Reviewed 3 October 2016 via mobile

Raheen Woods was a very good hotel. The room was comfortable, breakfast was very good and the location was close to a number of attractive points of interest. The bar was a fun place to watch a football match and the food was above average. I recommend this hotel to any travelers.

I stayed one night here on business a few weeks ago. It was very easy to find from the motorway, the staff in reception were very friendly, parking was free, wifi was free and a good speed and the bar and restaurant areas were very comfortable. Sleep quality was good too. Don't pass this one by, it's got everything you...

Always an enjoyable stay with a delicious dinner to top it all of. Pool & spa facilities. Comfy clean rooms. All a recipe for success. We are even considering this hotel as our wedding venue. I stayed here while pregnant and staff were so friendly & helpful. A true hidden gem.
