4-star Luxury Kelly's Resort Hotel
The Aqua Club & Sea Spa At Kelly's
The Ultimate Spa Experience
Bill Kelly is the fourth generation to head up this hotel, and we think it really sums up Rosslare. It has been such an integral part of this beachside location and now international Europort since 1895, that to imagine the place without it is unthinkable. What started, as a small tea-room is now an out and out luxury family leisure resort hotel with the best collection of art to rival any public gallery! We aren't joking. You can pick up the house catalogue, and trawl your way through the downstairs areas, just breathing sighs of awesome wonder at some of the best efforts of Irish and European painters of past decades. Names include David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Miro and Picasso, and sculptures including those of American born Alexander Calder. The collection was started by Bill's parents, and has gone from strength to strength over the years.
Bedrooms are decorated with original paintings too and the two suites, situated on the seaside of the building, with balconies overlooking magnificent beach and port views, are named after painters. The Tony O'Malley Suite is on the third floor - a heavenly tribute to the deceased Irish painter, and his creations adorn the walls. On the second floor, the William Crozier Suite features the brushwork of the man who also painted artwork especially for the Breakfast menu covers for Kelly's formal Beaches and where the originals are also on show. After a night in one of the comfy bedrooms or suites, breakfast at Kelly's brings culinary treats. Sample a variety of dishes starting with freshly squeezed citrus juice, home made muesli and porridge, and top up with a hot selection - from the trad Full Irish brekkie to Kilmore Smoked Haddock and kippers, all cooked to order.
Guests can take lunch or dinner in Beaches, or mosie along to La Marine, the bistro style public restaurant. The Ivy Buffet also provides light meals, snacks and afternoon tea. Executive Chef Eugene O'Callaghan knows his suppliers as if they were family. Hence best Wexford fish picked daily at auction, local meats, and custom grown seasonal vegetables. Kelly's in-house bakery makes bread, rolls and desserts. Head Chef Ronan Dunne offers a more casual affair in the French Bar/Bistro La Marine. Ronan has worked closely with Eugene since La Marine opened in 1997. Exceptional value on the various a la carte menus and great wine list in both restaurants, courtesy of Bill Kelly's family connections with the French wine industry.
Kelly's has a Sea Water Spa with indoor and outdoor sea water vitality pool, thermal suite, rock sauna, pebble walk, salt infused steam room and eleven treatment rooms including a couple's suite and Thai Room. Indulge yourself with Mud Therapy, Rainforest Showers, or a number of massage and skincare treatments, performed by expert therapists. Excellent programme of activities also for adults and children. A family destination.
