- ABOUT US -
We are thrilled to offer our guests a unique camping experience that combines the best of both worlds – the natural beauty of the outdoors with the comfort and amenities of a luxury vacation.
Ferry House opened it’s doors initially in 1992. The founders John and Sonia had a vision of people worldwide connecting to Ireland and what it has to offer through their ability and experience in hospitality.
Their daughter Lisa subsequently took on their vision and started to run the business.
Our glamping campsite is located in the heart of a mixed deciduous Irish forest, surrounded by natural beauty and just 50m from the Greenway entrance to Waterford (Currently under construction, but expected to open before the summer months).
At our campsite, we are committed to preserving the natural beauty of the area and take pride in our eco-friendly practices. We believe that camping should not come at the expense of the environment and strive to minimise our impact on the surrounding ecosystem. Our passion for hospitality, travel and meeting people from all over the world is what drove us from the beginning, and it continues to push us each year.
- HISTORY -
Founded on a family homestead within renovated stone buildings, the idea was bring a unique guest experience. The house was originally built as a coach-house and inn over 300 years ago. The house barn and stables were restored in 1992, resulting in a open-plan facility, surrounded by beautiful gardens, overlooking the River Barrow.
