Sailed from Dublin to Liverpool with P&O after christmas, dispite the 2 hour delay due to the terrible weather at the time. The sail was very comfortable and the cabins were clean and spacious, we managed to sleep through the majority of the crossing. The varieties of food available were very good and catered for everyone's tastes. Tea, coffee and juice was available throughout the sail at no extra cost. I would definitely recommend P&O to anyone sailing from Ireland to the UK in future. The only slight criticism I would have is that after the sail was delayed by 2 hours there was nowhere for people to go only to wait in cars - 3 hours in our case because we had arrived early. The facilities at Dublin port terminal were very basic and consisted of a vending machine and toilets. Over all though an excellent service from P&0.

Very smooth crossing on 27th in spite of heavy storm that night Food, accommodation and service all excellent. Similar on the 2nd which was a night crossing Blankets and pillows provided was an excellent touch. Would be good as well to give an estimated disembarkation time in the arriving city Time of arrival and time disembarkation are very different and would be good to highlight.

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.
Liverpool was a humble fishing village for half a millennium until the spilting-up of Chester and the booming slave trade prompted the building of the first dock in 1715. From then until the abolition of slavery in Britain in 1807, Liverpool was the apex of the slavery. After the abolition of the trade, the port continued to grow into a seven-mile chain of docks, not only for freight but also to cope with wholesale European emigration, which saw nine million people from half of Europe leave for the Americas and Australasia between 1830 and 1930. Some never made it further than Liverpool and contributed to a five-fold increase in population in fifty years. An even larger boost came with immigration from the Caribbean and China, and especially Ireland in the wake of the potato famine in 1845. There's been a renaissance of sorts since the 1990s as EU development funds and millennium money have kick-started various projects.
