Woodford Dolmen Hotel
R448 / Kilkenny Rd.
Located on the Kilkenny Rd, just six minutes from Carlow town, The Woodford Dolmen Hotel sits comfortably nestled on the banks of the River Barrow and enjoys 10 scenic acres of luscious green surroundings as a result, not to mention the Chef’s own thriving herb gardens. A range of dining options are available, from the Plum Tree Bistro with traditional Irish and international cuisine, to the cosy atmosphere of the Dolmen Bar, all overseen by Executive Chef Laurence Richards. Sunday carvery lunch is served from 12:15pm to 4:00pm (and happens to be enthusiastically recommended by our own team!). Along with an extensive wine list in both Bar & Bistro, the hotel supports local distilleries and craft breweries, while the Dolmen Bar’s own resident mixologist has created a cocktail menu of both new and classic cocktails. Recently refurbished and truly welcoming, the Woodford Dolmen Hotel is very much a place to relax and enjoy after a day of browsing at the fair and somewhere you will certainly want to “make a day of it”.
