The Woodford Dolmen Hotel offers a choice of six meeting rooms in a range of styles that spans from classic to contemporary, and is capable of hosting up to a massive 825 delegates.
Suitable for all kinds of meetings, conference and corporate events, our meeting rooms enjoy natural daylight and take advantage of the picturesque views of the surrounding countryside and gardens. Each has been individually designed to accommodate a broad spectrum of layout demands, allowing discussions in both formal and friendly settings.
The purpose-built boardroom creates a serious business atmosphere from the moment delegates first enter. Its centrepiece is a magnificent 23ft dark walnut conference table, surrounded by twenty luxurious leather chairs, providing supreme all-day comfort for meeting attendees. The suite enjoys an abundance of natural light which helps to create a dynamic and invigorating workplace, with dedicated facilities including a built-in LCD projector and an 8ft drop-down screen.
The Writers Suite has the feel of a study in a large country house, while still meeting modern corporate needs. It opens onto a private courtyard which can be set with comfortable outdoor furniture – ideal for time-outs, conference calls or coffee breaks. The Writers Suite has brilliant natural light and revitalising greenery outside, while it also offers access to a large veranda overlooking the River Barrow & hotel’s ten acres of gardens.
The Morrison Suite is a modern, contemporary meeting space which can accommodate up to 100 delegates in theatre-style seating or up to 40 with other seating lay-outs. It benefits from copious natural light and comes complete with a separate area for smaller-scale networking, ‘break-out’ time, and private telephone calls.
The Belmont Suite is a bespoke and multi-functional meeting space that regularly hosts a broad range of events for several satisfied and regular clients. Seating options range from 20 delegates in cabaret-style up to 80 in theatre-style. The Belmont Suite is also available as a private dining area to allow delegates to eat together while breaking from the main business of their meeting.
The Barrow Suite makes the Woodford Dolmen Hotel the largest corporate conference venue in Carlow, as it can hold up to 825 delegates in a theatre-style seating arrangement. It can also be laid out in other arrangements to accommodate attendances in the region of 250, 400, and 500. The Barrow Suite and its recently-refurbished reception area can be accessed separately from the main hotel foyer. The suite itself can be sub-divided into three separate areas, each with its own access. The suite opens onto an extensive outdoor terrace area, with views of the River Barrow over the hotel’s famous red bridge, the Killeshin Hills and ten acres of scenic gardens. The Barrow Suite comes complete with radio microphone, PA system, controlled lighting, and air conditioning. A full bar service and even dancefloor is available if required, for fun after the meeting finishes!
The Killeshin Suite is an opulent and lavishly decorated ballroom which can also facilitate up to 500 conference delegates or 220 dinner guests. It extends to a massive 728 square metres (34.5m x 13.5m) but can be sub-divided into two if you do not require all the space available. The Killeshin Suite comes complete with its own private and comfortable brainstorming and break area, and it also opens out to a spacious veranda with relaxed seating and spectacular views of the Killeshin Hills after which the suite is named. Facilities that come as standard with the Killeshin Suite include radio microphone, PA system, controlled lighting, and air conditioning.
