Can you do something regards the signposting to the Port itself? It was a nightmare finding the Port! Plus the Wifi didn't appear to be working at he terminal building. Other than that, service was good. On board was better.

The ferry was full and as we were travelling as apair, we couldn't get a table near the windows. Therefore, we arranged with 2 other motorbikers to get a table for 4. It was more practical to put our stuff. Apart from that, it was very quick and confortable.

I had travelled with friends on the Stena a couple of years ago, which was very good. I had to drive to Kent, so I looked at the super fast ferry from Irish Ferries. The sailing took less than advertised, having docked in 1hr50mins we were 15 mins up the road ahead of schedule as we decided to book Club Class which gave us speedy boarding and departure. The only cristism that I have on the whole experience was the cooked sausages, they were terrible! I will definately travel with Irish Ferries again.

Dublin is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Ireland, located near the midpoint of Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. The city has served continually as Ireland's capital city since mediaeval times. Although the earliest evidence of a settlement beside the Liffey is on Ptolemy's celebrated map of 140 AD, which shows a place called Eblana on the site of modern Dublin, it is as a Viking settlement that Dublin's history really begins. The Norse raiders sailed up the Liffey and set up a trading post on the south bank of the river at the ford where the royal road from the Hill of Tara in the north crossed the Liffey on its way to Wicklow. The Vikings adopted the Irish name, Dubh Linn ("Dark Pool"), for their settlement, which soon amalgamated with another Celtic settlement, Baile Átha Cliath ("town of the hurdles", pronounced Ballya-aw-kleea , and still the Irish name for Dublin), on the north bank.
The union of Britain with Ireland in 1800 increased the need to improve the road route from London to Dublin and, by this time, Holyhead had emerged as the primary port for sea access, mainly due to the fact that it is the closest point on the British coast to Ireland.
The town's centre is built around St. Cybi's church, which is built inside one of Europe's only three-walled Roman forts (the fourth wall being the sea, which used to come up to the fort). The Romans also built a lighthouse on the top of Holyhead Mountain inside Mynydd y Twr, a prehistoric fortress. Settlements in the area date from prehistoric times, with circular huts, burial chambers and standing stones featuring in the highest concentration in Britain.
Holy Island (Ynys Gybi) is blessed with Anglesey's best scenery.
