excellent we did not have the same choice as form the "regular" or "bar menu". Five star rating all the same. Highly recommended

Nice, clean and friendly Hotel with good leisure facilities and very comfortable beds. Staff are very polite and always willing to assist. Only minor downside is the location. It wasn't much of an issue for us, but it is slightly away from the town of Ennis and might be an issue for some. Overall though we had a lovely short stay at Woodstock Hotel and would visit again.

We arrived at the hotel on Friday night to a blazing wood fire and the friendliest of reception staff, even allowing for the fact that they had an awards night in the bar. Our rooms were spacious and airy and in true Cork Fashion, we then headed to the bar, which was just great. the food was delivered with a smile and every staff member had time to have a few words. Then off to the room. Breakfast on Saturday was everything you could wish for and my coeliac fiends you will find that there is no problem at all. From Valerie in the Restaurant to Elaine & Sean the owners who checked to ensure that four Cork women did not get lost the weekend just flew and sure did they arrange to have the musician play the Cork National Anthem (what more could you ask for) Then it was time for us to depart. It is impossible to single out any one person but I have to mention , Rachel on the front desk when we arrived, Julianne who had the patience of a saint when we kept wiping our cards by putting them in with our mobile phones to the girls on the corridor charged with keeping the rooms clean. It would be hard to find fault with this hotel from any perspective. It was the perfect setting for our reunion. Will we be back again WITHOUT A DOUBT.

I will return again .

My wife, 2 pre-teen kids and I are just back from a very enjoyable 3-night stay at Hotel Woodstock. Staff: 5/5 From check-in to check-out the staff were warm, smiling, helpful and professional Room: 5/5 Our room was warm, comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. Food: 4/5 Breakfast was nothing special, but had all the components expected of a hotel of this quality. We did not eat in the restaurant, however the bar-food was pretty good. Leisure Center: 3/5 In the pool area, the pool itself was great, a nice temperature, clean, and had a nice relaxed atmosphere. The only let-down, and my only really negative comments for our whole stay, were the spa facilities. On the Friday afternoon, when we arrived, the hot-tub water looked, smelled, and tasted (eewww) dirty. (My son described it best, if a little overly graphic, when he said it was like "human juice"). Thankfully, for Saturday-through-Monday the water quality was a lot better. The steam-room was fine, 'though on the Monday morning I could sense a nice menthol aroma, which if it is always supposed to be there, was missing the previous days. The sauna...far too hot...and up to 20C hotter than the max the hotel staff stated it should be. I am a sauna fan...LOVE them...however, I was beyond disappointed at the temperature of the one here...which was only bearable if I left the door wide open (which I did!) When I mentioned to the staff, on Saturday, that the temperature seemed high (it literally hurt my lips and nostrils to breathe in), and asked what it should be set at, I was told "between 90C and 100C". I replied that the thermometer showed 115C, to which he responded that "someone must have turned it up", and he ostensibly turned the temp. dial down. The next afternoon, I tried the sauna again, and the thermometer dial showed 120C!!! When I mentioned it to that day's staff-member I was told "Aw, it's been like that since I started here, we can't control the temperature. Sometimes it's low, like 70C, sometimes high". Acceptable? Not to me In summary, the hotel was great, and we had a lovely long-weekend break...however, the leisure center let the overall rating down, and needs improvement fro this to really be a 4* hotel experience.

Had a lovely stay in the Woodstock Hotel. Staff were very helpful and made sure that our stay was an enjoyable one. Would definitely stay there again.

by sylvia on Jul 9 2017 22:14

excellent value for money. Only complaint is the bar which is set up as a restaurant in the evening with no seating except high bar stools for people who just want a drink.

by Brendan on Jul 2 2017 15:01

Excellent hotel. Large rooms, excellent food, friendly staff, very good leisure centre, convenient to town

by Anna Swadzba on Jun 29 2017 11:54

We stayed here for a 2 night break. Lovely hotel, comfortable beds an spacious enough room. It was perfect place for rest. We enjoyed swimming pool, sauna and zucuzi. Staffs (swimming pool, restaurant, reception) were kind and helpful. Good value for money. Good breakfast. We had a wonderful time. Anna Swadzba

I stayed here for a 2 night break with 3 friends. We were made feel very welcome both by the staff & the hotel owner. Food was excellent & the spacious reception area had a lovely log fire & cosy couches for evening relaxation.

by Tom on Jun 26 2017 08:34

My wife and 2 kids recently stayed there on a 3 night stay. We found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming. The food was also to our satisfaction. Its location was very central to may of the attractions in the area; such as the Cliffs of Moher and Bunratty.

by Mary Carway on Jun 25 2017 15:41

Lovely hotel, comfortable beds an spacious enough room. Evening dinner special (3 courses) was goo value for money. Plenty choices for a hearty and tasty breakfast. Staff quite friendly and helpful. Easy to get to and delighted that it was out of the town proper. Would be happy to go back - good value. Thank you everyone. Mary and family

Friendly, helpful staff, clean, comfortable rooms

by TN on Jun 13 2017 16:11

Recently stayed here for two nights. The hotel itself was nice. Would I rate it as 4 star, don't think so. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool area was nice. Separate kids pool was great for the younger children. The bedroom was ok, spacious enough for a family room but nothing you wouldn't get in a 3 star hotel. The hotel menu wasn't great. Bar menu was way overpriced. Had to return food as chicken was still pink and chips were freezing. Hotel is about 10mins from Ennis and no other restaurants/bars in area so unless you're willing to travel out you are stuck for choice for food.

by Sinead on Jun 7 2017 11:28

Great two night family stay over the June bank holiday weekend. Friendly staff, good size room, great variety at breakfast and nice leisure facilities. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely hotel and a great variety for breakfast

by MichelleD on Apr 29 2017 10:49

Excellent hotel experience. Staff are very friendly and professional. Food including breakfast could not be faulted. Service very efficient. Rooms are modern and very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Delightful Hotel with very good leisure facilities. The room was spacious and very clean. Every requirement was there. The hotel staff were courteous pleasant and very helpful.

by Anne Handy on Dec 13 2016 11:36

We had an excellent experience in the Woodstock hotel combining it with a visit to see Santa at the Ailwee Caves. It was two families and everyone from reception to the Pool to the Bar where we ate were super friendly. Breakfast was lovely and the children were very excited with the all you can eat buffet. I am trying to be healthy and there certainly was something for everyone. We felt it was good value for the money spent and will definitley be coming back for another stay. The Decorations for Christmas were also excellent,

Lovely Hotel, Delicious dinner and breakfast,Very nice staff ! well recommended!

Warm friendly staff, lovely bedroom with great food at a reasonable price... Great facilities for family holidays...

by LouLou on Sep 14 2016 21:26

We stayed here for 2 nights. The breakfast was very disappointing, orange juice wasn't real orange juice and cooked buffet breakfast was just ok, the coffee was like tar. We are in our mid 30's and we were the youngest. Hotel bar and foyer were a little chilly. Our room was nice and big but the carpet was worn and furniture dated. Staff were very nice and friendly, good location and hotel has huge potential. We had 3 course dinner one night and it was delicious

by Grimzo on Jun 27 2016 12:10

Lovely hotel.Staff very friendly and professional. Rooms were spotless, beds very comfortable. The breakfast and dinner were both excellent.

by Gary on Jun 20 2016 16:51

Great Hotel, very friendly staff.

by Clare on Jun 14 2016 11:48

lovely hotel in lovely location. Food only beautiful breakfast and dinner and plenty of everything. Staff very nice and friendly. Rooms nice and clean and loads of toiliteries.good music in guy and he had everyone up dancing. I'd recommend this hotel. Not within walking distance of town.the bunker bar do a lovely pint and they even have coors on draught. Shane the bar man ,nice fella. Didn't use leisure centre so can't comment on it.for a chilled out relaxing break give this hotel a try.

by Macker on Jun 8 2016 11:12

Definitely not a 4 star hotel. Rooms were fine as was breakfast. Dinner was pretty bad and service was dreadful at dinner. Sides for our meals were brought out as we were finishing up our meal. Kids icecreams had completely melted when they were brought to the table, they ran our of vanilla icecream and chocolate sauce so one kid got different flavour icecream than all the rest and was very upset. Kids meals were ridiculously expensive at 12euro and no price was on the menu, so we got an awful shock when we were charged 112 euro for 5 kids meals and 2 bottles of the house wine (adults meals were included in the package). The whole hotel could do with an upgrade. Will not be returning

by m on May 24 2016 18:36

We had a great stay in the Woodstock hotel.Before we arrived I had checked out the hotel on trip adviser, I saw some photos of one of the rooms, they were not good. I was worried about this as I was bringing some friends from Canada with me, But I was pleasantly surprised as the hotel was really nice. The rooms were spotless, and all the staff were very friendly.The food was very good. I would recommend this hotel. Also my friends said they would tell their friends about it. we are looking forward to returning in the future.

by Donal grimes on May 20 2016 09:37

It would have been a lovely weekend apart from the local at the bar who repeatedly interupted my families weekend.We had to plan our weekend around him it was stressful.Upon arriving i had to show my emails as to be not over charged having repeatedly told the gentleman at the desk the room price.The breakfast was great the inclusive meal was fine the staff in the resturaunt were very attentive all in all it was fine

by Pamela murphy on May 5 2016 16:34

Cannot fault this hotel. Our room was very spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff were excellent, from reception to pool to lounge. Food was lovely, enjoyed everything we ordered. Well done to all, we will be back

We had a lovely stay at Woodstock Hotel.Pleasant staff , clean and comfortable room. Children loved the pool.

by Edel on Apr 27 2016 12:15

Just returned from a great stay at the Hotel Woodstock. We were a large party who gathered there for a family celebration. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient, breakfast was nice and both the food and atmosphere in the bar were great. The children loved the pool. Would definitely recommend it and look forward to our return.

Pleasant stay. Friendly staff.

by antoinette airton on Apr 5 2016 20:09

Hi while we really enjoyed our stay at the Woodstock Hotel we would like to point out that all the bread that was left in the large basket for making toast at the breakfast buffet was mouldy! W e did point this out and the basket was taken away but at this stage most people had already eaten. They could check on their housekeeping staff as we had to go looking for loo rolls for our room and all clothes were left on floor after they made beds. Cannot fault leisure facilities,spotless clean and staff their very nice.

by reviewer76343796 on Apr 1 2016 09:17

Nice hotel with Good staff. Nice leisure centre. . Hotel needs to be upgraded to a 4 star though in parts. More like a 3 Star but great potential to be stunning .

by Siobhan Conroy on Mar 25 2016 17:27

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in the Woodstock. It was most convenient for Ennis itself and visiting the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. Friendly helpful staff, lovely wholesome food and a nice leisure centre to boot!

by ann on Mar 22 2016 21:53

Nice relaxing hotel.Room very clean,staff nice and thanks for the Easter egg they gave my son when leaving .Lovely to see open fire in lobby. Just a note on the area out side golf shop was litter with cigarette butts could do with some attention, but over all very good. Ann from Waterford March 2016.

by June on Mar 22 2016 10:58

Hotel is very nice with clean, spacious rooms. Dinner was very good as was breakfast. It was a very good rate and good value because we only booked a few hours before checking in. Only disappointment for me was the steam room was not working which I was looking forward to as I'm recovering from a chest infection and was looking forward to a bit of steaming! One other problem is we did find it difficult to find the hotel so more signs on approach to Ennis would be helpful.

by Gemma on Mar 8 2016 13:32

Lovely country style hotel. Food very good

by lily84 on Feb 24 2016 12:57

by Ana on Feb 14 2016 13:58

warm, comfortable and relaxing. Room very clean. Breakfast well cooked and satisfying. Pool and pool area functional yet a little industrial. Overall, just what we needed for an overnight recharge.

Hotel was nice , buffet breakfast had plenty of food , food in the restaurant was lovely , the Leisure Center was a bit dissapointing , pool was freezing and jacuzzi wasn't working , the hotel corridor on the way to the room was freezing , staff were very nice , We got it for a good price so it wasn't bad , if I had of paid full price I would have been a bit annoyed .
