Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Huge Weeds in vegetable garden , herbaceous Border recently replanted and poorly maintained. Tea house not open at appointed time. Why bother? Better gardens elsewhere

A very surprising visit, with immensely large trees from all over the world, planted 150 yrs ago. For instance you'll fins the largest sequioa tree in Europe. We were amazed by the Noble fir walk and the rhododendrons which were huge. We had no idea what to expect when we entered the garden and the arboretum, but it turned out to be a real secret garden, hidden in the hills above Inistioge. Well worth a visit, €5 entrance and you get to stroll around as long as you like and enjoy the results of the architectural mind of Lady Louisa Tighe from 150yrs ago

This is one of my favourite places for a great walk,I go early morning when it is very quiet,there is a large car park and is 5 euros to enter,the gardens are vast and there are several great walk ways with some through woods,there is a large gentry house there built in the late 1800 hundreds which burnt down many years ago,there are toilets there and you can get refreshments and meals in the nearby very beautiful village

Had a wonderful afternoon at Woodstock, fantastic views over the countryside from the formal garden in front of the ruined Manor House.The walled garden is just beginning to come to life after the long winter but the arboretum and rhododendrons were great. Unfortunately the tea room hasn’t opened yet. As we turned to begin the trek back to the car park a lovely man in a golf cart pulled up and offered my elderly father a lift back down the hill. Lenny and his terrier Murphy took us back via the Monkey Puzzle avenue and we had a great chat, he told us that all the maintenance and gardening is handled by only 5 full time employees!!!! I couldn’t come to Kilkenny and not visit Woodstock, it’s such a beautiful and peaceful location

We were staying nearby, and went for a ramble around the gardens. Lovely place to let children run off some energy, and adults to walk off some of the Christmas excesses! Lots of nice walks. Also toilets, and a children's playground.

A beautiful place to visit with walks around the grounds. The story board trail (Elephant and Owl) are a nice touch for younger children. The staff in the tea room were lovely and th e tea and cakes tasty and the setting fab.

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!)
