“Wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

My mother, daughter, and I stayed at Woodlands for one night and loved it. Barbara could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We called the day of our arrival and were very happy there was room for us. The triple on the third floor was clean and cozy - the bathroom was terrific. Barbara helped with a dinner recommendation - which was perfect - and with directions for horseback riding the following morning. She also took my mother to Mass with her which was great. We ran into difficulties obtaining cash from the in-town ATM and Barbara could not have been more gracious as we sorted out our payments. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: We had a beautiful triple room on the third floor.

Barbara treated us as family, actually going as far as walking us to a local favorite restaurant. Very clean accomodations and the Irish breakfast was delicious. The beds were very comfortable. We were a group of 10 - took 4 rooms - and we will definitely go back if ever in Ireland.

Canadians living the Irish dream - and that's not just 'Blarney'!!!

What a wonderful experience! I wasn't expecting such high quality, spacious or modern accommodation but this B&B exceeded all my expectations and it was coupled with the most charming, affable, helpful hotelier I have ever met. The full Irish breakfast is not to be missed! Barbara assisted in more ways than I could have possibly imagined and I feel like I've made a friend in the bargain. Can't say enough positive things. Off the main road, but a short, lovely walk into town made for very quiet, peaceful nights and I had some of the best sleep I've had in months!

Barbara made us feel so welcome! Her home is beautiful and just as the name indicates it is in a wooded, peaceful area and conveniently located near town. Our room was very comfortable and so clean. The facilities were modern-the shower was terrific! Now to the outside-the grounds are outstanding and the flowers beautiful. A great place to stay,

If hospitality din't already exist, Barbara Kelly would surely have invented it. She welcomes you with a smile, a culpa, a good story and a fantastic room. Give good local advise, another good story and a nightcap. Breakfast is outstanding. It was a pity our program dictated departure, we would have loved to stay a bit longer.

We found this accommodation to be a home away from home. Barbara made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room itself was excellent and very cosy and comfortable. Would recommend this property to anybody wanting good value for money in a very convenient and quiet location.

Large purpose built B&B, but with a very homey feeling. Rooms were good size; bathrooms were the largest of the B&B's we experienced. Walking distance into town is very convenient after driving on the narrow Irish roads!

Barbara could not have been more friendly or accommodating. She not only provided good restaurant recommendation, but also gave us a fun route to experience the Connemara region. Being north of Galway it is a great location to experience both Connemara and Galway.

We would stay here again next time in Ireland.
