Tower Hotel 4 StarThe Tower Hotel and Leisure Centre in Waterford is delighted to announce that it has been upgraded from 3-star to a 4-star rating by Fáilte Ireland. Located in the heart of Ireland’s oldest city, the Tower Hotel and Leisure Centre has recently completed a massive renovation project which includes all 134 bedrooms undergoing a full refurbishment.

Since early 2018, the hotel has received a landmark investment that has enabled them to completely upgrade all areas of the hotel and leisure centre. This includes an extended and stylish new lobby with atrium, plus a beautiful refurbishment of the Ardmore Suite Ballroom and adjoining Ardmore Lounge. The new upgrades to the ballroom and lounge make the Tower Hotel a perfect wedding or conference location suitable for parties of all sizes.

Additionally, as part of the refresh there are two newly opened dining outlets for guests and locals to enjoy. Hobson’s Restaurant, overlooking Waterford's quayside, serves locally sourced, seasonal cuisine. With its central location, great views and elegant setting, the restaurant has become a popular dining destination in Waterford with a new à la carte menu created by the talented Head Chef, Joe Doherty.
Pier 37 Bar & Grill with views overlooking the Marina, is Waterford's favourite place to meet, eat and enjoy live music. The bright and spacious lounge provides informal surroundings to relax and enjoy a drink with everything from speciality coffees, scrumptious afternoon tea to cocktails on offer as well as a variety of hearty and healthy snacks and meals. The full bar menu is served daily from 12pm to 9pm.
