The Fitzgerald woodlands house Hotel was such a beautiful and welcoming family run hotel for the day of our wedding. It was a pleasure dealing with all the Fitzgerald family and friendly staff who went above and beyond on the day of our wedding and on the lead up to our special day.Everything ran so smoothly on the day that we could sit back and enjoy the wonderful ambience in the stunning Fitzgerald suite with our family and friends.All our guests were extremely impressed by the service, top class food and fabulous Christmas decor. The woodlands will always hold a special place in our hearts and it was such a perfect choice for our Christmas wedding.

My wife and I got married in the Woodlands in December 2019. We cannot speak highly enough of the Woodlands and their staff. The whole process was just faultless. All the staff we interacted with were just fantastic. The food was amazing, the venue is second to none and the quality is outstanding. We had a wonderful day and as did all our guests. We will certainly be back for many more occasions to come.

It's quite simple - if you are looking for a wedding venue save yourself some time and go with the Woodlands. David and all the staff go above and beyond. The only thing we had to worry about was enjoying our day! The overhaul in the ballroom looked seriously impressive when we booked but couple that with the Christmas decorations and everyone was blown away by it. The food was second to none and no one went hungry that's for sure. Stephen and Monica deserve a shout out as they could not have been more accommodating. When checking out the next day there was another wedding party checking in and to be honest we both commented how do they do it so professionally day in and day out but it's an easy answer - the staff love what they do. Thanks again and we wish you many more years of deserved success. Eamonn & Katie Wedding Nov 19

Amazing from start to finish - we had our wedding at the woodlands on the 5.10.19. The food , service , staff and management were amazing. They made our day so special and our guests are still talking about how amazing the venue was.

From the minute we walked into the Woodlands while venue hunting, we knew this was the right place for our wedding! Any time we went there we were greeted with the friendliest welcome. We dealt primarily with David but all of the family and staff were so lovely to us. They really know their stuff as there wasnt any questions we had before the day that they hadnt already thought of. The meal tasting alone was worth booking a wedding there for!! We only wish we had had room to fit more in that night! On the day of the wedding itself we were met at the car by David and Mary Fitzgerald...it was like meeting family because they seemed so excited for us and they made us feel like we were the only couple they had ever met! We are still getting calls from people to say that they have attended many wedding in their lives but have never been served such an amazing meal at a wedding as they were that day. The Fitzgeralds really went above and beyond for us and all our guest raved about them. No request from anyone was too big.We did our second night in the woodlands also and the food and service at this was also amazing even though they had another wedding in. There was no case of feeling like they got our business and were done with us. Even on the sunday, after all our guests had left, Mary Fitzgerald invited us to come have lunch before we left. There are really too many things to choose from to explain why this really is a top class wedding venue. If you get married her, or even just pop over for lunch, the personal touch is so evident in all parts of the hotel. All we know is that we have received nothing but rave reviews from all of our guests about the hotel and the Fitzgerald family. There were even guests trying to think up reasons to return so that they could just eat there again! I hope everyone we know books their weddings there in future just so we get to experience another top class Woodlands wedding again!!

We had our wedding in the woodlands in September 2019 and we truly had the best day. We booked our wedding over 1.5 years before the wedding and from the start to the very day itself, the staff could not have been more helpful. The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms are so comfortable and clean. The food is amazing and our guests did not stop raving about it. The staff are super friendly and helpful and we loved the homely vibe. The owners themselves served the dinner to the guests at our wedding which was a lovely touch. I would highly recommend the woodlands to any couples getting married as I truly believe it is the best wedding venue in Limerick. 5 stars *****

The Fitzgerald's Woodlands House Hotel has always been a favourite location for me and my family for family meals and occasions. My husband and I didnt consider another venue when we were choosing our wedding reception venue. As always the Fitzgerald family and the Woodlands team delivered. The food was amazing, the service was fantastic, the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly and the accommodation was fabulous. The function room was recently renovated and it looks absolutely amazing! The garden out the back is beautiful and we got fabulous photos. We cannot recommend the Woodlands House Hotel enough. From the minute we contacted David to the day of the wedding and after, he and his team have been a pleasure to deal with! My two sisters also had their wedding receptions in The Woodlands.. I think that says enough!! 5/5 across the board!

Had the most wonderful wedding reception in the woodlands, they provide an exceptional service and we can't recommend them enough. Owners & all staff so friendly and lovely. Food is AMAZING, venue is STUNNING and they went above and beyond to make our day so special day.

We got married at the Fitzgeralds Woodlands House Hotel last month & are beyond words at the service & quality of food that was provided that day. Nothing was too much trouble for Elaina & her team. Our guests are still talking about how delicious the food was, as well as the high standard of guest rooms & the friendly atmosphere that was provided by staff that day.We are so happy that we put our trust in the Woodlands for our big day & will be forever grateful.
Review by
We would like to thank the staff for our beautiful reception which took place on the 27th July 2019. Elaina, our wedding co-ordinator was exceptional and very experienced. Her positive energy and 'can-do' attitude persuaded us that she will do impossible to make our day special and unforgettable. She was very friendly, professional and extremely helpful. We couldn't ask for a better coordinator. Everything went really well, the decoration, the layout, the welcome, the service, the expertise. The outdoor reception was stunning and we were blessed with sunshine. Dinner was fantastic, we had big portions of food and all the food was delicious, we have guests still raving about the meal and the late night ‘Fitz n Chips’. The hotel staff were very friendly and professional and the hotel itself including the rooms were very clean, many of our guests also used the leisure facilities. On the day David and Mary Fitzgerald were amazing at our reception. We liked outside of Adare village for location and the amount of hotel parking places available for guests. If we could do it again - we would definitely choose the Fitzgeralds Woodlands House Hotel.

We got married on 26/07/19 & we had our wedding reception at the AMAZING Fitzgerald's Woodlands House Hotel & Spa in Adare Co. Limerick & I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a truly fabulous Hotel from start to finish. We dealt with David & from the very start of our planning nothing was a problem for him. We never once heard "No we can't do that". He was so professional & accommodating throughout the whole planning it blew me away. On the day of our wedding , as it is a family hotel, the whole family were around the function room & drinks reception making sure everything went to plan & the service at the meal was exceptional as we had a big number sitting down but again nothing was a problem. Mary, David, Elaina, Richard & Conor were all wonderful & I cannot thank them enough. The Woodlands is well known for its high standard of food & it really surpassed our expectations. One example of this is that we had fillet steak as one of the options for the main course, the staff asked every single guest who ordered the steak how they would like it cooked & for a huge number of guests you might think this is unrealistic that they would all get each steak cooked to the liking of each guest but they did & everyone was so impressed as it was all so delicious, not only that but they went around to each guest with seconds of everything. We also had an entertainer before,throughout & after the meal & again this was not a problem, you couldn't meet a more accommodating bunch. The function room is newly refurbished & really is the most beautiful setting from the stunning chandeliers to the mood lighting & beautiful tables. The Bridal suite was just out of this world, there was a mannequin in the bridal suite for my dress at the end of the night & loads of refreshments on the table which included chocolate dipped strawberries, Yum!!. I could go on for days about how amazing this hotel is especially with Reva's spa there also, what more could you want. I would 100% recommend it for all these reasons & more. We had the most wonderful day here & can't thank David & all the staff enough. You will not regret booking this hotel , trust me.

The Fitzgeralds are a wonderful family to deal with. From the moment we got engaged we knew we wanted to marry at The Woodlands. To us, no hotel can compare in terms of service, food and professionalism. We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day there. The function room is exquisite. Our guests are still talking about what a wonderful location it was. The food deserves a special mention. Superb! Louise & Shane
Review by
Colm and I got married on the 28th of June this year. I had a general idea of what we wanted, with an outdoor arrival reception and a relaxed casual vibe. My husband loves music so we wanted to incorporate this a well. I gave a very loose guideline as to what I was going for and the hotel took my ideas and literally went to far beyond our expectations, it was out of this world. They took our loose idea of a festival theme and turned it into the most amazing garden party arrival reception with a rock band featured on the hill in the garden and the most amazing selection of food and treats to great our guests you could imagine. If you can imagine something or see it on pinterest, the team at the Woodlands will make it a reality and then some! Half of the guests traveled from Athlone and so many people came up to us the following day saying that they had been blown away by the venue, the service and the food that so many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was absolutely outstanding. Every single element was just above and beyond. The new room is amazing and the private garden attached was a fab place for people to relax after dinner. We went with the Rib Eye of beef as part of our meal as well as the Bacon and Cabbage which went down a storm as it was something a bit different. We went with the Fitz ans Chips chipper for our evening food during the dancing and that blew everyone away completely! They also catered for our rehearsal bbq the day before and our after party the day after to complete the whole experience. Service at every occasion along the way was incredible. We felt like celebs all weekend, as did all of our guests and families which made us really relax as we knew everyone was having a ball. If only we could do it all again!

Superior wedding venue - the Fitzgeralds couldn’t have been more welcoming to us and our guests. Nothing was ever an issue. our wedding was everything we wanted and so much more. My only wish is that we could do it all again.

I couldn't recommend David Fitzgerald and the Fitzgerald family who went above and beyond for us for our way day it was everything we wanted. The food was beautiful and well planned out. Everything down to the accessories they supplied. You really couldn't be in better hands. Magnificent hotel
Review by
So professional, and very approachable nothing was a bother to them. On the day it was beyond top class the service, the venue, the food was everything we dreamed of and more. All our guests complimented on how the service on the day was. Looking back on our day/night spent in the Woodlands i would not change a single thing it was the makings of our special day.

Hi David and Elaina, Just a quick note to say thank you very much for everything ye did for Matt and myself on our wedding day. All my family, friends, myself and Matt said that ye made it so special and the food was to die for.

Thank you so much to the Woodlands Hotel in Adare for making our wedding day so special. The lead up to the big day was made so easy with all your help and advice. The warm welcome we received arriving back to the hotel after the church was amazing and it'll be a day that we will always cherish. It was great to see the Fitzgerald family working so closely together and having the day run like clockwork. Any member of staff we had dealings with over the whole weekend were so friendly, professional and helpful. A real credit to you all. We have had so many compliments since the wedding from all our family and friends about the food. Everyone thought it was amazing! We look forward to seeing you all again for the anniversary

The woodlands were exceptional in every possible way from beginning to end, nothing was too big or too small and they exceeded myself and my wife's expectations in every way possible, the food and the service were outstanding and the staff were so kind and friendly and very professional. I can't thank them enough for making our day even more special.. keep up the good work.

Amazing venue with the BEST staff! People are still talking about the food and service at our wedding!so easy to deal with and professional! We had a fantastic experience!HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this hotel!
Review by
I would highly recommend the Woodlands as a wedding venue. We had our reception there on the 3rd August 2018 and we could not fault it in any way. It cannot be beaten for the quality of food and service. Our guests all commented on the beautiful food but also the generous portions and seconds offered on the day. The Woodlands, being a family run business, guarantees that you will get the best service at all times. Elaina was a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too big or small to ask for. We had our drinks reception outside and she was so accommodating and enthusiastic about it. She made us feel like we were the only wedding she was coordinating which is a credit to her, as they such a popular wedding venue with our wedding being one of five in a row that bank holiday weekend. We have been back there since and always get such a warm welcome form Elaina, Conor and David. They simply cannot be beaten for value and service. Trust me you will not regret it if you book it as your wedding venue.

We can’t speak more highly of David, Elaina and the team at the Woodlands. They made us feel relaxed from day 1. There was no request too big or too small that wouldn’t cater for, they were at the end of the phone for any questions we had day or night. The day itself was amazing and 1 we’ll never forget thanks to the team at the woodlands. Without question we would highly recommend The Woodlands to anyone getting married. It is a beautiful setting and the atmosphere created by the team is exceptional.
Review by
We had our wedding at the Woodlands Adare in April this year. David and the team couldn't have done more for us. They were very flexible and more than happy to accommodate any requests or changes. We had a big wedding and each and every guest had only positive things to say about the food and the hotel. They took care of every little detail so we had no stress at all on the day and everything was perfect. We couldn't recommend them enough.
Review by
From day 1 we were so at ease with everything to do with our wedding David and all the Fitzgerald family and staff were always their for us made our day magical
Review by
I cannot praise the staff & hotel enough. I think because it is family run you get the extra special attention to detail. The food is superb & all of our guests were blown away by the quality & amount of food. The staff were outstanding on the day. I would love to go back there & do the whole day again!!! Highly recommend the Fitzgerald's Woodlands House hotel.
Review by
Excellent family run hotel. We were delighted with our choice of venue. They were very flexible with the menu options. Great location, food, atmosphere and David looked after us well. Bridal suite is amazing!
Review by
The Woodlands was the dream wedding venue. David Fitzgerald was our wedding coordinator. He was amazing, he couldn’t do enough for us. He was so easy to deal with. Anything we wanted he did for us, even having someone dress up as a Santa for us. The wedding reception was everything I imagined and more I had a Christmas wonderland theme in my head and that is what I got. The food was unreal. Guests couldn’t get over that they come around and offer you more main course and if you wanted to try another main you could. Even more desserts were offered from the trolley. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The fitz and chips chipper is still being talked about. You can’t beat a family hotel. Mary, Richie, Elaine and David were all looking after us and our guests. They are unbelievable!!! Love the woodlands!!!
Review by
The Woodlands Hotel cater for all type of weddings. We had a wonderful intimate setting in the beautifully and decorated main ballroom followed by a lovely afters! Our wedding suite was like a palace! The Fitzgerald's offer such a homely and professional service and both they and their staff waited us on us hand and foot on the day. Elaina Fitzgerald is a genius at organising the preparations to make it an extra special day for any wedding couple. We found her extremely helpful and so easy to deal with. Many thanks to the Fitzgerald family and staff for helping us make our wedding day so special and memorable.

Vienna Woods Hotel looks like a mini downtown abbey I love the character of the building Michael and his team took fantastic care of us on the day of my wedding. The staff are exceptional, very friendly and helpful, the food is simply amazing and both the bridal suite and ballroom are out of this world! We will definitely be planning many more family gatherings in Vienna Woods!!!!

Couldn't thank them enough forcwhat they did. They really went above a beyond to give us a perfect day from start to finish everything was amazing. Great value and excellent staff you really wouldn't get better anywhere else
Review by
My sister's reception was at the Woodlands a few years ago and I recently made an appointment with David for my own wedding. We left the appointment with so much comfort and knowledge about how our day would go. Nothing was a problem and the plans for the new ballroom look absolutely amazing! The 'Fitz n Chips' afters food option is so unique! I would highly recommend that anyone looking at venues makes an appointment.
Review by
Absolutely fantastic venue. So helpful, friendly and professional. Excellent value for money and the staff are so accommodating. The food is amazing!
Review by
The woodlands did an absolutely amazing job at making our day one to remember. From our initial meeting with Elaina and the team we knew that this was where we wanted to have our reception. I can see why this family business has been around for years as this family definitely know how to ensure that your day goes exactly how you want it and they go above and beyond to make sure that the quality of the service is exceptional. I have often been to functions here so I have always wanted to have my wedding reception here so for me to be able to do this was the icing on the cake to the best day ever! All of my guests have been saying how great the hotel looks, how amazing the food was and how great the staff were at making sure their every need was taken care of. Thanks again to Elaina and the Fitzgerald family and staff for everything that you have done to make our day one to remember.

The FitzGerald family's experience in the wedding industry was so apparent in their professionalism on the lead up and during our wedding day. They know their business well and set you at ease from the beginning. The standard of food could not be faulted, fantastic hotel, could not recommend them enough.
Review by
The Woodlands is an absolutely beautiful venue, but it is so much more. The food is outstanding, the staff are fantastic and the attention to detail is second to none.
Review by
From the moment we met Elaina we knew we made the right decision. Nothing was a problem, she was professional but so easy to deal with. It was without a doubt the best two days of our lives. The food and service were second to none. We would have no hesitation in recommending the woodlands to any future Bride and Groom.
Review by
From starting to make plans to the day after our wedding all the staff could not have done more to help us. The Fitzgerald family made us feel like a king and queen on the day. Even the smallest things that I had not thought of were sorted. The food is exquisite and guaranteed quality every time. All our guests were accommodated and no request was too small. The staff even remembered to include my son in all parts of the day. All our parents were made feel so special as well. If I had to do our wedding again the Woodlands would still be the only venue to be thought about. Our photos on the grounds of the hotel are breathtaking. We both have amazing memories of our day. I can't rate the Woodlands highly enough and all our future family events will be there.
