About The Hotel
We got married in St. Mullin’s, a tiny village in South Carlow, and spent the first night of our honeymoon in White’s Hotel in Wexford. That was in the old days, and the funniest part of the whole event was that the Bridesmaid got a double bed, the Best Man got a double bed, the other couple with us got a double bed, but even though a bottle of Champagne had been sent to the Bridal Couple’s room, we were allocated two single beds, and we were two embarrassed to ask for a double!! That is all a very long time ago, and the fabulous 4 Star White’s Hotel is now a super dooper imposing contemporary emporium visible as you cross the bridge into Wexford and very much at the heart of the historic and buzzy town’s social life.
The modern day Whites of Wexford has every possible facility one could want, and the location is absolutely brilliant, right in the heart of Wexford’s fabulous old streets, which are lined with interesting shops, cafes and bars. The hotel’s Tranquility Spa and Thermal suite is the perfect place to crash out and renew yourself – not to mention the 20m swimming pool and gymnasium. There is also a Cryotherapy Clinic, the first hotel in Ireland or the U.K. to offer such a facility. Cryotherapy reduces recovery time from muscle strain and injuries, and also gives pain relief in illnesses such as Arthritis.
There are 157 contemporary guestrooms with big beds, crisp, sleek and modern, plasma TVs, complimentary Broadband in Superior, Executive bedrooms, and Suites. There is also WIFI in public areas.
As I say, there is always a buzz in Whites, where there are two bars, The Library Bar and the Central Station Café Bar. They do a daily carvery at lunchtime in The Library and there is also an a la carte bar menu available after that until 9 p.m. The Terrace Restaurant overlooks the Courtyard where you can also sit outside during fine summer days. The Terrace is bright and airy and offers excellent food and good prices. Main courses include dishes such as grilled fillet of salmon with vegetables and saffron cream or pot roast shank of lamb served with carrot and spring onion champ and a Bordelaise sauce. Stir-fried duck has confit of duck with water chestnuts, stir-fried vegetables and noodles, spicy sauce and prawn crackers. They also do an excellent panache of Wexford seafood incorporating fresh mussels, prawns and salmon, with locally caught white fish, cooked in a light prawn sauce.
There is always a lot to do in Wexford and at White’s. Look out too for their Special Offer breaks.
Here’s to the Boys of Wexford – they do a great job.
