“ Address: Shanaway Road / Ennis / County Clare / Ireland „
We happened upon the Woodstock Hotel on late rooms as we were looking to find somewhere nice to stay that was en route from Cork to Galway. As a result we got a very last minute deal, something like 45 euros for a room which is normally 200+. It suited us perfectly as we simply wanted a place to chill out rather than head out into Ennis.
On arrival we were promptly checked in and found the room to be more than sufficient for our requirements (although the TV didn't work at all). It was a large room facing the back of the hotel which was fine. We made our way to the leisure centre and enjoyed a swim, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna (swimming hats are compulsory and not very flattering!), a perfect way to relax.
Rather than using the restaurant in the hotel (which was busy with a function) we stumbled upon a bar next door in the golf club house. It was not your usual golf club bar as you were allowed to wear jeans etc. My partner had the sirloin steak and it was quite simply superb, I had a roast chicken which was also very nice (steak was 22 euros but worth it). Several pints of guinness later and then a relaxing nights sleep. Very prompt check out and we were on our way. Very nice hotel and staff. Only downside is that it is a good 10 minutes drive outside of Ennis therefore you would probably need a taxi if you wanted to venture away from the hotel
