Haven't been with Stena for a while and was impressed, Albeit the ferry wasn't packed it was well layed out and the cabin facilities were very good( was able to get a sleep in although the tanoy can't be avoided I suppose and a little shake on the ladder for the top bunk was soon rectified by my self) Shower was hot and powerful staff friendly and helpfull, all in all very good and you get that extra 15 mins grace in the morning from Dublin compared to I.F.

"Dublin to Holyhead"
Reviewed 02 September 2014 by Anonymous
When approaching Dublin on the N4-M4-M50 signs for Dublin ferry port are a disgrace causing stress which spoilt my holiday! Clear ferry port instructions need to be sent with bookings. How do passengers know to go north or south, ended up coming via Crock Park and guess what no signage! Oh the paying tunnel is clearly marked! The was a skeleton staff on the ferry, not all catering facilities were open only on one deck....the ferry was clean and staff friendly . Only the signage to the ferry port was a problem

My wife and I had been travelling for an extended period of time and had accumulated an excess of luggage and our dilemma was solved when we were recommended the ferry to hollyhead. We got a taxi from our hotel in Westmoreland st and were on board within the hour with our luggage in the hold . On arrival at hollyhead we got our luggage o ff the carousal and straight to the car hire company, on our way in under one hour. The whole operation was painless,a lot better than air.

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.
