Adding a review of the Epsilon as there does not seem to be many available! Having travelled to France from Rosslare on the Oscar Wilde, and having read descriptions of an 'Economy Class service' on the Epsilon, we were not quite sure what to expect, but we wanted the convenience of arriving back into Dublin so were happy to give...

Used this service for the first time recently. Only when on board did I find out that a padlock was required to be used to secure the kennel door once dog was inside it. Informed by crew member that I could hire one from customer service desk for £5 (refundable). This was not a problem it's just it would have... More

It's hard to review Irish Ferries because the delivery is so different across the various routes. The Irish Sea routes tend to be pretty basic where the service is much like a low-cost airline: brusque, efficient, not too many rough edges if you know what to expect, and complete with expensive food. The French routes on the Oscar Wilde also... More

Having taken many ferries, we know that the ferry trip can be a true part of your Holiday instead of "something you have to endure until it is over". Unfortunately we perceived two trips with Irish Ferries (France-Ireland vice versa) poorly. Some examples: terribly inefficient and lenghty boarding procedure (5 hours waiting in car in 40 degrees and no access... More

My daughter & I travelled from Wales into Dublin on this one way leg of our vacation. The drop off for our rental car was in the same terminal as the check in for the ferry, so dropping our car was a breeze. The ferry allowed us to check our suitcases, which freed up the space on the passenger deck.... More

You couldnt beat it with a stick if you have a motor. On in jig time, off just as quick. Prices are very attractive and in the summer you literally have to look out the window to realise you are on a ship. The Jonathan Swift is a must if you need to bring your car to UK.

A family of 7 travelling on the Swift from Rosslare to Holyhead. Arrived at the dock stressed, a few minutes before departure time due to getting caught in traffic. The ferry was packed when we got in and I knew it would be next to impossible to get seats together. An employee noticing us travelling with 5 kids pointed us... More
