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.
The Riverside Park Hotel & Leisure Club is always a popular choice for family breaks in Ireland. The spacious family rooms and family-friendly facilities receive excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and it has continuously been a Travellers Choice winner. I visited a few years ago and was delighted when they got in touch and asked me to showcase their latest family breaks in Wexford this year.
The Riverside Park Hotel has a super selection of family breaks and I love how much is included in their packages. Two-night stays are available during the summer from €341 for 2 adults and 1 child, €365 for 2 adults and 2 children and €476 for 2 adults and 3 children. These include a 10% saving which is only available until the 16th of January.
All of the following are included in their summer breaks:
- 4-Course meal for all the family on the evening of your choice
- Full Irish breakfast each morning
- Family Activity Pass to one of Wexford’s family attractions – see more details below
- Chocolate Treat for the Kids in your room on arrival
- Full access to swimming pool and Leisure Club
Similar packages are available during Easter holidays from €369 for 2 adults and 1 child, €401 for 2 adults and 2 children and €543 for 2 adults and 3 children.
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 designed
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.
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.
Some of the rooms can accommodate four children, and interconnecting rooms are also available – please call hotel directly to book these.
2. There are lots of family-friendly facilities, including a Kids Club
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 will be on every evening from 6pm – 10pm during summer holidays. Children of all ages are welcome, once they are potty trained. There is small charge of €6 for dinner and €6 for club but children are welcome to come to the club without dinner.
There is also a great playground beside the hotel with climbing frames, slides, swings, and a zip wire. Alex and her pal had a great time playing here last summer.
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. Children’s meals included in this offer are standard child-size portions but if, like me, you have a hungry teenager, you can order adult-size portions for an additional €12 extra per person.
A new addition to the hotel last year was the Riverside Coffee Hub which is located outside the hotel overlooking the river and beside the playground, with picnic tables to enjoy coffee, crepes, waffles to name a few of the home baked treats.
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 – it is a super choice 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 two of my own favourite family attractions, Wells House and Gardens and Irish National Heritage Park.

Wells House and Gardens is one of those rare treats that is equally appealing to young and old. The Gruffalo Walk, Enchanted Woodland Walk and Fairy Trail are superb, and there are interactive animal experiences (extra charge) with meerkats, racoons and tortoise.
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. There are Crannogs and Ringfort as well as the organised activities.
The National Heritage Park and Wells Gardens are two of the attractions that is included with your family break at Riverside Park Hotel.
