The Sunny South-East didn’t get its name by accident and there’s nowhere better to enjoy Ireland’s most consistently bright skies, than The Wooden House Hotel, Kilmore Quay, Co. Wexford. The Wooden House Hotel & Apartments was acquired by Canbe Hospitality in 2019 and given a thorough refurbishment, retaining its bright, open atmosphere and unique features, while upgrading accommodation and facilities throughout. And we haven’t just concentrated on raising standards and refreshing décor, we’re putting just as much care and attention into the welcome, the atmosphere and – of course – the menu, which includes plenty of locally caught seafood. We’ve designed The Wooden House Hotel for the break you want, whether you’re looking for a beachside apartment break with the kids, or a weekend couple’s hotel getaway.

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.

We reserved dinner for 2, well in advance and were seated in the porch with a lovely view, as requested.
The prawn starter was excellent, a reason to return in its own right, the calamari starter less than excellent, the tubes being very thin.
Our salmon & hake mains were cooked to perfection as were the vegetables. The presentations were appealing to the eye. The chips ordered with the mains arrived after 2 reminders, and when we had finished and were deducted from the bill. The staff were friendly, with plenty of them and the place clean, with Covid precautions aplenty.
BUT we requested water 3 times before it was served, a pint of stout twice, the second pint was served overflowing: the delay with the chips was inexcusable. These are individually small things, but too many of them, reflect poorly and can easily be remedied.

Accommodation (one room apartment) was very nice. Clean, modern and well equipped. Great value for money. Excellent central location with free parking. Checked in quickly by lovely and efficient manageress, checkout was very good too. Restaurant and bar staff were pleasant but bar and food service left something to be desired. Under-staffed and inexperienced, the bar even ran out of beer! I ordered steak and onion rings but was given fried onion (yuk) because they’d run out of onion rings! To be fair, several places were either understaffed, slow or even closed, you sensed a real problem with staffing in the area. Pity because it is a gorgeous little village.

Took a trip out to Kilmore Quay which we were delighted we did as had a lovely lunch in wooden house cafe. Lovely warm fire greets one on entrance which we were delighted with after a brisk cold walk it was more than welcome. Food and staff great wide variety on menu to suit all . Very reasonably priced also. Would recommend to anyone visiting area to pop in and experience for themselves. . We will be paying another visit in summer looking forward to it.

We spent a great weekend in one of the apartments in September.
The contactless check-in worked really well, I'm sure this is reassuring for anyone who may be nervous about Covid.
The two bed apartment slept 5 of us comfortably (1 double, 2 singles and a double sofa bed) and was spotless. Very well located with the local Mace only a short walk away, and the chipper, ice-cream shop and a couple of lovely cafes and restaurants only a stone's throw.
We ate dinner at the Wooden House one even and while the food was fine and comparably priced to other restaurants in the area, it did seem a little expensive for the quality of the food, for example I had surf and turf and was very excited about the prawns but they were only ok, rather bland. A special mention goes out to the waiter though, very charming, welcoming and efficient.
The local playground would have kept my children busy all day. Really well equipped, very clean and only a short walk from the Wooden House.
But by far my favourite thing about this hotel is its proximity to the best beach we found at Kilmore Quay. Directly across the road and down the steps, this small beach really is breathtaking. The beach hosts an early morning yoga class, and plenty of people came down to the beach in their bathrobes for an early morning dip. Truly a little slice of heaven.

Went today as walk ina with family were seated quickly, staff very friendly, restaurant spotless, unfortunately the portions very small we counted 10 chips with kids sausage meal, adult fish and chip with mushy peas while very nice small. We treated ourselves to dessert two portions of cheesecake. Honestly looked like they they cut one slice in half smallest we've ever had out.

We stayed here recently and it was lovely. The rooms were spotlessly clean,beds were super comfortable and the hotel was near everything.It doesn’t serve breakfast but you can have a lovely breakfast in The Stella Maris centre to the left of the hotel very reasonably priced. The staff really make this hotel as they are all so friendly especially the manageress,I didn’t get her name but she was lovely.The food served from 11 am was beautiful and fresh and very reasonably priced. All COVID measures were very well followed. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody and we will be back ❤️❤️

Visited again for a second time last stay was August 2013. Booked for 3 nights
Upon arrival total confusion accept with covid regulations some aspects of your stay a little different. I spent 10-15 mins at reception area no one present and a number to call which was not working. I went to the wooden house bar were the receptionist was. Somewhat an unfriendly check in & no customer service.

We were given apt 9 & it was very different to the apt we stayed in before. Bed linen was clean however under one of the beds in second room lay an old sock. Lots of dust under beds too I would say the whole apt was given a half clean not a deep clean you would expect. Shower area in en suite the grime and dirt in the area not pleasant. Also drain blocked somewhat when you were using shower.

Strange musty smell too. I did try to call to reception but again no answer. With the current climate I decided we crack on & had a lovely time in Kilmore quay the people & the restaurants big shout out to keoghs & silver fox some fantastic meals and service.

Will be back to kilmore quay but certainly not to the wooden house. Was told it has had a revamp but I failed to see it in accomadation.

The reception too could & should be more professional. Not one check in the 3 nights we stayed to see was all ok.

Anyway anyone looking to stay hope this helps.

Dear irishman081284, Thank you for your thorough review. We sincerely would like to apologize for the inconvenience you faced during your stay at the Wooden House. To ensure the safety of our customers and staff we have started doing the contactless check-ins and some mistakes, regrettably, can occur. It is unfortunate that you had to experience one of them. We are proud of the cleanliness in our apartments, therefore we are very disappointed this happened. We will be acting on it. We will look into improving our service and ensure that our staff is accessible at all times, and our accommodation is spotless. We understand you are disappointed and will not be recommending our property but we would like to take this as an opportunity to learn and work towards better service. We hope to see you in the future and regain your trust. Kind regards, Canbe Hospitality

Went here with with family and my partner on the 20th of Jun and first of all the service was awful. We were waiting awhile for our order to be even taken and then we were waiting an hour for our food to arrive. We were starving and felt like just leaving. When the food finally arrived it was burned. Me and my nieces chicken goujons were very hard and burned, they were completely disgusting and tasteless that I couldn't finished mine. Both my partner and my nieces partner got burgers and the buns were nearly black and the burger was dry and also tasteless. The presentation was also very careless. The waitress that served us was also rude and unfriendly, My niece had her baby with her and they never even brought out a highchair for him. Also there was a dog begging in our faces while we were eating. Avoid this place at all costs, you be better off going to McDonald's and get a much nicer meal for much less. Overpriced garbage that I wouldn't even give to my dog, worse experience ever and safe to say we will never be back.

We decided to have a dinner at the restaurant in this hotel, and unfortunately we didn't have a great experience. While the young waitresses were profesionals, the food I have to say was disapponting. The soup was good but extremely hot like I have never experienced before, it took a long time before we could start eating it. The main dish we chose was curry and it was the very worst choice we could have made: totally uneatable, the only taste was the extreme spicy level of the dish, which burned our stomach for the rest of the evening and night.. 2 curry dshes for 30 euro for me was money wasted really. Never again

Visited the wooden house for dinner with a friend and it certainly did not disappoint! We both ordered the chicken curry which was absolutely delicious. Perfect portion size and it tasted very fresh and homemade, I will definitely order it again. The staff were very friendly and the was a fire lighting which made it the perfect place to be on a rainy Saturday. Absolute hidden gem and we will definitely be back!
