​​​​​​5.2.6 Woodstock

A Local Area Plan for Woodstock was first prepared in 2008 and extended in 2013 in anticipation of developing the estate. Under that plan no significant development occurred.  A business plan was prepared for the Woodstock estate in 2018 (in conjunction with Coillte), which set out a vision of transforming Woodstock into a major tourism and recreation flagship project for the South East.  It is a 10-year vision to transform Woodstock into a high-quality regional park as follows:

  • Woodstock House & Gardens Visitor experience centred around the gardens and house & interpretation
  • Woodstock Resort a 5-star glamping, lodge and recreational vehicle (RV) resort
  • Inistioge village A carefully curated resort village experience with better parking, ground transportation, orientation, retail, accommodation, eating and drinking options plus interpretation of the village’s rich history of monastic, trading and other themes.

Through the Outdoor Recreational Infrastructural Scheme (ORIS) works have been completed on upgrading the forest walks.  Further work on opening up the Woodstock estate as a recreational amenity in conjunction with Coillte will be carried out over the coming years.

Woodstock Objective
