Ferrycarrig Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at Ferrycarrig for two nights for a wedding reception. All rooms have wonderful river views. The staff is caring and attentive. Breakfast is buffet style with everything you would expect in a full Irish breakfast-and then some.

4 star it is NOT. The staff were very nice and helpful. We had dinner and breakfast at the property and both were excellent along with the wait staff. On the other hand the room was not great, Stains on the carpet, furniture a little dated and the bathroom was grotty. Mouldy grout, paint peeling of the ceiling, cracked tiles, it just felt unclean. We had little sleep, it was very noisy, kids running up and down the hallway, at 3am someone was banging on a bedroom door ( I thought they were going to put the door through) down the hall for at least 30 mins and then at just past 7 was woken again by a member of staff with a loud walkie talkie. The pool was also closed for the day.

Had a ground floor river view room.... Was lovely to wake up to! The room was clean and tidy and had a wonderful rainfall shower, perfect to wake you up! Breakfast was lovely, a buffet style and continental but loads to choose from! Definitely didn't go away hungry! I would recommend this hotel and will be back again myself. Lots of families with children around so seems to be very family friendly. Had dinner here in the Dry Dock bar and were shown to an adult only dining area in the bar which I have to admit was quite nice. The food was very good!

Attended our friends wedding & stayed 3 nights. The staff are so helpful, service, food and views were all excellent. Our superior room 322 had an almost panoramic view over the water and was very comfortable with a balcony. It was cleaned daily and the housekeeping ladies seemed to work very hard on a continual room turnaround. The dry dock bar was great, staff were helpful and efficient. There was a male singer with guitar on the Friday night who was brilliant and we really liked the adult-only room where it was peaceful and chilled. Food was good. They had a HAKE dish on special for lunch which was truly outstanding! (Fish pie/not so great. Bit bland FYI). The food at the wedding was excellent and we were able to check-in an hour early with reception texting us when our room was free. Breakfast staff were really efficient, food was always hot and a decent selection. The views from the breakfast room were stunning even in the rain. We visited Curracloe beach nearby; highly recommend. A very beautiful beach and great walk. Thanks for a truly enjoyable introduction to Ireland. We would happily return.

So we took six rooms and eight family members headed for a two night break. From beginning to end it went really well. The rooms were lovely, with a view of the water from them all. We had nice decking and chairs outside each room. The rooms were bright and airy with everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and greeted everybody when you met them. We had dinner in the restaurant the first evening and in the bar the second. Both were excellent. Shout out to Emmet in the bar for looking after us so well. We also had lunch both days in bar. No complaints from anyone, which is always a good sign. We all used the pool and some the gym. Great facilities for every age group. Lovely to see a hotel so busy and very capable of taking care of all their guests. I am already planning my return visit.

For the last few years we have finished our annual holiday in Ireland with a stay with family at the Ferrycarrig. We have always loved the experience but this year it somehow fell short. We (2 adults, 3 kids) stayed in a family room that was claustrophobic at best. Because five beds fit doesn't make it a family room. It was too tight. The bunk bed was so rickety we had to get one fidgety child to sleep on the floor to enable the other to get to sleep. When we mentioned the problem at our early check out this morning we were informed we should have contacted housekeeping. This is impractical post event advice, when considering we discovered the problem when children were in bed. The hotel is not cheap, it has a great kids club and we were genuinely disappointed to have missed Giggles (always a comedy hit!) so we were surprised that the family room was second rate. In previous years our family room was spacious which is why we're so surprised by the squash. We love this hotel and they excel in many areas, but this year we left disappointed (and tired!).

We stayed in the Ferrycarrig Hotel in Wexford - on night stay in early August. Its only 90 minutes from Dublin and is a really good base to explore Wexford from. Plan was to stay there and then cover the Hook Peninsula and Kilmore Quay the following day. The hotel was very comfortable - really spacious bedrooms and good facilities in the room. The breakfast buffet had plenty of variety and quality of the food was good. Really good Sports Center and Swimming Pool to relax in. Very enjoyable stay - will definitely be back again.

It was only one night but we were so well looked after we wished we could have stayed indefinitely. The room was fantastic as we were upgraded to a suite, the staff were more than helpful and very friendly and the food was good too. The pool and gym facilities were just the topping. Couldn't have been better.

We got married in the Ferrycarrig hotel last month and stayed there for three days in total with a large group of family and friends. Myself, my new husband and all of group could not fault the hotel, staff or food from start to finish. We were so impressed with the friendly and professional way we were all taken care of. As a bride and groom it was amazing to be able to relax and enjoy the time with family and friends knowing that Frances, Gemma, Derek and all of the staff were taking care of everything. We would highly recommend this hotel to any couple for their wedding and anybody looking for a break away with beautiful views, delicious food and a relaxed atmosphere!

Even though the hotel was themed with wedding guests, the level of care for those of us not involved with the wedding was fabulous! The breakfast at the Ferrycarrig is absolutely sensational and you have to give the lemon curd yoghurt a go! It is worth the trip just for that! We met up with friends for lunch and again the food in the dry dock bar menu is just sensational! Thanks to all the staff from the front desk through to the restaurants and everyone in between.
