Welcome to the Whitford House Hotel, Wexford

Doing the little things well (since 1964)

COVID-19 UPDATE - Hotel & Leisure Centre Closed until 19th Arpil 2020 or as directed by Government

Updated 24/09/20

It is with regret and with a heavy heart we have taken the very difficult and unprecedented decision to close Whitford House Hotel from 8pm 15/03/20  until April 19th 2020.

The Covid-19 corona virus is proving a most challenging event on a worldwide scale and it is a given that each and everyone of us play our part in the prevention of the spread of this virus and thus preventing further fatalities in our country.

The Whitford team have worked strenuously over the last few weeks to implement sanitation and best practice procedures to ensure the safety of staff, patrons and suppliers.

We have such an incredible team at Whitford, one of the very best teams in this land of ours, and it is a privilege to work with such enthusiasm, passion and dedication on a daily basis. We are so conscious that some of our team may have family members with lowered immunity; the health and safety of all our staff, our patrons and suppliers is always paramount in our estimation.

Today it is essential more than ever to recognise that we are all in this together, kindness, respect, patience and politeness will see us through these very challenging times.

For your support over the years we are so grateful, Whitford’s existence owes itself to that very support, on behalf of the Staff, Management and the Whitty family a sincere thank you to the people of Wexford. You have always had our back and we shall never forget this. This is an evolving situation and together we can overcome the challenges of today and tomorrow. Until we meet again, please take care, we wish you and your families good health in the coming days and weeks, our health is our wealth.

Yours sincerely

James, Eilish, Gerard and Ronan Whitty
