Stayed here for 2 nights, The hotel was being renovated internally at the time but this did not take from our stay as the workers were very polite, always made room for us to pass and said hello. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful across all departments, offering us advice on what was available near and far to do with the kids. The restaurant was great with fantastic food and staff, buffet breakfast was great. We ate here both nights as the dinner menu had a great selection. The pool and gym was top notch too. Overall a fantastic stay enjoyed by both us and the kids, we would highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to get back there again.

We recently stayed in Fitzgeralds woodlands hotel for 2 nights. We stayed in suite 501 and had breakfast included. On entering the grounds of the hotel we were impressed, there was a long driveway up to the hotel- you could see farm animals in the fields surrounding and lovely gardens at the entrance of the hotel. There was a wedding taking place and the guests along with the bride and groom were arriving at the hotel. Our first impressions were very good and there seemed to be a great atmosphere outside the main door and in the lobby.

When we entered the hotel through the main door we were greeted by a lady at reception who checked us in. She was very friendly and check in was quick even though the lobby was very busy with the wedding. We were given the key to suite 501. The room was amazing- big round bed, sofa, tables and chairs, an extra bedroom and big bathroom with a jacuzzi bath AND HOMEMADE COOKIES IN OUR ROOM!

That evening, we went to use the leisure facilities, we were surprised with how big the gym and pool were. We had a look in the gym- but didn't use it. They seemed to have a wide variety of equipment and classes. The changing rooms were spotless and they led out to an adults area which included a sauna, steamroom and jacuzzi. We then went into the main swimming pool which was big- it had lanes for swimming and also areas to relax.

We went out to adare village to eat that night. We booked into Revas spa on the Sunday for a spa day. From the minute you walked into the spa- the atmosphere was relaxing. We were immediately greeted by the lady on reception and we filled out a health questionnaire. We were then escorted to the changing facilities and again to the treatment rooms. We met a few different staff members throughout the day at the spa, all of whom were very pleasant and helpful. After my hot stone massage and facial we were escorted to a relaxation area with juices and fruit and then to the thermal suite. The thermal suite was very relaxing and we really enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi and tropical showers.

That evening we decided to avail of the in room dining menu. We didnt wait long for the food to be delivered and the waiter was very friendly and the food was delicious.

Breakfast both mornings was a self service buffet and was really nice. The waitresses were very nice and continuously checked that you were happy and looked after.

Adare village itself is a very cute village. Some cottages have a thatched roof. There are lovely little shops and cafes around adare also. The hotel was just a 10 minute drive from the Crescent Shopping centre which we found good for shopping.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely return the this hotel

This hotel is a family favourite of ours. The staff across all departments of the hotel are friendly and extremely helpful. Our sons went to the summer camp each day and they had great fun. We had a large family room that was lovely and comfortable. The restaurant has a great atmosphere with beautiful food.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and I can't wait to get back there again.

I don't know where to start. We were ages checking in. Went to our rooms which were so tired and old fashioned. We had a key to get into the room and a card to get the lights to work. The very old T.V had 5 channels. We headed down to the bar that smelt like the bottom of a keg. The tables were littered with cups, plates and tissues.The owners ( Family owned ) must not be bothered about the place when they use duct tape to hold the carpet to the stairs. The bed was like sleeping on a hill as one side was much lower than the other. Be carefully stepping out of the bathroom at night as there is a step up onto the bedroom.

Many thanks for your taking the time to submit your review.

We are disappointed that you were not happy with the room allocated to you. Had we been made aware of your dissatisfaction, we would have gladly changed your room for you. A key entrance with a card for power is standard in many hotels. We are a environmentally conscious hotel and the card for power is much more efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly.

You may have entered the bar at a particularly busy time but we have not received a complaint or feedback regarding the a 'smell'. This is something we will have to look into further as it is not something that is by any means the norm.

In line with your feedback, we would like to advise you that we are currently refurbishing many of our bedrooms which will raise the accommodation standard of our hotel. We hope that on your return visit that you may observe the fruits of our labour. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly when you are visiting our hotel again so that we can upgrade you with our compliments.

Over the last 31 years, we have dedicated our family and team's resources to build a successful and award winning hotel, that is much revered for its warm feel and value for money.

We thank you again for your feedback which has been shared with all of our team members in the hope of improving all of our guests experiences.

Kind Regards
Elaina Fitzgerald, on behalf of the Fitzgerald family and team.

Both my partner and I were very impressed with the hotel. We stayed for one night in the middle of July on a dinner, bed and breakfast package which was extremely reasonable.

The staff are extremely friendly and professional and go that extra mile to ensure your stay is what you expect. From reception, bar, bistro, restaurant, to leisure centre and cleaning staff everyone we met greeted us and was courteous.

The grounds of the hotel are lovely and we walked around when we arrived as we were early. The hotel is situated outside the town of Adare in a woodland area.

The spa looked fabulous although we did not get to use it.

The leisure centre was very well equipped and we had a lovely swim there.

We had lunch in the bistro and it was nice.

There was a wedding in the hotel that night so there was a good crowd in the bar and a bit of banter with the hurling matches that were on that eveving.

Dinner was really lovely. The food was exceptional as was the service. The two young waiters were so professional with the right amount of humour and friendliness. We were even brought complimentary champagne when they found out it was my birthday. Plus they put a candle in my dessert and sang happy birthday. The owner came around to every table to chat to the diners and to ask that everything was ok-a nice touch.

We went for a drink in the bar afterwards which was nice except the music finished very early-around 11 on Sat night.

Our room was on the ground floor and was massive-single, double and couch bed and while the furniture was slightly older it was spotlessly clean. You could have easily fitted five adults comfortably! The bathroom appeared to have been re-tiled recently but there was a small crack in the sink which was older.

Breakfast the following morning was lovely too. Usual selection of hot and cold items.

All in all we had an absolutely fabulous night away and I would highly recommend this hotel-in fact I have already to friends and look forward to our return.

Fitzgerald's Woodlands House Hotel is just the most fantastic place to stay if you are staying near Adare this is the hotel for you. From check in to check everything was perfect. The staff are most helpful/ Beds are extremely comfortable and the food delicious. I spent most of the day in the leisure center, which has a jacuzzi, stem room and sauna, these are separate form the swimming pool which make the experience even more relaxing. I would recommend that you take the short walk to the end of the car park and you will be pleasantly surprised to see the lovely chickens, rabbits, peacocks etc.
