“Woodenbridge family – My overall like of staying in Woodenbridge hotel is how friendly the staff are… they were like one big family. Loved it.”

Booking.com review, August 2020

Homemade food for every mood ​

If you’re craving a juicy hand-minced burger (yep, it won an award), our famous banana bread (well, in online review land), or an unforgettable board of smoked meat and fish, we’ve got you covered.

And some more.

Step inside our cosy Irish bistro or outdoor smokery for a tasty bite to remember. Booking is recommended as many travel just to eat here.

Location, Location, Location.

Yes, our location is so good we needed to say it three times.

Nestled into the Vale of Avoca and a stone’s throw away from the Wicklow Mountains, the Woodenbridge Hotel & Lodge has some of Ireland’s most stunning views.

Just imagine stomping around in nature and coming back to a steaming Irish cuppa or creamy Guinness after all that fresh air.

We might not be the best choice if you’re looking for a central Arklow hotel (we’re 10 minutes away by taxi).

But if you’re looking for the best Wicklow hotel near Glendalough (we’re 30 minutes away) then we’ve got a room with your name on it.

Have you been to Beyond the Trees at Avondale? We are only 15 minutes drive away. 

We are surrounded by golf courses and stunning walking trails and hikes. Explore Wicklow and relax afterwards in the comfortable surroundings of Ireland’s oldest hotel.
