"Ireland - Liverpool & Liverpool - Ireland"
Reviewed 18 October 2014 by Dawn
I have travelled this route a couple of times now since moving to Ireland. I love this journey, its relaxing and also I could not believe that you are given a full breakfast and tea, coffee all day long, and then a dinner before you disembark, and it is better than some hotels I have been in. The staff are very good and very polite. I would recommend this way of travelling and I also get a cabin so I can relax even more. P & O are a great service and I always book with Direct Ferries as they are very competitive .

A relaxing and peaceful crossing. Food good, facilities good, lack of wifi was a pain but other than that a good service

I travelled on the older ship which is not as modern and does not have the same facilities as the European Endevour, however it is still a relaxing and stress free journey. I travelled on the morning ferry after travelling 4 hours to Dublin and had a cabin which was immaculate, spacious and really comfortable. For me if you have the time (8 hour sailing) it's the best way to travel. Staff were very pleasant and helpful.

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.
