"A fascinating and repaxing way of crossing the Irish Sea"
Although a long crossing, this was a fascinating and relaxing way of crossing to Dublin and avoiding the drive to Holyhead. All food and drink was provided free, though after breakfast is served most of the crew have a kip before serving a meal in the last hour of the voyage. Self service hot drinks are provided at all times. There's plenty of space in the lounge and dinning area and for a little extra comfortable cabins are available. Take a good book there's not a lot else to do on board though.

I can highly recommend Direct ferries. The staff were polite and helpful. The ships were clean and the facilities very good. The White bed linen in the cabins was spotless. Even the soap/ shower gel and towels are provided in your ensuite. The food is of a high standard and plentiful. We journeyed to and from Ireland and enjoyed a selection of salads, soups,full English breakfast, fish and chips and best of all was the delicious chicken and leek pie served piping hot on the Endeavour. The fact that free soft drinks and hot drinks are available throughout the day means that you do not need to take anything on board for your journey.
