Lodges at the castleI wasn't aware there were lodge rooms outside the castle, so be aware not all rooms are in the castle. So read the details to make sure you know what you are getting. Dinner was amazing and would recommend, but I felt breakfast was over priced for what you got. We did the falconry while at the hotel ...

Pocket Guide: Family Friendly Hotels in Waterford

Waterford is a city in the south-east of Ireland, located on the banks of the River Suir. It is popular with visitors since it manages to combine many of the aspects that give this particular corner of Ireland enduring drawing power. The city is genuinely rich in history, being the oldest settlement in the whole of Ireland, having been established by Viking interlopers in 853.

This history isn’t merely an interesting fact on paper, it’s apparent in the very fabric of the city, in particular in the buildings and layout of the oldest part of the city, the Viking Triangle, an area close to Parade Quay on the banks of the river. Stay in a hotel close to this part of the city, particularly any of those positioned along the length of the river, and you’ll be within walking distance of medieval buildings and a trio of first class museums.

Accommodation in Waterford

The number of people visiting Waterford every year has given rise to a thriving hotel scene, and the range of accommodation on offer is such that finding a family-friendly hotel is a relatively simple matter. It doesn’t matter whether you want a country house hotel on the edge of the city with easy access to the surrounding countryside or a small bed and breakfast or guesthouse right in the centre, on the doorstep of the kind of museums, galleries parks and activity centres that kids love, you’ll be able to find a room that’s exactly right.

Family Fun in Waterford

The centre of Waterford is packed with parks and other public spaces ideally suited to letting kids run off a little steam. The Waterford Nature Park is a 50 acre oasis of natural calm to the south of the city centre by following the waters of John’s River away from the Suir. The park combines nature trails, play equipment, integrated wetlands and wildflower meadows that are designed to encourage the presence of various forms of wildlife.

In the centre of Waterford you’ll find the People’s Park, which offers not only a chance to escape from the bustle of the city, but also a skate park and an artistic water feature.

Family Fun Outside Waterford

Although the centre of Waterford is packed with attractions, the coast is only an hour’s drive away. There are 49 beaches scattered along this stretch of coast and resorts such as Tramore, which is only six miles south of Waterford, offer all the fun of a traditional seaside destination with unspoiled nature that is becoming increasingly hard to find.

The beach at Tramore is three miles long and when the kids tire of playing in Ireland’s highest sand dunes they can take advantage of amenities such as the surfing clubs offering board hire and lessons, or Sea Paddling, which provides guided kayak tours of the waters around the coast. If the weather lets you down, don’t worry, because indoor facilities in Tramore include the Run Amuck play centre, the Pottery Place, where visitors get to paint their own unique piece of crafted pottery, and Splashworld’s heated indoor fun pool.
