Some good features, including great steaks in the Timmy Macs restaurant; our room was fine but with an old style TV & limited range of stations. We had forgotten to bring shampoo etc so I personally found the bottles of gel / shampoo rather awkwardly fixed to the tiled wall several feet over the bath - fine if one wanted a shower.
On arrival, just before 3 pm, we were informed our room may not be ready till 4 pm, so we decided to have a snack in the lobby & ordered sandwich and drinks ( no food allowed in the bar). After about 30 minutes and after reminding reception the food arrived, by which time the room was ready.
I was informed that the wifi had been down on the day (Sunday) we arrived - by Tuesday afternoon when we were leaving, it was still unavailable.
I used the spa, which unusually I was informed had to be booked well in advance; also unusually it only operates from 11am till 3pm. I asked if I could get a hair cut after my hour but was informed later the salon was fully booked - despite this as I was passing (12 noon) it seemed to me the salon was empty. I did not bother using the 2nd spa voucher, .

Room Tip: No elevators / dont depend on Wifi being available / bring you own shampoo etc if you enjoy a bath...

Stay in hotel on a regular business,and that confirms I have largely positive experience of the hotel. However the most recent visit was not to the generally good standard. The restaurant food was ok at best,the lamb stew was just softened meat in hot water.There was also no WiFi,despite strong signals being indicated.Maybe it was an off day,or I was grumpy,but this usually is a solid and welcoming hotel.We will use again ,but hope for better

Hi David,
We would just like to say a míle, míle, míle buíochas for our wonderful reception on the 17th December, 2011. The homely atmosphere from our first dealings with you made the whole experience a thoroughly enjoyable one. Yourself, Elaina and all the staff were so friendly, professional and made our day so relaxing. Service was very efficient and whatever we asked for was 'no problem'. The food was highly complimented by everyone we spoke to afterwards. It was also a pleasure to meet both your Mam & Dad during our time there.
We wish you and all the family continued success for 2012 and look forward to seeing ye on 17th December, 2012 for a little reunion :)
Margaret & Barry

I have visited Fitzgeralds Woodlands hotel on many occassions for business and have always found the hotel to be excellent. In December I had my first opportunity to experience being a guest at a wedding there and WHAT an EXPERIENCE! Every little detail was taken care of, i started off in the spa in the morning to get my make up done and an "up do" in the hair salon, it was great, we got an early check in before the wedding and were able to get made up and changed before the wedding in comfort. It was a wet and windy day so when we came back from the church the mulled wine reception was very welcoming, the reception area of the Woodlands House hotel is great for this post church - pre dinner chat and relaxation. Then it was into the dinner where everything went off without a hitch, and you can see why, this is a family run hotel, everybody cares about their customers and wants to make sure that they have a great experience. I could not recommend them highly enough, thanks everyone at the woodlands for a great day!

This hotel is a nice hotel, rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Its a large country house that has been overtime renovated and extended into a hotel. The banquet room is a lovely room for a wedding reception. The food is lovely and tehy provide you with very generous portions. There is a bar and restaurant in the hotel. Just to bear in mind though the hotel is outside the villate of adare and you couldnt walk back at night
