"No need to worry!"
Reviewed 31 October 2014 by Greg
Not having travelled with a vehicle on board before we were a little apprehensive about the process. But we need not have worried because from arrival, through loading to driving off the experience was smooth. Helpful staff, good crossing, no worries! Well done Irish Ferries.

"OUR FERRY TRIP TO DUBLIN"
Reviewed 29 October 2014 by Nicci
Our transport to Dublin was a tale with too halves! We have not travelled by ferry for a number of years and we were very impressed on our way out to Dublin. We had upgrade to the Stena Plus Lounge and we were so pleased we did. The service was excellent and the snacks, drink and menu on offer were very good but the most pleasant thing was the surroundings - the seating, space and location of the lounge was outstanding, the crossing was very choppy but the comfortable seating area really helped to relax and enjoy the journey. Coming back was not quite the same! The lounge on the return, was old, cramped and uncomfortable. The seating area was laid out so most people had to sit looking at strangers. Some areas were reserved - obviously people had experienced this ferry before and did not want to go through the trauma of not being able to find a suitable seat again! The service, snacks and drink were still OK but we were so surprised how two ferries could be so different when supplied by the same company.

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.
Dublin is the capital of Ireland and lies in the province of Leinster on the north east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Ireland's capital city draws in millions of visitors each year to experience everything the city has to offer. The city's history dates back to Viking times and one of the most popular attractions in the city is Dublin Castle which was first founded in 1204, just after the Norman invasion. Other popular sites in the city include the Spire of Dublin, or officially titled "Monument of Light". It is a 121.2-metre conical spire made of stainless steel and is located on O'Connell Street. Other popular landmarks and monuments include the Mansion House, the Anna Livia monument, the Molly Malone statue, Christ Church Cathedral, St Patrick's Cathedral, Saint Francis Xavier Church on Upper Gardiner Street near Mountjoy Square, The Custom House, and Áras an Uachtaráin. The Poolbeg Towers are also iconic features of Dublin and are visible in many spots around the city.
The modern Dublin Port is located either side of the River Liffey, out to its mouth. On the north side of the river, the main part of the port lies at the end of East Wall and North Wall, from Alexandra Quay. The element of the port on the south side of the river is much smaller and lies at the beginning of the Pigeon House peninsula. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Holyhead in Wales, Liverpool in England and to Douglas on the Isle of Man.
