A walk to do again and again...
Aug 2021
Having driven through the beautiful village of Inistioge many time over the years, we finally got around to doing the Woodstock Gardens loop walk this week and were rewarded by a wonderful walk from the village, along the river Nore before heading up to the house and gardens.
The walk was great but we were amazed by the scale and grandeur of the gardens culminating in what must be the nicest tearoom anywhere (at least on a sunny day!)

Wonderful Woodstock Arms
Jul 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed a great two night stay in the Woodstock Arms B&B and bar, a wonderful family owned business run by Richard & Annette. The en-suite spotless bedroom was comfortable and a good size for a family of two or three. The breakfast was delicious and included lovely fresh fruit and yogurt followed by a full Irish breakfast with options available. We ate from the short but perfectly pitched evening menu on one of the evenings topped off with pints of Guinness from their lovely bar. The bar has great character and Richard and Annette have done a wonderful job in ensuring that their business is ready to welcome their customers. We look forward to returning again, a great experience in a beautiful part of Ireland.

Beautiful place
Jul 2021 • Couples
A place you could spend the whole day in of you wanted, some fabulous walks, beautiful gardens, next time we will take a picnic. Their is a tearoom on site that serves small snacks. Toilets in the car park and all this for 5 euro pay on exit at the barrier. Definitely worth a visit.

Disgustingly treated by tearoom staff
Jul 2021 • Family
What a beautiful place with nasty service. We were on a family walk with the whole family and stopped at the tearoom for coffee, tea and cake. We took 2 tables outside the premises as the only customers at the moment, but no one from the service staff came to serve us, I went inside and ordered. Later my husband joined us and he also had to go inside and order. Employees were not interested in customers sitting at empty tables inside. Suddenly it started to rain a lot, because we were with a 6-month-old baby, we decided to hide inside. Then the staff asked me to show the vaccination card and when I said that I do not have and why she wants now and not when I ordered and paid, I was told that I must leave this place and go out to rain with the neighborhood. I will not even mention the incompetence of the service, i.e. not giving sugar or a teaspoon ... I will definitely not come back and I will advise against it, despite the fact that the place is beautiful.

Hidden Gem of Inistioge
Jul 2021
We stumbled across Woodstock Gardens while driving in the area. What a find!
Access to the gardens is €5 per car. We spent an hour walking around the beautiful gardens. If we had planned better we could have stayed much longer.

The gardens are beautiful and there are frequent information points to update you on what you are looking at.

We had tea, coffee and cake in the Tearooms which was fabulous in both terms of the food, service and location.

There are toilets available in the car park and a covered picnic area. We couldn't believe that there weren't more people enjoying the facilities!

We will definitely be back.

Lovely and tranquil
May 2021 • Business
Probably left it a bit late in the day to visit this beautiful spot but next time we will arrive earlier and have our picnic on the grounds here instead. So much to explore and appreciate from beautiful landscape, rambling pathways and a great kids playground. Pop in to the tiny cottage slightly exposed under the vegetation and you will be pleasantly surprised what’s on the other side. Reminds me of Narnia as you walk out into a different world on the other side of the cottage. A magical feeling. Definitely recommend Woodstock for all the family.
Will we return: definitely
Plenty to explore- perfect for picnics
Well worth €5.
