The Druids Glen Hotel & Golf Resort includes the Druids Glen golf course, which has hosted four Irish Opens and is nicknamed the ‘Augusta of Ireland’.

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.

It sits on 339 acres of land and has 145 bedrooms. It also contains a spa, health club and eight conference and event rooms.
