We had a most enjoyable crossing both ways. The cabin was clean and tidy, with 2 free meals thrown in, we couldn't fault the experience. The staff were pleasant and helpful at all times. I would recommend this as a lovely relaxing start to any holiday in Ireland. Unless you are in a hurry then this is definitely the best way to travel.

I use this service on a regular basis (Both Ways) always high standards, good food, pleasant staff. I have to say I prefer the day crossings where you can get a cabin to yourself as this allows me to get on with my work in peace & quiet. All in all, first class, brilliant!

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.
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.
