"Ferry Oscar Wilde, Rosslare - Roscoff "
Rosslare Harbour gives impression of being very well organized. Check-in and retract into the ship (Oscar Wilde) somewhat chaotic. Booked outside cabin, but does not affect position of the car. Allocated cabin in the stern deck 5, noise transmission very much on the ship's propulsion, very limited sleep. Cabin ventilation poor. Leaving the ferry, chaotic, 1 hour wait in the car before they could leave the ferry.

The Irish village of Rosslare, or Rosslare Strand to give it is full name, is a coastal resort and port located in County Wexford, Ireland. Separating Wexford Harbour from the North Sea is a long sandspit which stretches north from Rosslare which until the 1920's stretched for many more miles north. At one point the spit almost reached Raven Point, giving Wexford Harbour and very narrow mouth. However, a storm breached the spit during the winter of 1924-25 and was thereafter gradually washed away. Located at the end of the spit was Rosslare Fort which is now abandoned. All that remains is a small island visible at low tide.
The village is supposed to be the sunniest in Ireland and has been a popular tourist resort for at least the last 100 years. The town's beach has been awarded a Blue Flag and therefore attracts many bathers and families.
The town's modern port has good passenger facilities and provides ferry services to Pembroke, with a crossing time of around 4 hours, Fishguard, 3 hours and 30 minutes and Cherbourg and Roscoff in France. Passenger facilities include a restaurant, a bar, children's play area and a waiting area.
The French village of Roscoff lies on the north coast of Brittany and is a perfect introduction to everything Brittany has to offer. A popular attraction in the city are the 16th century granite buildings that jostle against the coast along with the many restaurants that serve excellent local produce and the small galleries and gift shops. The town specialises in seafood dishes and traditional Breton crêpes, which you can enjoy at one of the many street-side crêperies. Alternatively, sample some famous Brittany thalassotherapy - rejuvenating, healing and relaxing therapies using seawater and sea products. Brittany's capital is Rennes and is one of the 27 regions of France and occupies a large peninsula in the north west of the country, lying between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south.
The port has been operational since 1973 although passengers won't find extensive facilities at the terminal. Ferry services depart to both Rosslare and Cork in Ireland. Crossing times are around 17 hours to Rosslare and 13 hours to Cork.
