“Beautiful and Relaxing”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Just spend two nights in The Druids Glen and really enjoyed our stay there. I don't know what it is like during the busier times but It was so relaxing and peaceful in beautiful surroundings. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was good, not a huge choice on the menu but we couldn't have any complaints about what we had in both the restaurant and bar. I found the rooms a nice size, the bath robes and slippers were a nice touch and the beds were so comfortable. Just a couple of small negatives we thought asking 3 Euro for the swimming hat a bit mean for such a hotel, also the price of a pint at 5.20 was a bit steep in the current climate. That said we had a really enjoyable peaceful break here.

Just back from what I can only describe as the best break I've ever had, The Druids Glen is just comple Heaven, and we were treated like lords and ladies, and made feel so welcome, the food was devine, service unbeatable, and we had a problem with our room when we arrived when I say problem we were between two noisey families who were doing a lot of interaction between each other, so we asked to be moved and were accommodated straight away to a different room. I also received a complimentary Bottle of Wine just because it was my Birthday, walk around hotel is just serene. Thank you Druids Glen is all I can say we will be back

I stayed here with my partner for a friends wedding in late December. The exterior and setting of the hotel is fantastic. The room was average but with a good view. The spa and poor were way below average. We had dinner the night before the wedding in the main restaurant. There was a really unruly table of diners with a three year old who they allowed play with an iPhone on loudspeaker. It completely ruined our meal. We gve up half way through the main course and asked the waiter could we finish our wine at the bar. No comment from the waiter apart from asking fir a signature for a bill of 150.

The food and the wedding was good but the service was appalling.

Visited Druids Glen resort again and yet again it was superb. Warmly welcomed back and given an upgrade to a (huge) suite with interconnecting double/double with roll away for the kids. Excellent meal in the brasserie on first night (included in package) and in the bar on second night. Even served the mouthwatering pork I had from the brasserie menu for my wife when we ate in the bar! Rooms are clean and super comfortable, bed in suite amongst the best we have slept in. Swimming pool a big hit with the kids as was the sauna and steam room with me. We had a great time with the fantastic friendly and welcoming attitude of the staff really playing a big part. I would highly recommend Druids Glen not only for a family get away but also a romantic short break or even a shopping trip to Dublin which is only 45 mins away. Thanks to all the staff for making our return visit just perfect.

My husband and I stayed in the hotel for a one night stay this week. We both feel that we need to commend the hotel on a wonderful stay. From the time we rang to book our night right through to the time we left was a pleasure. The staff on reception were so friendly and nothing was any trouble. We arrived earlier than the normal book in time but there was no problem and we were allocated our room. Our room was lovely and spotlessly clean. We had booked an evening meal and the service was fantastic. The waitress who served us was so polite and helpful. She was very friendly without been over powering. The meal was fantastic. The breakfast was also fantastic. Although the restaurant was busy the food was plentiful, well presented and hot.

Over all we had a lovely relaxing stay and would definitely return.

Many thanks to all the staff

No turn down service, no breakfast room cards, food in bar only average - had a vanilla creme brûlée but no taste of vanilla, had worst chicken wings ever with no dipping bowl or wipes. Decor in bar and restaurant not very opulent as you would expect from 5 star. We left and dined in Gordon ramseys restaurant in powerscourt nearby. This was real 5 star luxurious surroundings

Four of us stayed at this hotel for two nights during the month of February. It was a mid-week break that we were lucky to get at a reduced rate. Our first impression was how well laid out the hotel and grounds were. The entrance was well designed and very impressive. Plenty of car parking very close to the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and checking in was done in a matter of minutes. Our rooms were on the lower level and they looked out onto lovely gardens. The rooms are air conditioned. Two queen beds in each room and very spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Large plasma tv on the wall was an added bonus compared to the tiny tv's in most hotels. There were robes and slippers in the closet and tea/coffee and bottles of water in each room. The rooms were very clean and we could not find any fault with them. We heard no outside noise during the night and the room was dark and peaceful - so ensuring a good night of sleep. Breakfast was a feast - full Irish breakfast as well as multiple choice cereals and continental items. Spacious dining room and very obliging staff. We ate in the bar during the evening and though the choice was limited - the food was very nice. Once again, staff were more than obliging and went out of their way to make sure everything was ok. The leisure centre was very busy during our stay as was the spa so we would recommend booking spa early on or even before you arrive. We walked around the grounds and by the river and it was so beautiful. The grounds are very well kept and the golf course runs along by the river. We would recommend the walk as it is so lovely. Altogether the whole experience was top class and we fully recommend this hotel unreservedly.
