Description provided by property
The Ferry House is located in New Ross
Built as a Coach house and Inn in the 18th century. The house and gardens overlook the River Barrow where counties Wexford and Kilkenny meet. Long before a bridge crossed the river a ferry operated from here. So the name- Ferry House!
Recently restored to include the Coach house, Barn and Stables we have opened the door to guests again! Ferry House now accommodates up to 20 people (in a beautiful garden setting).
Old stone walls, pitch pine beams unite with modern facilities. A great location to tour the Sunny South East of Ireland.
Barn: Loft-style bedroom (sleeps 4) en-suite(2 shower rooms). Converted Stables with separate outdoor access -
1 Double and single en-suite, 1 Twin en-suite.
Guests can avail of the private sauna on request.
In a courtyard setting the Coachouse is another element to this property, which sleeps up to 8 people.
This is a wonderful retreat house.
