Historical Traveler Reviews Ferrycarrig Hotel
Excellent hotel, highly receommended
We stayed at this hotel with our 17 month old baby and we could not have faulted anything to do with the facilities or service. There is a specific room dedicated to parents with babies and they supply a fridge/kettle/microwave for making bottles etc. The staff were excellent and could not have been more accomodating or pleasant. We felt totally at ease with our (sometimes noisy) baby which is contrary to what has happened in other hotels in Ireland. Our balcony door was fitted with a safety gate and travel cot/bedding/blankets were all provided.
Breakfast was excellent and plentiful and we ate in the restaurant on two occasions which was very good. We also made use of the leisure facilities which were spotlessly clean and modern.
I would highly recommend this hotel espcaially to those travelling with babies or young families.
The best experience we've ever had!
My fiance and I stayed at the Ferrycarrig the night of our engagement. The staff was excellent! The staff was extremely helpful and the room was excellent! We stayed in room 418 and we couldn't have dreamt of a nicer place! We plan on spending our 5th year anniversary at the Ferrycarig!
we have stayed here year after year-staff friendly, helpfu. Food excellent. Massage treatments worth the trip alone. Views across the estuary from all the rooms. Would highly recommend the Ferrycarrig
I stayed recently at Ferrycarrig. I had been there a number of times about 5 years ago, the staff were nicer then. I always remember the night guy, unusualy he was an 'older' englishman. He had the chat and the charm to make you feel as if the hotel was just for you. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Now,,,,,,,,the management have no link to the client. It's OK , but I liked it better then.
Loved every second of our stay!
I don't know what our friend from Tullamore is talking about - stayed there with my wife 3 weeks ago and we had a fabulous time! Rooms, views, staff, food all were superb - will go back.... soon!
Stayed during the summer of 2004. Was extremely disappointed with the service and food. Rooms were very nice, as was the bar. However, dinner was exteremly expensive and luke-warm. Staff seem to have a superiority complex, strutting about with their noses in the air. Will not go back!
Lovely views. Friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Nice evening meal.
Loved the ferrycarrig
Lovely Hotel Great views of the Slaney River. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the river its well worth paying a little extra for one of these, our room was spotless and had sliding doors to a good sized balcony, the pefect place to relax. We ate in the Boathouse Bistro and the Bar, the food was very good in both places All the staff were very friendly, lively and fun. They really left you with a smile on your face. We will be back.
A lovely retreat!
I stayed in the Ferrycarrig in February '03 for only one night unfortunatley. We went on a Friday afternoon and only had time to stay for one night but will definitely be returning here. We had dinner in the restaurant that night and I would say we spent nearly 3 hours sitting over dinner and enjoying every part of it without feeling any rush on us to leave and make room for anyone else. The staff were outstanding and the food to die for!! We love good food, and I definitely had the best fish I have ever tasted there. We had a few drinks in the bar after and then retired to our room. We put out the breakfast room service order and that was just lovely and beautifully presented. The extra touches wiht the robes supplied makes a lovley difference. The room had a balcony out of it with furniture on it and although the weather wasnt that nice, we still managed to go out there and have our coffee. Anyone thinking of trying this hotel should without a doubt in their mind and we will definitley be going back and next time, we will be organised enough to stay longer!! I certainly loved it.
Feel in love with the place
I have not actually stayed in the Ferrycarrig but have used it's facilities on many occasions. The staff are the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered be it here or abroad and I was so impressed by their courtesy and friendliness, that I actually wrote to the management of the hotel to air my views, something I wouldn't normally do. As I said at the time, people are quick enough to complain when something is wrong, but slow enough to give praise where it is due.
Don't take my word for it !, Try it yourself, as lots of my friends have and they have been just as impressed with the staff and the hotel.

... Mayor's Wine Vault, dating back to the 15th century when Waterford was the only town permitted to import, among other things, wine - pretty much all ships entering the harbour had to unload at Waterford, so they could control it. Lucky that they were able to import a heap of it as apparently the water was so bad that they only drank wine, including the children!! Then they discovered coffee so had a choice at least – thank ...
... it was getting close to lunchtime and I think I'm over climbing towers now (Damn you Clifford!) so the need for food won out. After lunch I returned to my accommodation to collect my car and head for Kilkenny Castle. I had noticed signs for it on the way to Waterford yesterday but felt I didn't have the time to drop in. It was a really cool castle. Firstly, HUGE!!! Not that size matters of course. The tour guides were really cool. As ...
... on the whole of the Irish Island. It had been a fairly wet day but we were lucky and it didn’t rain while we were there so we got to walk right out on the headland where I had to sit very near the edge for a photo, I’m mighty glad the wind wasn’t blowing or it could have been fatal for me, it was a long way down with zilch chance of rescue.
On another drizzly wet day we visited two castles near Enniskillen. Yes, you’re right we ...
Had a lovely day in Waterford probably longer than we planned. Went to the museum which explained the fascinating history of the place and how prominent a role it played in the religious fight between the crown and the Catholics. It didn't pay to be nobility on the wrong side of the king It was really interesting but I won't inflict text on you here, just leave it to the photos
next we went to the Bishops Palace which ...
... three stories high and tells the history of the Vikings in Waterford. Next on the agenda is the Medieval Museum which has the amazing Chorister's Hall that is 5 metres underground and would make the perfect wine cellar, as well as robes and parchments from across the era's. Next stop is the most important one of the day…we find ourselves in Elvery's sport store where Paul acquires his most searched for GAA jersey!!! It's ...
