The stunning 4 Star Ferrycarrig Hotel in Wexford has launched a brand new Gourmet Escape; it is the ideal opportunity to enjoy a luxury break this Autumn.Autumn is one of my favourite times to get away as hotels are less busy and comfort food is always on the menu.
Boasting one of the most inspiring locations of any hotel in Ireland, situated on the water’s edge of the River Slaney with every one of the hotel’s 102 rooms offering a view, Ferrycarrig Hotel is the perfect place to relax and unwind especially if you are a foodie.



Check-in and experience a two-night mid-week stay. Enjoy a sumptuous full Irish breakfast each morning plus a gourmet dinner for two on one evening created by the Ferrycarrig kitchen team who have been awarded two AA Rosettes for culinary excellence 3 years in a row in Reeds Restaurant. Reeds was also named the top hotel restaurant in Wexford and in the top 5 hotel restaurants in Leinster by Restaurant Association of Ireland awards.

The award-winning Reeds Restaurant at the four-star Ferrycarrig Hotel places a huge emphasis on quality produce. Reeds menu is abundant with award-winning Wexford food producers as every dish on the menu features ingredients from local food suppliers. With a brand new menu each season Executive Chef Tony Carty says his ethos is to use ‘local, seasonal, quality ingredients’ and this season’s menu is filled with suppliers from all across county Wexford and the region including Slaney Valley Lamb Rack, Kilmore Cod, Monkfish and Scallops, Pat O’Neill’s Black Pudding, Wild Wicklow Pigeon, Macroom Buffalo Ricotta, Killowen Cream Cheese, Wild Wicklow Venison, Tom Cleary’s organic vegetables, top quality Irish beef and an Artisanal Irish Cheese Selection to name but a few.
