The service we received from booking the travel to returning back home was excellent. On both the outward and inward journey the boat sailed and arrived on time. The cabins were clean. The food was good but most of all the the staff on the reception desk and dining area were very friendly and pleasant. I would certainly travel with P & O on this route again. The only negative comment I would make is that the announcements which were made when we were in the dining room which I assume were in case of emergency were unclear in terms of quality of sound. Thank you.

This was my 3rd crossing between Dublin and Liverpool with P&O and each one has been impossible to find fault with. Staff are friendly and helpful, food is good and facilities are basic but good. I always rent a cabin and manage to sleep for half the journey, well worth the extra €€ for the comfort and convenience of being able to take a shower etc. I would definitely recommend P&O, great value for money when booked far enough in advance.

Having booked a cabin we ate a quick dinner and settled down to sleep. The cabin was basic but clean and suited out needs. I would definitely having a cabin for an overnight crossing.

I want to thank P&O for our easy travel over to Dublin from Liverpool, which was quite an experience. We could not get our camper van to go, the battery had gone flat. (we had forgotten to unplug the fridge) but without question the staff on the European Endeavour helped us to get the van going and because we were out of sinq. coming off the ferry we were escorted to safety and all with a very friendly smile and banter to lighten the load. Everyone was just smashing. Now to add to that, on our return we needed to come home early because Sue's partner had passed away and obviously we needed to get back. The staff on the same ferry gave us a complimentary cabin and made sure Sue was comfortable and had her privacy whilst grieving and travelling home, they made sure both of us had all we needed and again with a smile at all times. I cannot fault any of the staff at any time and I hope they get to read this, but just in case there will be a written thank you in the post for them. We will travel again with them any time.

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.
