"For a first experience, we are very satisfied"
Reviewed 28 June 2014 by Michel
For our crossing, we were blessed with a nice weather and a calm sea. Positives: the confort of the cabin with the porthole in spite of the musty smell the kindness of the staff ; the confort and the general cleanliness, the food is good and affordable. If you want hot meals, it's better to go when the restaurant open. Things to improve this line may be mostly for freight, but a couple of benches to enjoy the sun would be appreciated.... We had to sit on the floor. This line, which is less well known, is very interesting if you come from the West of France and ables you to arrive in Ireland without being tired.... We recommend it....

Saint Nazaire is town located in the Loire-Atlantique department of western France.
Saint Nazaire would never claim to be a seaside resort, but the town has very actively developed its beautiful coast with beaches, coves, a several kilometre long public footpath and a recently redesigned seaside promenade.
Rosslare (Ros Láir in Irish, meaning "the middle peninsula"), is a village in County Wexford. Rosslare has been a tourist resort for at least 100 years. It prides itself on being the sunniest spot in Ireland, and records bear this out: Rosslare receives 300 hours more sunshine each year than the average place in Ireland. The long sandy strand is a Blue Flag Beach so it attracts swimmers and families, while there are a number of good golf courses in the vicinity. A long sandspit stretching north from Rosslare separates Wexford Harbour from the Irish Sea. Until the early 1920s, this spit stretched for many miles north, almost touching the Raven Point and giving a very narrow mouth to Wexford Harbour. At the end of the spit was a small fort called Rosslare Fort. In the winter of 1924-25 a storm breached the spit and it was gradually washed away. The fort was abandoned and now all that is left is an island at low tide.
