"Great self catering lodges and lovely hotel"
We are just back from a week in mount Wolseley and would highly recommend the lodges for a family stay. We stayed in lodge number 16 and it was recently redecorated to a high standard (as far as I know the hotel are redecorating all the lodges).
The hotel itself is great with a swimming pool, games room, beautiful grounds and a lovely spa. The games room is a bit dated but they had a pool table which my son absolutely loved. They also have an Xbox and you can get games from reception. There is another playroom for younger kids too. The spa is gorgeous and Jessica was a credit to the hotel. All of the staff that we dealt with during the week were so professional and nice.
We only ate in the restaurant for a breakfast buffet yesterday morning and it was great. We ate in the bar on 3 of the nights and the food was great. It’s has a very relaxed atmosphere and they catered for children. It worked perfectly for us.
There was plenty to do within about a 20 minute drive of the hotel (rathwood, Huntington castle, Altamont gardens, visual in Carlow) which made for a great holiday.
Every year we travel in Ireland for a week and have stayed in other hotels with self catering (Parknasilla, faithlegg and Castlemartyr) before and mount Wolseley was very reasonably priced and great value for money.
I would highly recommend the lodges for a family holiday.
