Irish Ferries - Ireland Britain and France ferry crossings
Ireland Britain and France ferries with Irish Ferries.
Ferries have positioned themselves as a value for money ferry operator between Ireland,
Wales and France. 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
The Holyhead to Dublin ferry crossing uses both a conventional ferry and a fastcraft
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!
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.

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.
