... a ferry across the Irish Sea to Ireland. It took four hours to get there. After docking we travelled to Waterford through beautiful countryside arriving at 8 pm. Got to our room after dinner at 10.30pm and it is still daylight. Off to bed for an early start ...
... us thoroughly enjoyed the tour. And some of the things they have made for awards etc are just unbelievable! I bought a tiny little bud vase with the Waterford engraved on it! It was also our morning tea stop - the most amazing cakes we have ever seen! We only had a coffee as breakfast was on,y a couple of hours before! Michelle our guide missed breakfast to have cake but she didn't tell us! So if anyone does a Waterford tour save yourselves for ...
... Jim and Wendy cacked themselves. This bloke was quick as and he managed to send up every nationality in the pub: French, English, Welsh (mainly sheep jokes), American and German. But not Australian ("You can't offend Australians...They just don't give a ****") When he asked if there were any Germans there, and got yells from about 15 people he said, "I've got a bone to pick with you people. ...
Left Tralee at 10 in the morning after making myself a sandwich for lunch on the bus, after Stephen insisted that I make one, and started my journey towards Waterford. Six hours and two bus changes later I finally reached my destination. I'm glad I had that sandwich because the bus was running behind schedule and I wouldn't have had time to get something. Even though I'm sitting on my bum for a prolonged ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ferrycarrig Hotel
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.
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.
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.
