Child Friendly Family Holidays

Going on holiday is one of the most exciting events that any family can do together. In fact if you look back on your childhood some of the happiest memories are playing in the surf white sands under a lovely hot sun. At Southbeach these smallest of details are important to us because we know they are important to you.

Southbeach is highly regarded as the best located self catering property in Rosslare.  We offer a perfect Board Failte approved 3 star family experience and is truly a home away from home. Just step outside your back gate at Southbeach and we promise rolling waves and sand dunes as far as the eye can see.

It’s important that the kids will really enjoy their travel experience and also have some great stories to tell their classmates about their family holiday adventures but it’s also important that you as parents can relax and unwind in a child friendly environment. As proud parents and even prouder grandparents ourselves we understand what’s important in a family holiday.

Southbeach was customised and purpose built to meet your holiday needs. Offering only 6 apartments in total it is a tranquil and boutique holiday location.

Rosslare and in particular Southbeach is an outstanding family friendly location and has a wide array of advantages that are unrivalled anywhere else.

What is a holiday without adventure? The area surrounding Southbeach is a treasure trove of places to see and things to do. Step back in time at the Irish National Heritage Park or the Dunbrody Famine Ship, marvel at the wonder that is the Hook lighthouse or wander around the ancient Viking settlement that is Wexford Town, all within a short drive.

Ask yourself what length of journey can you cope with when going on your holidays? This will vary dramatically depending on the ages of your children but we all like to keep it as short a journey as possible. Southbeach is only 2 hours from Dublin and Cork which is very manageable short distance for an enjoyable family holiday. The village is also served well by train and bus. Now there’s a thought!
