No sleep, no sympathyfrom X70MJS
Loved the ferrycarrigfrom Xpat11875
The rooms were nice but definitely the location is what makes the hotel magical. Every room has a water view. The bar downstairs has outdoor seating looking over that same fantastic view. We were spoiled with the weather that weekend and we could not have picked a nicer hotel in all of Ireland to stay at in nice weather. The pool is fantastic too ... it also looks over the view! The bar is beautiful and the food excellent. The restaurant was nice ... not fantastic but nice ... but we didn’t feel like we had had an awful experience, just that there was a lack of atmosphere in there compared to the rest of the hotel. Wexford is also a lovely little town with lots to do that you can go explore in.
We are all professionals in our 30s and are quiet used to nice hotels & restaurantsand & out of 14 people in our group (all couples) not one person had a bad thing to say about the place. I am unsure of what some of the less complimentary reviews expectations were but I can tell you that there was a wedding there each night that we stayed also and they didn’t interfere with us in the least … the wedding reception room is off to the side with no bedrooms over it and as for rowdy guests … it certainly was not an issue and I can not see the staff allowing any such behaviour! On that note, the staff were fantastic. Take heart that you will not be disappointed with your stay here.
Excellent, excellent, excellentfrom Mathair
Excellent service at the Ferrycarrigfrom voyager7
Awesome Spa, crap hotelfrom cmartinVance
The hotel restaurant was over rated, we fully expected a top quality meal, the prices indicated top quality - the result was minimal/absent servers and a basic unremarkable meal.
The room was a complete disappointment. Cheap furniture, stained carpet, 1 star fittings in the bathroom. I was shocked at the rate we paid for such a terrible room and was sure that there had been a mistake, that maybe our reservation had been switched. I checked with the front desk, our room at €202 a night was the biggest rip-off I've experienced in Ireland.
Not very happy..from A TripAdvisor Member
What bothered me the most was the fact that we have a 2 year and had told her that we would be enjoying their indoor pool the evening we arrived. We got her ready for a swim,bought the swimmies,pool cap etc and managed to get them all on her. Upon entering the pool we had somone from the pool desk( where we had just bought all this stuff ) come and tell us that they had a policy that children were not allowed in the pool past 6 or 6.30 pm. What a ridiculous policy to have. The pool was empty and after a short argument at the pool desk they decided to " do me a favor " and allow us to use the empty pool for a half hour. If you have children you will understand my frustration. I can`t imagine the reasoning for such a policy particularly when you consider the amount they charge per night. I guess they don`t want to upset the leisure club membership.Absurd !!
I will not stay there again, nor will I recommend them to the thousands of people I deal with in the travel business each year.

Not a place to relaxfrom Ludo
It does have it's good points though. The food and service is very good, although a bit rushed at times. The rooms are also nice. Overall, it is vastly overpriced (unless you get a special offer) and definitely not worth a return visit.

Not relaxingfrom RelaxationEssential
Is how this hotel is advertised.
We took a five night break at the Ferrycarrig Hotel, August 2005, we took a junior suite, and as they say, ‘it was a game of two halves’, the food in particular was very good, the bar meals in the Dry Dock bar and meals in Reeds Restaurant were all excellent, the staff are a credit to the hotel.
The accommodation was very good, but, and it is a very big but, on our first four days there were wedding receptions, despite voicing our concerns on arrival and requests for a quieter room, (sorry there’s nowhere else to put you!) we did not get much sleep for the first four nights at all, between children running up and down the corridors, very noisy adults returning to rooms and the row that went on somewhere on the premises until 5am, this is not a hotel for relaxation. We did notify reception but to no avail, no other room available, fortunately our last night was Sunday and no wedding.
It is unfortunate that weddings completely spoilt our stay because with some sleep and relaxation the Ferrycarrig could be a nice place to stay. We left more tired than we arrived, it did not live up to its advertisement, Ferrycarrig Hotel the peace of Ireland you’ve been dreaming of….sorry but you need sleep to dream
Top Local Tips for Wexford
JFK Park near New Ross Well worth a visit watch out for Tractors on road though can be narrow at times
Sightseeing The Natonal Heritage Park is just across the road from the hotel and is definately worth a visit They have aespecially if you have children. It will keep them occupied for a few hours or more! Pack a picnic and take a raincoat (just in case).There is a tour, audio visual show and a restaurant and gift shop.We thought it was well worth the money.There is a FAMILY ticket available which works out cheaper. Also, to the right of the hotel is an old norman castle/lookout. It has seats and good views of the estuary and costs NIL.
Great restaurant A hidden gem of a restaurant is Fordes on Crescent quay. From the outside is does not look much but go upstairs to the restaurant and you will be pleasantly surprised. The decor is a rich red. The staff are extremely friendly and cannot do enough for you. But the food is out of this world.
