Our 4-star cabin on deck 9 was showing some wear. It was smaller that what the pictured showed. We never could get the WiFi to connect and it was only working in the public areas on deck 7, so you could not work in your cabin which is what we were lead to believe. The crossing was smooth and the... More

The good is that the ride was smooth and on-time. The bad? Constant kid screaming and wailing. Shuttle busses from main building to ship. Crammed full. No place for carry-on luggage except on your lap...maybe. No warning. Small elevator that can handle 2-3 at a time. If you have bad legs, not much choice. Bathrooms reek. Food pricey, but surprisingly... More

I travelled with Irish Ferries from Dublin to Holyhead. I made a mistake with my booking but the staff fixed it up for me with no extra charge. Made my day. Thank you Irish Ferries.

The Rosslare to Pembroke ferries were clean, on time and the staff were of a very high standard in terms of professional courtesy. As we took the late night crossing on the way back some of the food in the restaurant was looking a bit tired. I booked a 2-person cabin for around £32 and it was definitely worth the... More

I traveled, as a foot passenger, from Holyhead, Wales, to Dublin via Irish Ferries and loved the experience. The ship was enormous and beautiful on the inside. The journey was so smooth and very comfortable in the lounges. There are plenty of options for food & drinks and also shopping aboard. I will definitely travel with Irish Ferries again.

While planning my trip to London, I found a website describing a wonderful train trip. The author described in detail the beautiful sites to be viewed from the train, culminating in an actual castle. Then a few short steps and the fortunate traveler could board the ferry for a luxurious trip to Dublin. A longer trip than the plane,true, but... More

Travelled from Holyhead to Dublin on the Jonathon Swift. Crossing was smooth and went quickly, with just over 2 hours at sea. Our disabled passenger was well looked after, although the only lift on board could only take 1 passenger at a time so the queue to return to cars was long. Returned on the Epsilon and you could feel... More

I took a beautiful ferry Holyhead -> Dublin. The boat itself was in incredible shape and the ~3-hour journey was blissful and well-priced (as part of a RailSail deal). However, I must note: 1) The signage in Holyhead was not great (however, the locals were of course helpful). 2) It was not as clear as it needs to be that... More

Day trip 20th August to Dublin from Holyhead. If your parking in the long stay car park, don't. Park on the side road 30 metres before the entrance, housing estate and free, walk into the long stay car park and catch the free shuttle bus to the terminal. The Swift was fast and stayed in Club Class for the journey.... More
