We travelled out from Liverpool to Dublin on the Saturday 3am ferry returning Wednesday afternoon leaving Dublin at 3pm. Both crossings were very smooth and we were well looked after with free food and drink on arrival on ship and just before docking. Well organised and staff were very friendly. I would be very happy to recommend to others and would certainly travel again.

"Liverpool to Dublin good... Dublin to Liverpool painful!!"

Not having made this trip before I wasn't aware of the seating arrangements for the return trip. Outgoing ship European Endeavour clean,well equipped with reclining seats and couches so you could sleep comfortably. Clean pillows and bedding available if required.Unfortunately the return trip was during the day and I hadn't booked a cabin (highly recommended) The seating was sparse and mostly taken over by selfish people who took up the whole of one couch for themselves leaving us , and others, having to sleep in hard upright chairs. I even saw some sleeping on the floor! No bedding available so a long, uncomfortable trip was had by us! Must say the food was extremely good (included in the price) and MOST staff very helpful and pleasant. Shame one family on the return trip decided to spoil it for many others with dispruptive children who also took far too much food and ended up throwing most of it away untouched. Apart from that not too much to fault.

"Great crossing and service"
Reviewed 03 September 2014 by Aoife
Having traveled on my own I was adamant to have a comfortable crossing. Dinner and breakfast(both tasty) were provided free of charge and with a large sleeping room available this was the best crossing I've had yet. It was horrible weather outside but this didn't affect the crossing at all. I have already recommended P&O to other friends. I look forward to the next crossing!

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.
