    Travelled out to Dublin on the 3.5 hour ferry. Ordered pizza which was very expensive, hard and tasteless. Would definitely take a pack-up next time (which we did for the return journey)

    We travelled on the Dublin Swift recently with our car and it was such an easy and comfortable trip. Very quick vehicle loading and unloading and plenty of comfortable seats for the quick (2 hr 15 min) trip. Variety of food and drinks available too.

  • "Use of Flexi ticket "

    Contacted you to change my ferry time but you replied you couldn't help needed to be done by Irish Ferries. Spent the day trying to resolve this (poor Internet access where we were staying) couldn't contact IF by phone. In the end you did resolve it but the wait in-between was quite stressful

  • "Very handy and suitable for families "

    We took the boat to Dublin from Holyhead at the end of August for my brother-in-law’s wedding. We were travelling as a family of 3 so it was very handy to pack all of our belongs in the car, without having to worry about baggage claim etc. We took the boat from Dublin back to Holyhead yesterday, which was a slightly quicker journey.  My only critique would be that there wasn’t much for little children (my son is 2) to do, so he was a bit bored. Overall a really pleasant experience and handy for family trips, with lots of luggage.

  • "First trip to Ireland by Ferry"

    After deciding that flying and booking a hire car cost more. Decided to take my own car. After a hectic journey from the south of England with delays missed the ferry going out but no problems booking for the next one out that day. Pleasant bording of car both ways and then to relax on ship.

    We hadn’t traveled by ferry for a long time so we’re a bit apprehensive. Needn’t have been. All the way from boarding through to disembarkation was a smooth efficient experience. The facilities on board were very good and the staff helpful. Would recommend if you’re considering a trip to Dublin!
