Caoimhe Visits the Riverside Park Hotel!

Riverside Park Hotel

I had heard a lot about Enniscorthy’s 4 star Riverside Park Hotel so when I arrived from Dublin after a surprisingly short journey (less than two hours),  I was really looking forward to checking the place out. Before arriving I had seen many beautiful pictures of the hotel and its surroundings. I was delighted to have the opportunity to go there and share with you all my stay.

On seeing the stunning views along the scenic banks of the Slaney and the fabulous hotel itself, I knew I was in for a treat.

The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Enniscorthy town and as the name implies, right on the banks of River Slaney. The picturesque Sunny South East surroundings were a joy to take in and probably one of the most Instagram-able places I’ve visited.  Any blogger’s dream.

One thing I had heard about the hotel was that it was home to one of the finest leisure centres in Wexford and for a fitness freak like me I was eager to check this out. I am one of those girls that needs a good gym and pool facilities wherever I stay and the facilities at Riverside Park Hotel definitely lived up to my high standards! See for yourself in the photos I have included.

For a quiet Thursday, the hotel was so busy and the atmosphere was fantastic. I really didn’t expect it to be so lively during the week and it made my stay even better.

 

The Room:

The well-furnished rooms boast a private bathroom, a TV, ironing facilities, free WiFi and 24-hour room service. You couldn’t ask for much more really. You have the choice of a standard room, a family room, a balcony room or a suite.

I couldn’t have faulted anything about the rooms. I felt extremely relaxed and got treated like a queen by the lovely staff.

The Food:

When I visit a hotel – one of the main things I am excited about is always the food. I love the thought of letting someone else take care of all the cooking for a day or two so that I can kick back and relax. I think the key to a good hotel menu is variety and this is exactly what I got at the Riverside Park Hotel.

The hotel is home to two restaurants. The first is The Moorings, which offers classic cuisine – yum. Or The Alamo Steakhouse which offers a wide variety of dishes.  If you are after something a little lighter or more chilled out you can also eat from the Promenade Bar which offers stunning views of the River Slaney and features live music and entertainment. I spent most of my time here admiring the views.

You can also satisfy your hunger without even leaving your room with the 24- hour room service.

For a small fee or depending on the offer you get when you stay at the hotel – a full breakfast is served each morning. For me breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and I loved the selection the hotel had to offer.

All-round yummy meals & amazing value for money.

What to do in Wexford:

If you want to escape the hotel for a little while then you’re in the perfect spot. Wexford is jam packed with fun things to do.  It really is in the perfect location as it places you within a 10-minute stroll of Wexford County Museum. There is nearby golfing, sandy beaches, surfing/boogie boarding, sailing, bicycle rentals, hiking plus much more. So if you want to relax, see the sights or be active, then they have you covered.

Room rates:

Room rates vary and depend on the date in which you book and your preferred time of arrival. You can check them out over on www.travelfinders.ie or the Riverside Park Hotel website.
