Irish Ferries saves Christmas for thousands!

Date: 02 Jan 2011 10:00 Source: Irish Ferries

Ferry giant Irish Ferries carried thousands of extra passengers – including actor Colin Farrell - between the UK and Ireland in the lead up to Christmas as snow caused chaos at Dublin airport.

Colin Farrell was one of those who turned to Irish Ferries when Dublin airport closed. He drove to Holyhead ferry port on 21 December and travelled in Club Class on the Dublin Swift fast ferry, enjoying a visit to the bridge during the short crossing.

And on Christmas Eve, additional ferry crossings between Dublin and the UK enabled many more to reach home in time for Christmas, as Dublin airport closed yet again.

“It was reported on Twitter, on Christmas Eve morning, that stranded air passengers in the bar at Dublin airport were chanting ‘There’s only one Irish Ferries.. one Irish Ferries’,” says head of passenger sales Declan Mescall.

“All our people, both on-board and at the ports, worked very hard in difficult circumstances to ensure no-one was left behind on Christmas Eve. We’re very grateful for everyone’s support,” adds Mescall.

Irish Ferries offer cheap ferries to Ireland connecting it with ferry ports in France and the UK with their ferry routes from Holyhead to Dublin, Pembroke to Rosslare, Cherbourg to Rosslare and Roscoff to Rosslare. Their best fares are available if booked in advance, so book your 2011 crossing now for a bargain.
