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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I love the coffee cake, its the best in Ireland. Unfortunately I dont live nearby but will happily detour if I'm within an hour's distance to stop in, all the food is delicious and the quality is superb. I love that I can bring my...dogs and eat in the courtyard. The staff is super friendly and helpful especially Alicia. Last week it was lovely to see the hens and chickens wander around the courtyard.More

Lovely staff at till and table, but so so disappointing that for the second visit this month the manager and kitchen staff were visibly without their masks. No hand sanitiser at door. No sign in book. No cert requested. Please keep safe, look after your...staff. You are a lovely venue, but being too risky with staff and customers.More

I ate here when it first opened a few years ago and found a hair in my lemon cake, Informed staff & got an apology but no replacement offer or discount, Which was fine. Returned June 2021 had the Asian Pork Sandwich which was very...tasty but was very small and came with not even a few leaves of salad on the side, Just the sandwich on the plate which was small and pricey. My friend got the lemon cake for dessert & got a hair in it. She brought it in and was told "sorry about that". That was it! Just like my 1st experience! Maybe we were just unlucky!More

I love this place. The coffee is phenomenal. Even the decaff is amazing and the food, especially the breads, are the best you'll ever taste. If I had one teeny criticism to make it would be that their milk is organic and full fat. I...dont drink full fat milk, therefore, I'm not used to it, it tastes too creamy, but the server looked horrified when I asked for semi-skimmed. It was as if the words 'semi-skimmed' might somehow invoke the devil. This means I can't have lattes etc so I opt for Americanos instead. Very small point but would be great to have a choice. Other than that, this place is my favourite cafe in the world and I highly recommend it.More

What an amazing place to eat. Good wholesome locally sourced ingredients combined into delicious meals. A one page menu with enough choices to satisfy most people. It's also a garden center and they have chickens running around which provide their eggs. The service was excellent....Relaxed atmosphere.More

I popped in here a few months ago when passing for a coffee and scone. Both were good. I called again for coffee and saw a chickpea curry on the menu which I got for takeaway to save cooking that evening. The portion size was...enough for 2 and so tasty. Cakes looked lovely I’ll have to return to try again!More

I eat in Woodfield regularly and I always love the food there. The service is great. The only complaint I have is that a lot of the time they run out of bread/guacamole/etc.

Decide to treat the kids to breakfast. We ventured to Woodfield as I had heard good reviews and hadn't been before. The cafe itself is lovely, nicely decorated. The menu had some nice choices however everything was priced separately. For example we ordered pancakes for...the children and were charged for the sugar and chocolate sauce as extras. In total the bill came to €60 for 3 pancakes 2 scrambled egg and bacon and drinks. It made for an expensive start to the day.More

I love everything about woodfield, the food, the staff and the location. Definitely a winner. The smokey bean, pea guac and kale is the best breakfast ever if not the poched eggs on sourd toast. The coffee and cakes are dreamy..
