The Druids Glen Hotel & Golf Resort, which was put on the market for €45million, has been sold for an undisclosed sum.

The luxury resort in Co Wicklow includes the Druids Glen golf course, which has hosted four Irish Opens and is nicknamed the ‘Augusta of Ireland’. It was designed by Pat Ruddy and former Irish golfer, Tom Craddock.

The resort also features ‘Woodstock House’ – a club house which was built in 1770 by the Earl of Aldborough’s clan.

Woodstock House has been used by musicians such as Rod Stewart, Mike Oldfield and Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi as a writing and recording base.

The stunning hotel opened in 2002 and has been fully refurbished. It sits on 339 acres of land and has 145 bedrooms. It also contains a spa, health club and eight conference and event rooms.

There are numerous dining options including Hugo’s Restaurant, the Garden Rooms and Bar and Sycamore Lounge.

A spokesman for the resort said: “The Druids Glen Resort has grown year on year and has become one of Ireland’s key destination resorts.
