"Holyhead to Dublin with Irish Ferries"
This was not my first Irish Ferries ship. A couple of years ago I travelled from Fishguard to Rosslare and was very impressed with the ship. This time my first impressions from the Rosslare ship were again confirmed. Irish Ferries are clean, pleasant, offer all one could wish for in the way of on board services and despite that have competitive prices. The staff are helpful and friendly - what more could you ask?

"Always Book The Cheaper 4 Hour Ferry!"
I enjoyed my sail across in the Dublin Swift but upon return I was told that the Swift was unable to sail due to weather conditions. Being August the ferry charges are at their highest so I am disappointed that we never got the difference in booking costs not returned to us. So my advice is to not make your booking on the Dublin Swift but save yourself some money and book the ordinary ferry.

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.
