Perfectly positioned on an estuary of the River Suir just one mile down river from Waterford City, the Island Resort enjoys idyllic seclusion and privacy, while at the same time conveniently located very close to Waterford City center.
The Island Resort operates a private car ferry providing a constant 24/7 service to and from the Island to the Waterford mainland, with a journey time of just two minutes. The ferry departs every 15mins from the hour from 7am to 10pm, and on demand throughout the night from 10pm to 7am. The ferry is included in the Resort Facilities fee so there is no direct charge for guests or visitors to the Island.
The ferry landing is well serviced by road, with rail and bus minutes from Waterford City. We are located 10 minutes from Waterford City Centre and 90 minutes from Dublin Airport.
Waterford Castle is an ideal hotel for visitors to Kilkenny, Wexford and Cork, as they are all within close proximity for an exciting day trip.
