  • "Holyhead to Dublin"

    Superb ship with plenty of space to wander and enjoy your crossing. Seating was plentiful. Entertainment for the kids was brilliant from watching a movie to attending craft room for balloon dogs and toy swords to tattoo's. Also the ship had play areas for children to fully enjoy the experience which curious george made an appearance. Driving on and off the ship was quick and easy.

  • "Disabled traveller"

    I travelled with my disabled father and was really impressed with the level of help we were offered. The staff in all areas from check-in to boarding made sure our journey was easy and trouble free. They even saved us some seats on Swift as they knew we would be last up to the deck (they boarded us last to ensure we were next to the lift). An excellent trip, thank you.

Holyhead Guide

Located on Holy Island, which at one point was connected to Anglesey via the Four Mile Bridge, the town of Holyhead is the largest town, and port, in Anglesey, Wales. A local philanthropist in the mid 19th century, however, funded the building of a causeway, "The Cobb", which to this day carries the main road and railway to and from Holyhead. There are many places in the town centre to eat with all the usual shops and facilities you would expect to find in a town of its size. There is also a cinema and theatre. Holyhead is often used as an overnight stop to, or from, the port and as a result there are many different places to stay that will suit all budgets. Around Holyhead there is excellent fishing, golfing and sailing facilities. Couple this with the wonderful scenery, walks and beaches and you can easily lose yourself and relax for a few days.

The Port of Holyhead is a bustling ferry port which operates services to Dublin and Dun Laoghaire in Ireland. The port is also the main gateway for land transport from northern and central England and Wales to Ireland.
