IF YOU’RE LONGING to escape to the countryside, but don’t want to be far removed from everyday amenities, Ferrycarrig Lodge is likely to appeal.   

Located a five-minute drive from Wexford town, Ferrycarrig Lodge sits on 0.75 acres and boasts views of the River Slaney and the countryside from every room. 

The five-bed property spans three floors, with a self-contained apartment at basement level.

On the ground floor, an L-shaped living and dining area with timber floors is to the left of the hallway. There are views of the river from here from a large bay window, while a feature fireplace with a natural stone surround adds a cosy feel. In the dining room, double sliding doors open to a balcony which overlooks the river.

To the right of the hallway there’s another living room. This space is notably more modern and bright, with tiled floors and a wood-burning stove. Double doors open from here to the kitchen and breakfast room, where there’s ample storage space, a feature green splash back and marble and tile worktops. Picture windows overlook the rolling countryside for peaceful breakfast views.

Outside, there’s a patio and balcony area to the side and the front of the residence, while mature trees and plants are scattered throughout. Steps lead to a feature decking area which overlooks the river and a beautiful stone bridge, making for the perfect place to spend a warm summer evening.

While Wexford town is just a short drive away, the N11 is conveniently located nearby for journeys further afield.
