“VERY PLEASANT STAY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We recently had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at this lovely hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We upgraded to a superior room on the 5th floor (adults only floor) and had a wonderful room in 506 which was a very large quiet room away from the noise of weddings etc. and had a fabulous balcony overlooking the grounds and water. We were really lucky to have fab weather during our stay so really enjoyed sitting out in the balcony in the morning and on the bar terrace in the afternoon . We had dinner in the hotel on the first night, which was only ok, but breakfast was very good. The staff at reception were lovely, very helpful and provided us with some great options for dining out etc. We really enjoyed our stay here and would happily return there in the future at some stage.

Room Tip: Choose room 506 if you can - worth the extra money.

Dear Reviewer
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I was delighted to read your comments and to learn that you experienced a very pleasant stay with us. It is great to hear that the sunny south east lived up to it's billing and delivered the sunshine. It is most reassuring to have such positive feedback about the staff and I will ensure that this is conveyed to them.
We look forward to having you back in the near future.

We enjoyed 2 nights in this hotel and were very impressed by the staff, particularly the receptionists, the bar and restaurant staff. They were very friendly and polite and worked hard attending to everyone. Overall we thought the hotel was lovely and the entertainment provided was very enjoyable too. Other hotels and staff could learn a lot from how ye deal with people and for top customer service.

Thank your for expressing your opinion following your stay with us. I was very disappointed to read of your findings and please accept my apologies for our shortcomings. I am very concerned to learn of bad housekeeping standards as we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and indeed have won numerous awards in this field. I again must express my apologies for the chair incident and I can only say that this was an accident that unfortunately occurred.
I do hope that you will give us an opportunity sometime in the future to regain your confidence.

We had booked the wrong date for our stay (just a one night stop after getting off the ferry) but luckily there was one room left.We were warned that there was a wedding but that it was the other end of the hotel, not so it was in the middle and not that far from our terrace, The music stopped at midnight but the guests continued their party on the balcony of their room till well past 3.30am so I did not get much sleep. The mattress was also hard. The food was mediocre but not expensive.

Thank you for reviewing your stay at the Ferrycarrig. I am glad that we were able to accommodate your overnight stay however I am sorry to learn of the negative impact the wedding had on your relaxation and sleep. I am surprised to learn of the mattress being classed as hard as we are frequently complimented on the sleep quality. I will be giving your grading on food my immediate attention as this result needs to be bettered.
I do hope that you will consider returning to the Ferrycarrig sometime in the future.
Kind Regards

We were part of a group staying at this hotel . We were treated with great courtesy by the very busy staff from the initial welcome on checking in to the cleaner who supplied us with extra slippers . The hotel was so busy with two weddings taking place that weekend .
The restaurant was excellent with an extensive menu, service very good .

Room Tip: Great views of the river Slaney from all rooms

Stayed for one night saturday the 24th. Hotel is spotlessly clean, layout is unusual but it leads to fabulous views! We had dinner in the bar and it was lovely too. Not too far from wexford town and the irish heritage park is only down the road. Highly recommend this hotel, our view was gorgeous only missing a bit of sunshine! The pool/ leisure area were great, clean and nice decorated. Would definitely go back, would be nice to spend more time here.

This hotel has breathtaking surroundings,wonderful food and friendly staff. It doesn't matter whether its a wedding or just popping in for Sunday lunch the food is consistently tasty and makes you want more. I got married in Ferrycarrig three years ago and would still get a friendly hello from the staff to this day. The bridal suites are like stepping into a piece of heaven if only you could spend a few days locked away in one.
