Irish Ferries - Holyhead Dublin ferry crossings
Holyhead Dublin ferries with Irish Ferries.
Irish Ferries operate the Holyhead to Dublin ferry crossing with a conventional
ferry and a fastcraft catamaran ferry. The conventional ship, the Ulysses cruise
ferry, takes 3 hours and 15 minutes for the journey, while the fastcraft, the
Jonathan Swift, gets from Holyhead to Dublin is just 1 hour 49 minutes!
is the largest car ferry in the World and can carry 1342 cars and 2000 passengers.
She is a fantastic ship with loads of facilities including restaurants, cinemas,
TV lounges, video and electronic games, children's play area, two large lounge bars, a
shop and a club class lounge. The Club Class lounge offers an extra level of luxury
together with peace and quiet. The sheer size of the ship means there is plenty
of opportunity to wander around and stretch your legs, with plenty of outdoor space
where you can enjoy the sea air and the views of the North Wales and Irish coast.
You might even catch sight of some dolphins!
The Jonathan Swift makes quick work of carrying you across the Irish Sea, but
there is plenty to enjoy onboard this modern
vessel. An upgrade to Club Class gives you access to the Club Lounge with that extra
degree of comfort and fabulous sea views, as well as complimentary refreshments.
The Jonathan Swift offers a cafe and a brasserie, so a meal is the perfect way to
pass the time. As an added bonus you're on and off in no time, with a check-in time
of only 30 minutes.
The ferry terminal in the Port of Dublin is well connected to the Irish
road network. Dublin city is only about a 20 minute drive and the M1 motorway
is just outside the docklands. Or the southern ring road takes you across
the river and away in no time.
Holyhead is at the very end of the A55 on the north of Anglesey. From
here you can either head eastwards through North Wales to England or you
can stay and enjoy the spectacular and beautiful Welsh countryside of Anglesey,
Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula.
