61a. Ballyhack and the Passage East Ferry

SCENES from Southeast IRELAND

The RING OF HOOK - places to visit

The Hook Peninsula, County Wexford

Ring of Hook Index

Passage East is in Co. Waterford and Ballyhack is in Co. Wexford, so the ferry is an important 'shortcut' crossing point between these two counties of southeast Ireland.

The car ferry from Passage East on the western shore of Waterford Harbour (Co. Waterford) to Ballyhack on the eastern shore of Waterford Harbour (Co. Wexford) from which you can set off to tour the Ring of Hook and Hook Head (see page 25. This ferry is really important and saves a lot of driving time and mileage which ensues if you have to drive north to New Ross, cross the River Suir and then drive south to the Hook Peninsular. You don't usually have to wait that long, there are up to 120 crossings a day!

The 16th century Ballyhack Castle, a fortified tower house, is straight ahead.

Ballyhack Castle

The 16th century Ballyhack Castle, a fortified tower house, is straight ahead.

 

Right: Ballyhack Castle is located on a steep slope in a commanding position overlooking the estuary of Waterford Harbour. The castle consists of a large fortified tower house probably built ~1450 by the Knights Hospitallers of St John, one of the two great military orders founded at the beginning of the 12th century at the time of the Crusades. (See also 61b. Templetown)
