The Perfect Stop Between Car Travels: Hylands Burren Hotel


One of the advantages of traveling through Ireland by car is that you get to see the country as the locals do. Aside from typical tourist destinations, your car drive can take you to equally beautiful and culturally significant attractions that won’t be included in the typical commercial tour. To complete your car travels through “authentic Ireland” you can even choose to stay in smaller inns run by locals— Like Woodland House. Woodland House is just a one mile car drive away from Adare village in County Limerick. This family-run hotel (it’s been with the Fitzgerald family for generations) exudes relaxed comfort, and the award-winning service immediately makes you feel welcome—like a long lost relative rather than a mere customer. The Woodland house also has very classy interiors and modern amenities. The guest rooms are large and beautifully furnished—and for tired travelers at the end of a long day’s car drive, the soft beds are a welcome sight. Some of the rooms even have whirlpool baths, while larger rooms are also available for family groupings. The Woodland house has also received awards for its restaurant, the Brennan Room. They use only the best of local produce to prepare traditional Irish country fare. Another of its restaurants, Timmy Mac’s, has a menu of traditional home cooked dishes, and offers outdoor barbeques and lively night-time entertainment such as traditional Irish music sessions, to Irish dancing and storytelling. This is exactly the kind of “authentic Ireland” that you can only get through hiring a car—aside from being able to reach various historical destinations, you can experience Irish culture. There are a number of activities available just a mile’s car drive down the road. You can go horseback riding, play a round of golf at the championship courses of Ballybunion and Tralee, or visit the various boutiques and bazaars. However, these are only accessible through car travel—so be sure to hire a car before exploring the region.
