Riverside Park Hotel Celebrating 20 Years in Business



“The 20 year anniversary marks an important milestone for the Riverside Park Hotel as we look back on our incredible journey to date.

Colm Neville owner has continually invested in the Hotel to improve the product and service offered to its customers.  When The Riverside Park Hotel opened as a 3 Star Failte Ireland Hotel in 1998 it had 60 bedrooms, The Promenade Bar, Moorings restaurant and Ballroom. Over the last 20 Years the hotel has transformed into one of the finest 4 Star hotels in the South East, with 100 Bedrooms including a Penthouse Suite, Junior Suites, Couples Deluxe Rooms, state of the art family rooms and Leisure Club with pool, kids pool, sauna, steam rooms and Jacuzzi.   The hotel now offers its customers a variety of dinning experiences from The Prom Bar, Moorings Restaurant and Alamo Steakhouse. 

The last 20 Years the Hotel has grown its conference business starting with one meeting room in 1998 the hotel has developed and now can offer up to 700 Theatre style and has an offering of 5 conference rooms and has catered for international and national conferences.

Over 2000 wedding couples have celebrated their special day at the Riverside Park Hotel, what better privilege in our 20 Years as to Win South East Wedding Venue of the Year 2017 and Wedding Coordinator of the Year 2017.  The Ballroom this year has seen a complete transformation with mood lit ceiling, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful River Slaney, pure tranquillity.

 Jim Maher, General Manager of the Riverside Park Hotel over the past 20 Years is very excited about the 20 years in business- “We are really looking forward to celebrating this milestone. It is with great pride that we have grown our employee numbers from 60 to currently over 200 and to be able to have 6 staff that have being here since the very minute the doors open until today, Head Chef Dave Anderson, Chefs Tom Croke,  John  Roche,   Mary Pepper and Bar Supervisor Caroline Rowe is a great achievement.  Jim accredits the success of the past twenty years to the hard work and dedication from all the staff, as well as the loyal support of our valued customers.
