Family Breaks Cork

Enjoy a holiday with the family this year and stay at the family-friendly Clayton Hotel Silver Springs.

The Perfect Location

The hotel is ideally located close to many of the local family attractions such as Fota Wildlife Park, Blackrock castle, and Shandon Bells. Local open farms such as Rumley Farm and Leahy’s also offer a fun day out for all the family.

For the culturally curious families can head to Crawford Art Gallery, now open on Saturdays and Sundays. Enjoy tours of the gallery and workshops for families.

If you have seen the city and would like to venture elsewhere why not take in the pleasant scenery of nearby Cobh. While in Cobh why not take a guided tour of the Titanic experience or take a boat out to Spike Island where you can take in some Irish history. If you would like any help for times or booking of these tours don’t hesitate to ask the reception team.


Swimming Pool

Located on the grounds of our hotel is District Health and Leisure. This newly fully refurbished centre offers you a 25m pool plus an extensive gym which is kitted out with state of the art Precor equipment.

The leisure centre is a 2-minute drive or 5-minute walk from the hotel and offers complimentary car parking. Residents of Clayton Hotel Silver Springs can enjoy access to this fantastic facility for a reduced fee of €10 for a Single Pass and €15 for a Family Pass (i.e for 2 adults and 2 children with an additional price of €10 per child for extra children).

Opening Hours:

Monday to Friday 6 am–10 pm (children can access the pool until 7 pm)
Saturday and Sunday 8 am–6 pm

– Lane Swimming takes place on Tuesday and Thursday mornings until 7.30 am so it is probably best off to avoid with kids at this time.
– Hats must be worn in the pool and can be purchased at reception for €2.50 along with other swimwear if required. €2 coin is required for the lockers and towels can also be rented for €2.

Beauty District Salon

Beauty District is also within the centre, promising a memorable salon experience. The highly qualified therapists cater to all beauty requirement and offer a wide range of Elemis treatments. The Hairdresser at the Beauty District Centre is available Tuesday – Saturday.
