Family Lodge & Hotels Experience In Waterford Ireland

Family Lodge Experience


First Impressions

The experience begins with a two minute ferry crossing from Waterford mainland to our private Island - A firm favorite with all ages. 

Located on the outskirts of Waterford City, the spacious Island Resort offers 310 acres to explore, and is an excellent choice for families who want peace and privacy with the benefit of having attractions and amenities such as the Waterford Greenway closeby.

Each lodge offers three large bedrooms, a spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen and a private patio (perfect for al fresco dining!), with many overlooking the golf course.

Island Fun

The private Island at Waterford Castle hotel is host to a range of family activities. The playground is hugely popular with young children, with parents favoring its close proximity to the lodges.

Take time as a family to stroll along one of our Island trails, keeping a careful eye for the family of sika deer and other wildlife such as foxes and red squirrels that call the island home.

Children will also enjoy our new fairy trail with brightly painted doors for them to discover as you venture through the woodland! Eliza the Fairy loves to play with the island deer, although won't be seen by you or I! She keeps a watchful eye over the Castle and those who visit the Island.

The Resort hosts family-friendly activities throughout the year, such as complimentary family movie screenings, treasure hunts and more.

Families can bring their own produce and make meals together in our well equipped kitchens, or take the opportunity to enjoy a casual dining pizza or takeaway from our Kings Channel Clubhouse. Fully stocked luxury picnic baskets are also available with prior booking - just find the perfect spot on the Island to sit and enjoy!
