The Passage East Ferry Company Ltd operates a continuous Car Ferry Service across the historic River Suir linking the villages of Passage East, Co. Waterford and Ballyhack, Co. Wexford. Our ferry is a very important link for tourism and business operators as well being very popular as part of a day trip itinerary for many people on both Waterford & Wexford sides of the Suir estuary.

With easy access to Waterford City, Dunmore East, Waterford Greenway in Waterford and New Ross, Duncannon and the Hook Peninsula there is an abundance of things to see and do. The service operates every day with the exception of 25th & 26th of December. We operate a continous shuttle service sailing approximately every 10/15 minutes from either side and with over 100 crossings per day "You won't have long to wait".
