Dear Guest,

It gives us great pleasure to introduce you to the Woodenbridge Hotel & Lodge.

Established in 1608, Woodenbridge Hotel is the oldest hotel in Ireland

and some of our past guests include Michael Collins, Eamon de Valera,

Charles Stewart Parnell and Thomas Moore, who have all been captivated

by the idyllic wonder of Woodenbridge.

It is adjacent from the main hotel in wonderful, landscaped gardens

overlooking the Aughrim River.

There are 40 bedrooms that can avail of all the facilities of the main hotel,

but are away from the hustle and bustle.
