Irish Ferries - Rosslare Roscoff ferry crossings
Rosslare Roscoff ferries with Irish Ferries.
Irish Ferries' crossing from Rosslare to Roscoff in north-western Brittany operates
from mid-May to the end of September. The Rosslare Cherbourg route is served by
the luxurious vessel the Oscar Wilde, which alternates this crossing with its year-round
ferry crossing between Rosslare and Roscoff.
The ferry departs from both the French port of Roscoff and the Irish port of
Rosslare during the afternoon. The crossing takes about 17 hours, so you spend a
night on board and arrive at your destination late morning. Check for up to date
for the Rosslare Roscoff and Roscoff Rosslare ferry.
The Oscar Wilde really is a cruise ferry, and sailing on her seems as if you
are on a cruise - a far cry from the ferries of old. She is fully equipped with
all the facilities to make your ferry journey as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
To pass away the time there are two cinemas showing the latest releases. The
children have their own play area with films, games and books, while there is shopping
for the grown-ups.
The Oscar Wilde boasts a waiter service restaurant, a steakhouse, and several
bars plus the Gaiety Lounge which features live entertainment in the summer and
the Merrion Lounge where you can enjoy some relaxation.
After all this activity you can retire to your comfortable modern cabins. There
are 2 bed and 4 bed cabins, all with ensuite as well as a small number of cabin
Rosslare is easy to reach being just off the main road between Dublin and Cork.
Roscoff is perfectly placed as a jumping off point for the rest of Brittany and
France, with a good road to nearby Morlaix where you join the dual carriageway towards
Rennes and Nantes. Or of course you can just stay around and enjoy the wonderful
scenery in western Brittany.
