What is Ireland's favourite family-friendly stay? The place you think goes the extra mile for its family visitors?

Winner: Kelly’s Resort Hotel & Spa, Rosslare

Kelly’s is “simply the best” you said. “It caters for everyone’s needs.”

It’s “the perfect place for a family getaway. Kids will be entertained and you will be dined!” It’s got “the best kids’ club”, as well as “direct access to Rosslare beach”, “super customer service” and staff “who go out of their way to look after every member of the family... especially little ones.”

The Rosslare hotel offers “a warm welcome” and “really goes the extra mile”.

Of course, Kelly’s is about much more than happy kids. Its spa, wine lists, food, activity programmes (from cookery demos to golf clinics and ballroom dancing) and art collection would all sit happily in a five-star hotel, and the family that run it are the crème-de-la-crème of Irish hospitality.

You ranked Bill Kelly (below) highly in our ‘Face of Irish Hospitality’ category, and his daughter Laura is the latest generation to sparkle in a south-eastern gem that is at once an institution and a relentless innovator.

“It’s a family run hotel, a family friendly hotel, and it’s renowned for its food and facilities,” you said. “It’s a place families return to year after year.”

"Kelly's is a jewel of the Sunny South East.”
