I've been looking for the Leprechaun's, but to no avail. Maybe tomorrow we might see some! Ireland is a beautiful place, green everywhere, but in the middle of a heat wave...22c degrees. They are melting, but we find it ok. At night it can be a bit hot in the rooms, but it is bearable. They don't have aircons or fans so if there is no breeze it can get very warm. The scenery is spectacular, although it is very hazy in ...
... roof tops and a cute little square and park. It also has a church from the 1200's which is pretty old, so pretty cool. It is only 20ish minutes from campus so we went down there for a couple of hours to walk around. My friends and I first decided to explore Adare manor which is on a gulf course and is attached to the resort. You can stay at the manor which I really want to do because it is ...
... we could get some rest. Unfortunately, I was not comfortable all night. No air-conditioning means bad sleep, plus our blankets were a little sketchy so in a way it worked out in my favor. Tomorrow on the Doolin where we are going to go The Aran Islands and hiking in the Burren. Shout out to Cindy, if this is not letting go and taking an adventure as it comes, please tell me what is. Thank you for pushing me like others to make the most of it. ...
... it is definitely a side effect. No, they go for socializing, and the pint is the social tool. I found a few lists on the internet and learned that Ireland and the Czech Republic are often fighting for top beer consumption in the world. I believe it. The difference between the two countries, at least what I found from traveling, is that the Czech Republic drinks a lot because beer is cheaper than water. Also, they make their own lovely ...
... that even though I was only a few feet from the musicians, I could barely hear them. The musicians weren't great, either. In real sessions, musicians play for long stretches, stringing several tunes together. Even when one player or two takes a break for water or beer or just a stretch, the other musicians carry on. These kids instead played for a few minutes, then stopped for several, then played for a few more, then stopped for several more. Not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fitzgerald's Woodlands House Hotel Adare
The place is nice, its a bit far out from Adare and its a dangerous road to walk. I would recommend it to people with a car. We went for a nice relaxing weekend, and thats what we got. The room was nice and big, but found the walls a bit thin!
The food was fab (breakfast, lunch and dinner), the swimming pool and gym facilities are great. Apart from the fire-alarm going off 4 times during the nights we were staying, it was great!
Loved the Woodlands House!
Stayed five nights and loved it! The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the acomodations clean, the food very good and plenty of it. The food service staff cooked my family turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, and dressing for us for our american Thanksgiving dinner! Will definately stay here again when in Adare.
We recently stayed here for 3 nights over a bank holiday weekend (2 adults and 2 young children).
My husband and I have just returned from a three-night stay at the Woodlands. The hotel is ideally placed being a 45-minute car journey from Shannon Airport, and only a couple of minutes from the picturesque village of Adare.
I stayed at this hotel last week for five nights and found it excellent. My wife and three children were also very pleased with our stay.
What a dump!
To start with the staff was rude in greeting us. At 4:pm the room was clean or ready. They couldn't find our reservation. The room furniture (chairs and bedspread) and carpet were thread bear and dirty. This hotel had seen better days. No charm or warmth. The food was not much better and to make thing worse..it is out in the middle of no where!! I think the staff wins the award for being so rude!! Think twice before booking this one!
We stayed for 2 nights recently after securing a special offer direct from the hotel.
Very nice comfortable hotel good food
We spent a very enjoyable January weekend at the Hotel. Two adults and 2 kids 9 + 6. Room was their standard room but much larger than normal hotel room. Food was top notch and reasonably priced. Leisure centre was enjoyable. Had expected a kids club and was slightly dissapointed when it wasnt open Friday or in the evenings, as this is the period when one wishes to enjoy the restaurent. Was informed though that it does open on a more regular basis in busier periods,
Middle of the road, lacks character
big hotel, good facilities, lacks personal touch in decor. That said the family who run it are very evident around the hotel (check out the portrait in the foyer) We had a few issues around choosing a bottle of wine at dinner (from a small wine list our four four choices for a bottle of red were out of stock- we changed our order to beers!) Rooms are a good size, enormous beds, and jacuzzi baths (we were in an executive type room). Avoid breakfast, it is very greasy, nearly all deep-fried, although good selection of teas etc. We attended a wedding and the service was excellent at the reception. Pity the hotel is now so big that it has very little character
I had a very enjoyable stay in August 2003. The hotel is set in the countryside and has very pleasant gardens. The room I was given was spacious and above average size. The room was clean and pleasantly decorated and felt quite homely. The bathrooms looked quite new and there was a jacuzzi function in the baths themselves. There is onsite Timmie Mac's bar which seemed popular and served good food. All in all it made for pleasant and relaxing stay just a couple of miles from Adare described as Ireland's best village!
