My niece had her wedding here and it was beautiful. Staff are so lovely. We stayed in the lodge rooms. Very comfortable and clean. Very nice decor and plenty of parking. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and small windy Irish roads. Close to Avoca Hand weavers. Recommended

If you are a city person and used to 4-star hotels, you really get the culchie and country experience there. Everyone is very friendly, but as matters go, a lot of things don't work out, probably a s a lack of proper organisation. Besides, given first a dark and cold smoker's room, we were handed out keys to a room...

Really enjoyed our weekend at the Woodenbridge Lodge and Hotel. We booked The Lodge , our room was comfortable and warm and very clean. The Lodge was away from the main hotel, a very short walk and it was quite nice to be separate from the main building. Staff were very friendly and helpful and offered information on local walks....

Stayed there for two nights with my wife and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff where very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. A breakfast to keep you going all day and delicious evening meal. Our only negative would be the refurbishment which we felt took a lot of the old feel from an otherwise perfect break.
