Woodford Dolmen Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Got married in the Woodford Dolmen on 12th August and the service was brilliant from first picking the Dolmen right through to the day after the wedding. Clare was fantastic nothing was to much for her to do for us the attention to detail was above and beyond. All the staff were so accommodating. Food was amazing 'Pork Pulled Spring Rolls' were to die for and the beef was cooked to perfection. Bridal Suite is huge and love the colours of the newly decorated room. All the rooms are nice and bright, clean and fresh. I had over 20 kids at the wedding and all the staff in the hotel were so good with them the day of the wedding and the day after. The service from all the staff is phenomenal and i would highly recommend to anyone to stop in the Dolmen.

Clean and tidy hotel. Lovely staff. Food was gorgeous. Bit on the old fashioned side but in a good way. Will definitely recommend to people going that direction. Very reasonable pricing. Handy to the main arterial routes.

Stayed at the charming Woodford Hotel again this summer and was very impressed with the new and very stylish decor. The restaurant and lobby are like something out of an interior design magazine and the rooms are still very comfortable but now have a great touch of luxury about them. Saw many familiar faces among the very friendly staff. Another great constant - the river view!... Will be back next year.

Great value for money located just on the outskirts of Carlow town , reception is fabulous 👌 room didn't seem to be sued Ina while cob webs and dust but couldn't fault anything else would recommend a visit , lovely walk way behind hotel also :)

Just eaten in the Bistro the food was excellent the service second to none all the staff are a credit to the hotel, so helpful, friendly, polite and efficient the two girls that looked after us were first class and deserve a pay rise, manager please take note your staff are doing an excellent job will be recommending you to all

Myself and my wife have just returned from a 2 night stay and I have to say we were very pleased. Upon arrival I checked in at reception and the girl there was very friendly and helpful as were all the staff we encountered. Food was very good and service was efficient and pleasant. There was a wedding there one of the nights and we could hear nothing from our room which meant a peaceful nights sleep. Overall an excellent hotel with helpful and friendly staff. Will definitely be returning again.

I have stayed here countless times as I travel all over Ireland with business, normally I have only good reports on the hotel. Today I was given room 123 and what a room with a view, really I'm not a fussy person but you'd think the hotel would look after its regulars. Sadly not I'm afraid.

We arrived after the church here on Saturday afternoon and as soon as we got into the place we were greeted with a very warm welcome place looked amazing so at half five six so we started with the speeches we had Claire as the wedding organiser and I'd like to take a minute to thank her for all the advice she was amazing she did everything for us she is a gem to the place and they have the most amazing chef the food was out of this world (thanks chief for an outstanding meal) and the serving staff was as helpful and friendly to everyone as they could be (and I'd like to thank them too) the place looked amazing and rooms were nice and clean and cosy only I live in Dublin I would definitely held my wedding at this amazing hotel I will definitely be back with the family to stay again. Thanks again the everyone involved from saturday until we left on money

Going to a children's event in the area we decided to book this hotel for a family over night stay. Booking the room was easy and in the week coming up to the date we were contacted to confirm the booking which was a nice touch. On arrival the place looked lovely and scenic. They have beautiful fairy houses out the front for the kids which gave us the feeling we were staying in a family friendly hotel. Check in and greeting were very friendly and easy. We ate in the restaurant that night and the food was very good with a very good kids menu also. The staff are fantastic and couldn't do enough to help you and everyone we spoke to tried to build rapport with us which gives a great personal touch. There was also a wedding in the hotel that night and still we were looked after without delay or lack of quality. The family bedrooms seem to be the furthest away for this very reason which makes complete sense however I could still hear the music from the function room. (all slept soundly though) In my opinion a great place for families with very reasonable prices. The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped.
