Good Trip, I don't understand why the food quality is so poor and so expensive.

The ferry trip was as goo as a ferry trip can be. Hi-light on both journeys was the staff in the food hall. I think the guys name was Andrew. He bought out food to us and there was a slight mix up with what we ordered. He bent over backwards to fix the food and offered complimentry drinks to us for a few rounds, which was unexpected but showed he really tried to make the journey good for us. I would CERTAINLY use this ferry company again

I was a bit nervous at fisrt beause I didn't know the company, but the Ulysse from Irish Ferries is a decent liner, cafés, restaurants, it's all good, there even is a movie room… The crossing is 3 hours long even in the middle of the sea.

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.
