The new Amber Suites sees a further investment in the Amber Springs Hotel of over €6 million and is not the last project planned for the resort with the addition of a new garden view lounge, expanded kids and wobbler playroom and extension to the existing family restaurant to begin later this month.

Officially opened by Minister of State Michael D’Arcy TD, he said “The Amber Family Suites shows a significant and further investment in the tourism sector in North Wexford and with it brings further employment which is extremely positive. The Dens are excellent and truly innovative in hospitality.  What parent wouldn’t love their kids close by while giving them privacy at the same time?  Hats off to the Redmonds, it’s clear to see they know their market!  Recently recipients of two significant awards for Ireland’s top family destination hotel, the Amber Springs really is helping to put Gorey on the destination map and at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East.  Well done to all involved!”.

The first of their kind in Ireland, the Amber Family Suites have an open plan space of 55 sq metres with an internal kids den that has a private area where the children can sleep and play while the adults get to relax in comfort! The Suites will have WiFi, smart TV’s, mini fridge and larger family bathroom with walk in shower.

The best bit is the family get to stay together, like a fun family slumber party, in a luxurious, spacious and contemporary designed room with exclusive access to this new wing.

Also within the new wing are the Amber Family Corner Suites which are open plan rooms with all of the comfort, space and luxury of the Family Suites within one enormous space.

A great addition to the hotels current rooms, the price point sits comfortably between the current family rooms or choosing two interconnecting rooms.

The Amber Springs put a huge emphasis on the family market with strong investment in family facilities including an outdoor park with go-karting, mini golf, pet farm, playground and the Amber Village where seasonal events are held.

General manager Eibhear Coyle, “Year-on-year we strengthen our family offering and have a strong focus on providing the best experience for guests of all ages from toddlers to grandparents.  We see the new wing of family suites will really cement our position in the family hotel/resort sector as one of the leading hotels in Ireland for our international and domestic guests.”

“In the last 24 months we have opened two new restaurants – our Italian garden pizzeria and FARM Steakhouse, an adult only outlet that serves the most delicious steaks using beef from our own hotel Redmond Farm.  As a property we have also won the Best Family Destination Hotel at the Destination Ireland Awards, the Best SPA Team at the recent Irish Beauty Industry Awards, Best Hotel Restaurant in the South East, a Bord Bia Origin Green award for Redmond Farm and an Sustainable Restaurant Award (SRA).  All in all its been a busy time!” he concluded.
