Stayed at Woodford Domen Hotel three nights last week,( four of us). Arrived on the Sunday in time for lunch, food was beautifully cooked and of excellent quality. It was very busy but staff were efficient & pleasent. Receptionist Ciara checked us in, a mindful of information with regard to the goings on in Carlow & excellent on directions. Truly an asset to the hotel. We dined here all three nights and could not fault food. Well done to Mr Chef's. Room's were spotless & breakfast was very good. Emma too was most helpful & Mary in the restaurent was top class. Staff here seem to work great as a team, doing a great job. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Woodford Dolmen to friends or family. We look forward to returning here again. Thanks to you all.

Room Tip: Rooms at the side or back of hotel are quieter

Stayed at a family wedding last Saturday. Staff are lovely as is the hotel itself. Food was beautiful and all the guests commented on this fact. Also a lot of hotels hike their room and bar prices for weddings as they have a captive audience, this is not the case of the Dolmen whose prices are very reasonable. All the wedding guests had a wonderful day and the only fault I have is the hall upstairs on the way to the room was very cold. Room itself was fine and the temperature in the hall heading to the room is the only fault I could find. Well done the Dolmen and all at the wedding have no problem recommending this hotel.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good food, comfortable room. Saturday night was quite in the bar but to be expected at that time of year. Would recommend to friends. Only downside is that it is out of town so if you want to sample the Carlow nightlife a taxi is required if you fancy a pint or two.
