We enjoyed our two night visit to the Ferrycarrig, well located about 7 km from Wexford on the banks of the peaceful River Slaney .
Our room and bathroom were spacious and comfortable and equipped to four star standards, apart from the soap and shampoo containers bolted to the wall and limited flat storage. In-room WiFi was free. The view from our balcony was peaceful and the general atmosphere relaxing, except late on Sa when wedding and partying guests created a lot of noise in the public areas (although we didn't hear it in our room).
The hotel looks ideal for a family, with extensive leisure facilities and play areas.
Breakfast is an adequate buffet in a well-designed restaurant with good views but its presentation lacks elegance. The table d'hote dinner was ok but expensive and it didn't quite fulfill the expectations suggested by its somewhat pretentious menu.
All the staff we met were exceptionally friendly, professional and willing to help. Especially at our departure, the front desk seemed undermanned for the volume of work it had but the one person there battled on cheerfully.
This is not a luxury hotel but it's a genuine four star and a good choice either as a base or a destination. Recommended.
