... clothes tomorrow! Oh, and we stopped at a grocery today. We got a few things for breakfast and a few for dinner (snacks) and we'll probably hit a pub tonight (this town has 4 and only one general store) for dinner and drinks. I am having a hard time keeping my eyes open. I'm exhausted and cold, not a good combination. But I'll manage! I'm ok as long as I don't lay down... Kind of like what I'm doing right ...
... turnouts. I just moped around, feeling total deflation. You know that feeling, when you are psyched for something, only for it not to happen? That was me. Well, we asked the ticket woman if she would refund us, and she did! Then she suggested we go to Galway, instead, since a bus was leaving in about 20 minutes. Aussie and I stepped aside for a moment, discussed our options for about 3 seconds, then hopped back in line, this time ordering tickets ...
... 8221; I returned back to my room and slept 12 hours. Oi. The next morning, the owner, Michael, made me a full Irish breakfast, which is essentially a plate of meat, and drove me back to my apartment. Such a nice introduction to Ireland!
I fixed up my room and unpacked everything, then realized I needed hangers for my clothes. My room is basic, basic, basic, and I am worried I don’t have enough closet space. Uh oh. ...
... and Lori, who generously took me in. I dumped everything off and then headed out to: the beach (the Strand), Connor Pass, Dingle, and Inch. What a great day! I admit I lingered awhile at the beach taking photos and watching the waves break. Then I headed up the pass to go over the mountains and make it down to a seaside town called Dingle. Before I got there, I had to wait for the sheep to cross the road . . . ...
... I arrived in the
Liverpool airport I had a 10 hour layover before my flight to
Shannon, Ireland departed. It wouldn't have been so bad had it been
10 hours during the day, but I didn't arrive at the Liverpool airport
until 12am. They wouldn't let anyone check in before 4:30am so I had
to spend half the night trying to sleep on marble floors in the
entrance of the airport; needless to say, I didn't get much sleep.
Finally I was able to get checked in and ...

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!
