I recently took Irish Ferries from Dublin to Cherbourg and came back to Rosslare on Stena Line. In truth there was not much to differentiate the two companies. Irish Ferry's boat 'Oscar Wilde' was more of a cruise ferry with good choice of restaurants, sports...More
Having booked far in advance, to travel from Dublin to Cherbourg on 29 December, I visited the Irish Ferries site a few days ago to verify the times had not changed and to print my reservation. When I could not find my sailing, I contacted...More
We booked well in advance for the fast service Holyhead/Dublin/Holyhead as the times suited us due to length of travel on both sides. Week before we were due to sail, IF advised that the crossing would be longer and times had changed, thus we had...More
Seen similar reviews around cancellations owing to "bad weather" . We had to pay double price to get same day single, from the same port, docked next door to the Irish ferry Oscar Wilde, departing at the same time but a smooth sailing by stenaline....More
Irish Ferries fast Kat, we arrived at port in loads of time in fine weather, no wind, rain etc to find ferry cancelled, 'due to weather' Real reason,probably not enough bookings to fill ferry and not viable. Had to wait from 11am until mid afternoon....More
The crew were fantastic and the Ulysses ship departed and arrived on time.
She’s a big ship! Great areas onboard and a huge shop.
We upgraded to Club Class and got a cabin. Club Class was great for a place to relax with the best...More

Travelled on the EPSILON twice this week and found it a total nightmare due to the choppy irish sea. The Epsilon is a flat bottom boat so you are guaranteed to feel sea sick. Children and adults vomitting for fun and it was just a...More
Traveling with Irish Ferries is always a pleasant experience, any problems are dealt with quickly, politely and efficiently The speed with which you are placed on and taken off the ship is fast compared to other ferries we have used in the past. We use...More
My wife and I flew to Dublin from Canada took the Irish Ferries Ulysses (return) to Holyhead, Wales. As foot passengers with luggage we found staff to be helpful, directions were clear and seamless. The food/pricing/seating on board was quite good compared to other ferry...More

There’s no reserved seating on Ulysses sadly. You get priority boarding in club class so get there early and get to the club area quickly on boarding . Not easy with children . It’s poorly signposted onboard . Seats at the... More
There’s no reserved seating on Ulysses sadly. You get priority boarding in club class so get there early and get to the club area quickly on boarding . Not easy with children . It’s poorly signposted onboard . Seats at the front go quickly but there’s some roomy areas towards the back. Good luck !!!

Yes, this 'freighter' is definitely not a suitable part of any holiday. I doubt that you will get much satisfaction from Irish Ferries, but they certainly should give some indication at booking time that you will in no way have a pleasant journey aboard this vessel. Maybe they should offer this passage as some sort of extended pub crawl from Dublin to Holyhead - but it would be a long crawl from Dublin city to the docks.
Need help booking ferry-rail ticket Dublin to London (4 Replies)
I want to book ferry-rail tickets from Dublin to London. I understand there are two ferry lines: Stena and Irish Ferries. My intended dates of travel are April 27 (Dublin-London) and May 2 (London-Dublin). On Stena's web site, I am able to see both ferry and rail schedules, but they seem only to originate in England, and I need to begin my trip in Dublin. On Irish Ferries, it appears I can book a ferry originating in Dublin, but I'm unable to find connecting train schedules on their...More

Thank you, Tony. Do you think it's risky waiting until the day before we want to travel to purchase the tickets? It's the week of the Royal Wedding, which is not why we're going to London, but I am apprehensive that it may be a busy travel time.

Bus and Ferry euroline (10 Replies)
Hi, I am looking at getting From Tetbury, England (I think we will have to go to Bristol) to Ireland. Irish Ferries.com shows coach travel and ferry travel can be booked with eurolines for Bristol-Cork. My question is, when the coach gets on the ferry, do you stay on the coach, or can you upgrade to a cabin with beds since it would be an overnight crossing? cheers

this must be the Swansea/Cork crossing, but whichever it is, no-one is allowed to stay in a vehicle on the cargo deck on a sea crossing, you have to get out and the car deck is locked, you cannot even go back for your stuff if you forget something, you also have to book either a seat or a cabin, go for a cabin, its a long crossing.
Transportation from Dublin Port (2 Replies)
I'm arriving into Dublin Cruise Port with Irish Ferries. Was curious about options to transfer from the port to our hotel. I'm aware there is a bus transfer but I'm seeing I would need cash. I'm arriving from the UK and am unsure about ATM options at Port to obtain euros. Any recommendations for a taxi or car service that could be scheduled in advance and take my card as payment? Thanks

There are taxi's wait at the ferry terminal and I would highly recommend a taxi from the port to your hotel rather than the bus's provided by I F. were you coming in via Stena then no problem on their coach's into the city. Best option for currency is to bring a few €uro over from the UK, you can buy € from UK post offices at a decent rate.
