Family Breaks in Wexford At The Riverside Park Hotel & Leisure Club

Riverside 3-0787

With spacious family rooms, a choice of dining options, and a leisure centre with children’s pool, the Riverside Park Hotel is a super choice to enjoy family breaks in Wexford.

I have featured the Riverside Park Hotel & Leisure Club on my occasions in my travel deals posts – I love their spacious family rooms and their family-friendly facilities. Previous guests agree with me too – it was a Travellers Choice winner in 2020 and is rated as excellent on Tripadvisor. So I was delighted when the Riverside Park Hotel got in touch and asked me to showcase their latest family breaks in Wexford.

The Riverside Hotel has a wide selection of family breaks available. Their summer family breaks include breakfast, a four-course evening meal on the night of your choice, and a family pass to one of Wexford’s top attractions. They also have single parent family breaks – something that I am often asked about.  

As well as great family deals, here are five great reasons to choose the Riverside Park Hotel for family breaks in Wexford. 

1. The superior family rooms are cleverly designedsuperior family rooms at the Riverside Park Hotel, Wexford.

I have seen many family rooms in hotels over the years, but I was really impressed with the clever design in the Riverside Park’s superior family rooms. Not only are these rooms very spacious – they can accommodate two adults and three children, but some have individual TV’s and headsets for children, that hang on a dividing wall in the centre of the room. Some of the rooms can accommodate four children – please call hotel directly to arrange this.

This means parents and children can enjoy their own choice of entertainment in comfort. As well as this great amenity, you can expect tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary mineral water in your room. Superior rooms vary in design and layout – most have the dividing wall, but others are open plan with a separate tv in the ceiling. Standard rooms are also very well equipped and accommodate families of four, but do not have individual TV’s for children.

 

2. There are lots of family-friendly facilities on-site

The hotel’s leisure centre boasts an indoor heated pool and a separate children’s pool, as well as a fully equipped gym and Rejuvenate Treatment Rooms – just incase you fancy a treatment while the kids are playing. A kids club usually runs during school holidays but may not be in operation this summer. However, there are two playgrounds beside the hotel with climbing frames, slides, swings, interactive stations and a zip wire.

 

3. There are three dining options to choose from.

The Riverside Park Hotel has a wide selection of dining options to suit all the family. Choose the full bar menu or daily carvery at the Prom Bar, delicious steaks at the lively Alamo Steakhouse, or fine-dining at the elegant Moorings restaurant.

All hotel restaurants use high quality locally grown produce, and kids menus are available in all three restaurants. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available.

4. Location, location, location

The Riverside Park Hotel enjoys a picturesque location right on the banks of the River Slaney in Enniscorthy. There is a delightful 5km river walk that starts right outside the hotel, and it is only five minutes from the town centre. It is just 19km from the famous Curracloe beach, and within easy access of Wexford’s top attractions.

5. Wexford is full of top class family attractions

We enjoyed family breaks in Wexford on a few occasions and I think Wexford is a great destination for a family holiday in Ireland. As well as six Blue Flag beaches, Wexford is home to Ireland’s only Seal Rescue Centre,  the Secret Valley Wild Life Park, the oldest operating lighthouse in the world – Hook Lighthouse and one of my own personal favourite attractions, the The National Heritage Park.

The National Heritage Park is an interactive open-air museum. It shows how Irish people lived through the Stone Age, Bronze Age, when the Vikings came, right up to when the Normans came in 1169 – my kids loved it. There are many more attractions for families in Wexford, you can see them here.
