Handy for an overnight stay

Posted 20-Sep-2017
I’ve stayed at the Dolmen a couple of times now, staff are really friendly, food in the restaurant is fantastic. Rooms are clean and tidy and well equipped. The only thing that lets it down ever so slightly in my opinion is that the bathrooms are starting to look a little tired but still perfectly functionable. All in all, I like staying here and will book a room here again.

Lovely hotel

We would stay here again if we were passing through. Girl at reception let us use laptop to print boarding passes. Very good food and breakfast.

Convenient to Carlow town centre

Posted 17-Aug-2017
Pros: The staff - very customer focused & friendly. The relaxed bar and lobby area - bar offers some very good gin & tonic mixes!
Cons: bathroom - ours was dated and shabby. Shower screen didn't fit properly, mildew along top of bath, basin was cracked + stain at base of pedestal.
Location: couple of miles outside Carlow town centre. The Waterford Crystal Factory & Newbridge Silver Centre/Style Museum are great places to visit.
Beautiful lobby & reception area. The hotel staff are very friendly & helpful. We spent 2 nights here & enjoyed our stay.

Nice hotel with nice grounds

Posted 15-Jul-2017
We needed a hotel to break up our journey and Woodford Dolmen ticked all the boxes - central location on main roads through ireland, quiet site, excellent parking, affordable, friendly and efficient staff, spacious and clean rooms.

Very disappointing!

Posted 03-May-2017
This hotel was extremely disappointing for us. There was a live band playing below our room until 130am which was very disruptive given we had our 5mth old with us and we were flying hime the next day. When I brought up my concern (noise complaint) with the front desk agent she explained that she could ask the band to turn the bass down or she could move us to a room on the lower floor but there would be foot traffic noise from the catering event. The room itself was very dated, the wall paper was peeling, cracks in the walls, plastic cups in the bathroom, and the water temperature was luke warm at best. We stayed in some beautiful hotels during our 2wk stay in Ireland and this hotel was by far the most expensive and the most disappointing. I would not recommend this hotel.

nice family room, towels and sheets looked grey and grubby which let the rest of the room down, but otherwise very comfortable.
