From the first phone call en route to this hotel with a party of 35 people everything says quality the response from the reception desk to the greeting from one of the owners. Nothing was too much trouble the arrangements for meals were dealt with very quickly & without fuss. The staff who were asked to provide porterage the waiters & waitresses room attendants every one of them is polite & proffesional. The owners are always on hand to assist with any quieries or questions it seems to me that in this hotel everyone is equal & works for the common cause of making guests stays at this hotel memorable in every way possible. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to anyone family friends or other tour operators. I have stayed in places with higher star ratings & had far worse accomodation & service. All in all one word sums up here BRILLIANT!!

I have stayed here for the last 5/6 years and has always been good up to this ..... I had cold water for 3 days and when I brought it to their attention they told me they knew about it and yet didn't feel the need to tell anyone !!!!... Almost every night in the restaurant we had an issue with something .... My friend had an appalling experience when she checked in and if it had been me I would have just walked .... We made all these complaints to one of the managers and we were told he would deal with all of the issues personally and contact us back .... Guess what .... Still waiting .... Will not be recommending this hotel again to anybody ... Nor will I be staying again

Dear Ms. Duggan

Many thanks for your feedback again in relation to your stay with us as part of Limerick Dog Show. The issues that you highlighted to us during your stay were primarily fueled by your annoyance that dogs were not permitted to stay overnight in bedroom and in areas near to bedroom corridors. You used this as a catalyst to find a fault with most other aspects of what we do in our hotel. I think it is important to highlight that we had many very satisfied guests as part of the Dog show programme this year and your experiences do not reflect the overall sentiment and patronage of dog show attendees who return year after year. It is also important to note that the guests that you outline had a negative check in experience have re booked for an even longer stay as part of next years dog show. We take all fair guests comments on board. We dealt with yours at the time and after our gestures it is our perception that no further follow up was necessary.

Over the last 30 years we have built our hotel up from a 4 bed roomed B&B to the fantastic and luxurious surroundings that we have today. This has been achieved from listening to our customers and improving on their suggestions.

Thanking you,
Sincerely,
Elaina Fitzgerald

My son and daughter were at a Debs in The Woodlands recently and all I am hearing from them is how great the night was. The hotel staff were so nice to them as it was the first trip to the hotel for most if not all of the kids. The meal was beautiful with a lovely chocolate cake for dessert, yummy. When you hear teenagers praising places like hotels I think its very well worth noting. I have often been to the hotel and really enjoyed anytime I was there. Thanks again to everyone in the Woodlands and continued success in your business.

After driving on the right side of the road for three days (takes a while to get used to; and the some roads are very narrow) I needed to regroup. Fitzgerald's was the perfect place to spent three days.

The hotel has everything: fitness center, a wonderful SPA, very friendly and yet professional staff and a very good restaurant - with quite reasonable prices. The hotel is less than 3 miles from Adare which is a neat, somewhat small village, but quite unique and with great pubs. There is a very reasonably priced golf course 1 mile from the hotel.

We met a number of Irish folks at the Woodlands, had afternoon tea, and drank Irish craft beers from the bar. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. Also, we were able to tour the middle of Ireland each day as the hotel's location is only an hour or so from the Cliffs of Moor, Galway, Blarney, etc.

The first night we stayed there the local high school was having its prom. The hotel has lovely facilities for weddings, receptions and proms.

It turned out to be the perfect place to spend a few nights and days. jr

Room Tip: My mattress had a soft spot on my side of the bed. I reported this and the mattress was replaced.

Have to say that this family run business is top level. Reception very efficient and friendly. Pub run like a clock with a nice irish twist. Timmy Mack´s breakfast bar with self service impecable, you can eat to your hearts content. Restaurant serves beautiful irish dishes, taste excellent, service with a smile. Rooms really really nice and tidy although the furthest back rooms are quite far from the front desk. So if you are handicapped ask for the rooms near the front and ground level.
Spa was just OK. The woman on the desk had " the balls" to start giving me, born n Finland, advice on how to go to sauna...that was a bit thick and that is why just VG overall rating. All and all a lovely stay every time.

Stunning hotel, lovely rooms and service was prompt and friendly. Meals were spot on and the amenities were very good. Would stay here again. This was a location where as part of the holiday we were attending a dog show. I didnt expect the hotel to be as lovely as it was considering the grounds played host to the show. Even then the hotel hosted breakfast for all and allowed the use of the bar, toilets and wifi. Very pleased.

Hello,

We would like to thank you for all the nice comments you made about our entire hotel. We value our guests feedback very highly as this has been the bedrock of our success over the last 30 years.

We host the dog show every year and we aim to provide excellent service to both the guests staying the nights surrounding the event and the guests coming in just for the day.

All services are available to guests while they stay with us and we are pleased you took full advantage of this. It was great to read you had the opportunity to dine with us and you enjoyed the food provided to you.

Hope to see you return for the show next year, if you do return please do not hesitate to contact me directly and we will endeavour to provide some treats with our compliments.

Elaina Fitzgerald and family
