Riverbank House Hotel
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Wexford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2017

We spent a few days in Wexford and choose the Riverbank as it was located over the river from the town. The town is still in easy walking distance but the views from the hotel was lovely. This is a very quaint hotel. The reception staff were extremely nice and very helpful. When we checked in they asked if we needed any suggestion for things to do in the area. There are also a large number of leaflets available. The decor of he hotel is not modern, but it is very clean and has everything you need. Our room wasn't the biggest, but it was fine. The breakfast was very good, with a selection of cereal and fruit as well as the option of a freshly cooked breakfast. The bar attached has a fantastic menu with plenty of options. We ate there every night and the food was delicious. There are about 10 parking spaces, with parking across the road. We thought a really nice touch was the offer of cold water when we checked out as it was a hot day.

Excellent service. Started with a couple of cocktails, Yum Yum. Proceeded to a barbecue sent from heaven. Pulled pork and salads to die for. Large crowd of us to cater for. Whole group enjoyed it and can't wait to return.

This establishment is old and quirky and very atmospheric. The place is a hive of business almost all the time, very popular with locals for lunch, supper and dinner or just drinks. In my opinion it's a lovely hotel. Someone I recommended to visit told me the chowder was tinned, I can't say for sure but we've had it on numerous occasions and we love it. Portions of food are more than generous, we often just have 2 starters but we enjoyed a smashing lamb dish this visit and it was out of this world, honestly, delicious. As for the rooms, they are lovely and spacious and the linen is lovely but it's a little tired, especially the bathrooms which I feel could do with updating, they're very small but they are clean. Don't expect 5 star but do expect lovely staff, really helpful, plentiful tasty food in the restaurant and the location across the bridge is perfect for a nice stroll across into town. Until this year we'd never actually stayed at the hotel but as I say rooms are spacious and clean with small tired bathrooms but it certainly would not put me off. Thank you for such a lovely friendly stay.

Across the bridge from the city of Wexford with lovely waterviews over to the city. However there are no lifts so be prepared to heft your luggage up narrow stairs. The rooms do not permit two suitcases to be open at the same time. The rooms are charmingly furnished. A keen gardener works here welcoming travellers with candles midst pots of colourful plants.

Room Tip: The waterviews rooms are quieter than you expects

Stayed here last weekend with my girlfriend, having done minimal research we did not really know what to expect, when we arrived at the hotel we both were a bit apprehensive as the exterior does not look the most appealing however we were completely wrong. This is a great hotel

The man who checked us in on Saturday eve was extremely friendly and chatty and we were staying in a room on the second floor. The room had a huge bed and was spotless, nice bathroom and great views of the water. The decor in the hallways and room aren't the most stylish but we were still very happy with our room

We had dinner in the restaurant Saturday night in the hotel and we were both very impressed with the food and once again the young girl serving us was very nice.

The hotel is in a great location and is only a quick walk across the bridge to the town centre.

We were given bottles of water when we checked out and this was a nice touch especially in the heatwave we were experiencing at the time of our stay

Overall we were very impressed and we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.
