Ferrycarrig Lodge is quite literally steeped in local folklore, having been built from the locally felled pitch pine timbers of the old Wexford Bridge, which straddled the River Slaney a hundred years ago. Many of the exposed beams visible at the Lodge once formed part of the bridge. A Failte Ireland Four Star Bed and Breakfast with breathtaking views of the River Slaney, local woodland and green fields, we offer a relaxed, friendly and tranquil atmosphere that you’ll never want to leave behind. Whether staying for a week or just overnight on the way to or from Rosslare Harbour, Ferrycarrig Lodge presents a picture-postcard perspective of Ireland that will stay with you forever.
The local area has a history of settlement dating back millennia, with evidence that the first settlers in Ireland were based around the shores of Wexford, due to their relative proximity to the UK and Europe. The Vikings and the Normans were once very prominent in Wexford, evidenced in the many remains of early settlements and artefacts that have been uncovered through the ages. Wexford’s history is one of struggle and upheaval, but is also a story of the locals’ ability to adapt to new peoples and include them in their way of life. This welcoming spirit lives on in Wexford today, and Ferrycarrig Lodge is proud to be part of this tradition.
