Over priced transport means to and from the UK. Prices inflate in the peak time, which seems to be all the time.

I have been on the Stena Adventurer a few times and have been happy every time. The sailing is quite smooth and the on-board facilities are very good. The business lounge on board is well worth the fee. I am travelling to Liverpool in January and have chosen the Stena Adventurer over flying with Ryanair even though they are the same price due to the overall experience on board compared to Ryanair

Sticking with Stena Line is worth it. I tried Irish Ferries once, but Stena is definitely better.
Out of the two boats on the Holyhead route, the Adventurer is the best because it has a very large Stena Plus lounge.
I barely travel by plane anymore as the boat is simple, on time, hassle free, comfortable and has great staff, particularly this vessel.
Could do with somewhere to properly lie down though in the plus lounge. Although the day sailings are only a few hours, you do often have to be up early to get them and have a long drive the other side.
Couple of hours sleep would do wonders.

Smooth crossing which is always a plus on the Irish Sea, taking the car allowed us to take all we needed for the trip, none of the 10kg weight limits you get on the budget flights.

Food, poor and expensive.

We would use Irish Ferries again.

Outbound: Holyhead to Dublin. A very pleasant start to three days in Ireland. The upgrade at £16 pp was well worth it. Similar to an airport private lounge. Crisps and wine/soft drinks uk papers. Hot food cooked to order was basic and pricey. Large portions, so 1 sandwich is sufficient for 2 people.
Return: morning sail from rosslare to Fishguard AVOID. Midships, space was cramped and noisy due to kids running riot. Not relaxing at all. Limited facilities and very slow (free) wifi (throughout ship)
