Ferrycarrig Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Magnificent setting looking out over the river, in well appointed dining room, good table separation, attentive waiters but not concerned about our long drawn out meal. Friendly service by staff, including a waiter from The Gambia, and with whom we established a mutual connection. Varied menu, well described, well prepared, and excellent food quality. Comparable with the very best meals we have had this year in resorts such as Westport, Killorglin and Dublin.

A lovely hotel, which helps you wind down overlooking the beautiful lake and surrounds of Wexford. We attended a Yoga Day and the owner gave a really interesting talk on the start-up of the hotel. All credit is due to Liam, who's tenacity saw them through the tough financial crisis. Staff were friendly. A very 'homely' hotel, yet clean and the food was really tasty. Enjoy a break away.

I stayed one night in a beautiful newly refurbished room, with lovely decor, all the amenities and a view out towards the water! A really pleasant stay...I just wish I had more time to enjoy it! The location is good, very quiet, with no traffic noise. The bane food was good and the staff were very helpful.

It was a business lunch as such that turned into an afternoon meeting because the setting was perfect to have a great lunch which was tasty and was served by great waitresses. We ate outside overlooking the river, it was peaceful and an excellent place to have a series of negotiations without being overheard!

We picked the Ferrycarrig Hotel for its location outside the town. But it exceeded our expectations in all areas. Unlike some hotels which only have a few premium rooms with the featured view, all the rooms share the stunning river and estuary views. We were given a wonderful large room with a full sized balcony form which to really enjoy the view. We didn't have chance to take advantage of the restaurants, both of which looked lovely. The hotel had thoughtfully set aside areas for adults who wanted a quiet area away from children. We did however experience the quality of the catering as we had room service breakfast each day. This was plentiful and delicious with 1 breakfast being plenty for the 2 of us. All the staff we dealt with were delightful. All in all, a truly lovely hotel.

Really enjoyed my stay ,I had only one problem with my room ,the shower was terrible ,not enough power and no bars of soap just a couple of small bottles of soap /shampoo on the wall impossible to get soap or shampoo out of bottles .really cheap looking .(Otherwise everything was great ,lovely staff and great food.)

Very comfortable and cosy room with lovely views of the river. Great food and excellent customer service. There was a kettle in the room which was great as I love a quiet cup of tea after a busy day. Fab hotel. This is my second time staying at this hotel and it won't be my last.

Check-in was quick, no fuss, staff very friendly and accommodating. Corridors a little grotty and dated, but we weren't sleeping out in them, so we'll let that slide. It's a slightly unusual layout for a hotel but this doesn't detract from what makes your stay enjoyable, namely the view out over the water and the food in their restaurant. And the staff. We ate in the bar the first night and the food was fine at best, bland at worst. But the night after, we ate in the restaurant and the food was truly amazing and was one of the highlights of our trip to Wexford. Again, the restaurant staff were exemplary and contributed to an overall very pleasant stay.

We stayed in their 'family room' which had a wonderfully comfortable king bed plus 3 twins (2 bunked). Huge room with balcony, very comfortable for the 5 of us, and our kids are teenagers. Bathrooms are newly remodeled and very modern, with outstanding shower that featured a ceiling showerhead plus handheld with terrific water pressure. Outstanding staff, wonderful breakfast. Added plus is an old castle tower ruin on the property which kids can climb on.

We got married in February 2017 in the fabulous Ferrycarrig Hotel. We don’t live nearby so it was very reassuring for us that right from the very start the wedding team were very responsive and helpful by email and phone. The wedding co-ordinators Mary and Frances were very professional and gave us lots of great advice. They and their team were very obliging on any requests we had on pre-reception, room layout, the menu, etc. On the day itself we were made to feel very relaxed, the level of service was top class and the food was fact we have both said we would love to be invited to another wedding there soon just to eat the food again! :) Many of our guests have complimented us on the choice of venue and we cannot recommend it highly enough! Thank you Ferrycarrig Hotel :)
