Great views from Ferryland Lighthouse. We ordered lunch from Ferryland Picnics, awesome food, use of blanket and picnic basket. Sat and watched whales.

Great stop to an archeological dig site. A close up encounter with NL early history of European settlers. Living history reenactors and a museum with artifacts that tell the story of Ferryland and Newfoundland

We were told about Ferryland/Irish Loop by a server in St. John's and decided to take a tour when we had seen everything in town. A great and scenic drive led to a small town on the sea. You are able to drive up to a grass parking area and then (due to construction) take an approx. 25 min walk you get to the lighthouse. Would not recommend for those who are unstable. Nice lighthouse (not housing anything/open) with rocks that you can climb/walk down to.

Staying at HOME BY THE SEA B&B and meeting with Jo. August 2022. Felt like we were on a plantation. An awesome stay. So elegant and classy line it's owner Jo. The decor was fabulous and so tasteful. It was a privilege to stay here. Am coming back. Would recommend min 2 to 3 nite stay to absorb the ambience, enjoy the gazebo at the beach. The breakfast was delicious! What a great this stay was!

If you are interested in archeology and history the free guided tour of the archeological dig is very well-done.
The hike to the lighthouse has a very long uphill section, not very accessible for anyone with any mobility challenges. To get to the lighthouse you must park and walk up the long hill. The surrounding scenery is beautiful.

It is not very picnic friendly despite the option of getting food from Ferryland Picnic website as there is no shade and no place to sit. At the visitor centre it was necessary to bring some chairs outside from the museeum lecture hall to find a place in the shade to eat. Best to get sandwiches in St John's and bring them along.

Manna Bakery on the way out of town has great sandwiches and salads to go, but expect a bit of a line-up and wait for the made to order sandwiches.

We stayed in Ferryland for 3 nights. We walked to the lighthouse twice, once with fog and the other with the beautiful sunshine! Lovely place to visit, locals are all very helpful and friendly.

We dropped in to take the drive out to the lighthouse on our trip around the Irish Loop. I fully didn't expect the scenery to be so beautiful! We didn't walk all the way out to the lighthouse as we spent too much time just taking in the view. We also visited the nearby giftshop.

I enjoyed Ferryland so much that I took a second trip out the following week, and was pleasantly surprised by two whales swimming just offshore. Absolutely must see!

While your in Ferryland it is a must visit to the lighthouse. A beautiful spot to just sit and look out onto the water. They serve picnic lunches out of the lighthouse and they are delicious. During the summer you should have a reservation but we visited in September and were able to purchase one without a reservation. I highly recommend this.

We went to the point on a clear sunny day with light winds and a blue sky and under such conditions nothing beats a visit to the Ferryland peninsula and Lighthouse. The visitor center was closed for the season but you can still visit the Peninsula and learn a lot from the many displays along the way. You can drive on a gravel road almost 2/3 of the way to the Lighthouse but must hike the last ca. 1-2 km to get the spectacular views of where the ocean meets the rocks. But WOW it is worth the hike.

We drove out on the gravel road as far as we could. We weren't able to take the walk to the lighthouse because we were running out of time driving the Irish Loop and had to get back to Bay Bulls for a dinner reservation. But we had excellent views from the parking area and the gravel road, including spotting 3 minke whales near Crow Island to the south. We'll go again if we return to the area, and will do the walk and the picnic lunch.
