They claim that their all-in prices compare favourably with the low-cost airlines, where the advertised price is rarely the price you end up paying. With Irish Ferries not only are there no surcharges, you can take all the luggage you can cram into the car!

Irish Ferries operate two ferry crossings between Ireland and France and two between Ireland and Wales. From Dublin they sail to Holyhead, while all their other crossings, to Pembroke, Roscoff and Cherbourg, depart from Rosslare in south-east Ireland.

The Holyhead to Dublin ferry crossing uses both a conventional ferry and a fastcraft ferry. The conventional ship, the Ulysses cruise ferry, takes 3swift ferry holyhead dublin hours and 15 minutes for the journey, while the fastcraft, the Jonathan Swift, gets from Holyhead to Dublin is just 1 hour 49 minutes!

The other ferry routes from Pembroke to Rosslare, Cherbourg to Rosslare and Roscoff to Rosslare are all served by modern conventional ferries. These ships are highly specified with all the facilities to help make your journey as much fun as possible. To find out more about what each ship has to offer visit the page for your crossing.

The ferries from Rosslare to Cherbourg and Pembroke sail all year round, except for the Christmas period, while the Rosslare Roscoff ferry crossing operates from mid-May until towards the end of September.
