The Tower Hotel & Leisure Centre

The Tower Hotel and Leisure Centre, Waterford is located in the Heart of the City. The hotel was recently refurbished with a complete redesign and stylistic overhaul of the lobby area and bedrooms.

The hotel which was purchased by the Neville family in November 2016 is set to be one of the leading 4 star hotels in the country and undoubtedly one of the best hotels in the Southeast once all work is completed.

In July 2017 the Ardmore ballroom and lounge area were completely re-furbished and this was followed in May 2018 when Pier 37 was opened much to the delight of locals and guests alike. Pier 37 Bar & Grill boasts spectacular views over the Suir River. With floor to ceiling windows it is a bright and ambient space to dine whether you are staying in the hotel or just dropping in for a spot of lunch or dinner. Bar food is served all day with an extensive cocktail menu and afternoon tea now available also.

The new Hobson’s restaurant opened in October 2018 and is situated on the first floor of the hotel with panoramic views of the City and the River Suir. Similar to the new bar, the restaurant features floor to ceiling windows and is a stunning, bright and airy space to dine. The restaurant offers a superb Early Bird Menu and A La Carte Menu. 

In January 2019 all of the hotels public areas underwent a complete facelift. The hotel now boasts a spectacular lobby area with an impressive atrium overlooking Reginald’s Tower. All of the ground floor of the hotel have now been upgraded and work continues on the hotel’s bedrooms.

All existing bedrooms are being re-furbished and upgraded and all rooms will be of a 4 star deluxe standard with riverside deluxe rooms and suites. 

The award winning Hotel Leisure Centre has a 20m swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam-room and sauna.

The Hotel is just minutes’ walk from 3 National Museums as part of The Viking Triangle, The Waterford Crystal Visitors Centre, and The Theatre Royal. Waterford offers excellent Shopping, vibrant Restaurants, Lively Bars and Nightlife. The hoe is ideally located on the riverfront just minutes from the Bus and Train stations and just 90 minutes’ drive from Dublin, Cork or Limerick.

Further afield the spectacular Copper Coast boasts the best beaches, from Tramore and Woodstown, all the way to Bunmahon and Ardmore. Within 20 minutes’ drive the dramatic Commeragh Mountains, which offer many different walks, breath-taking scenery and unspoiled landscape.

If you are travelling with a group, or happen to be organising a group, allow the experienced team to help. The hotel can easily organise, station pickups, day-trips, nightly entertainment, and special interest activities to suit your group. So whether you enjoy bridge, golf, indoor bowls, poker, cards or crafts, the hotel can put together an itinerary to suit. The team would be delighted to arrange some group activities e.g. table quiz, bingo, art demonstrations, ballroom dancing, flower arranging, singsongs, exercise classes, or history talks.
