I found the trip to Dublin from Holyhead a breeze; far simpler than I was expecting. And it was a luxurious and comfortable trip compared to flying. Plus I could purchase my Ireland travel guide on-board It was terrific, and I'm scared of travelling by sea. I'd recommend it.

The return trips were pleasant. I thought it unusual that only the outward journey to Ireland had a security check for luggage. I arrived slightly late to embark at Holyhead but was rushed through in an efficient manner. The ships facilities on both journeys were good. Decent films to view. Internet access was so slow that I couldn't use my iPad. However both journeys were very comfortable and on time.

The union of Britain with Ireland in 1800 increased the need to improve the road route from London to Dublin and, by this time, Holyhead had emerged as the primary port for sea access, mainly due to the fact that it is the closest point on the British coast to Ireland.
The town's centre is built around St. Cybi's church, which is built inside one of Europe's only three-walled Roman forts (the fourth wall being the sea, which used to come up to the fort). The Romans also built a lighthouse on the top of Holyhead Mountain inside Mynydd y Twr, a prehistoric fortress. Settlements in the area date from prehistoric times, with circular huts, burial chambers and standing stones featuring in the highest concentration in Britain.
Holy Island (Ynys Gybi) is blessed with Anglesey's best scenery.
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.
