  • "bookings "

    my trip was excellent the ferry was clean and comfortable especially the quiet room which i really appreciated ! the food was excellent which made the trip out to Ireland very pleasant indeed however which was entirely my own fault i had booked the ferry home at 2 am in the morning and not as was wanted which was the afternoon ferry i was treated with great respect by the lady taking the tickets that day ,i think that my only complaint would be the extra funds i had to pay to get on the afternoon ferry which i felt was excessive ! i do acknoledge the mistake was mine but felt after paying £244.00 to travel then having to pay such a lot more was a little bit sad but the lady was very pleasant and dealt with it all very simpathetically as i did feel a bit of a fool never the less i arrived home safely and would certainly travel again with stenna ,i shall just make sure i book the afternoon return ferry next time

  • "Plain sailing!"

    We booked online which was straightforward. The crossing itself passed quickly as there was a small shop, restaurant, cinema and games room on board. Excellent choice of hot and cold food in the restaurant. Refillable coffee too! Staff were friendly and helpful!

  • "My first ferry trip"

    Not having traveled on a ferry before, I was a little unsure what to expect. I found myself pleasantly surprised! Boarding was easy and uncomplicated thanks to excellent communication by the marshals and a logical boarding process. While waiting for boarding to commence, I was happy to find out that there was a lounge where you could get refreshments and relax, and bathroom facilities. Once my vehicle was stowed away, I familiarized myself with the layout of the ferry. It has multiple lounges (Family, food and quiet), a shop, arcade, cinema, restaurant serving meals, bar and coffee shop, viewing decks and free wifi. Basically, plenty to keep you comfy and entertained for the short trip. On my return leg I had also booked a cabin. This was compact but functional, with a comfy single bed, TV and kettle and a small bathroom. Everything was very clean and tidy. Disembarking was equally pleasant. Marshals control the whole process and I was on the road again without any issue.

  • "Get good directiosn to Liverpool dock BEFORE you go! "

    trying to find Liverpool dock at 3 am was hilarious, google maps took us to port for the Isle of Man! Nobody around to ask for directions except a few taxi drivers who didn't know. No signeage. went round and round in circles till my son had the genius idea of finding the postcode on google. Once on board is a pretty steep climb to the decks, lots of facilities (which we didn't use much as night crossing just wanted to go to bed) Didn't realise we had free food with our cabin - that was nice, was rather pie/beans/chips/egg type stodge, doesn't cater well for veggies, but hey it was free! Breakfast plentiful juice yoghourt, tinned/stewed type fruit, make your own brown/white toast and the cooked b'fast esp mushrooms and tomatoes were lovely. Very comfortable clean cabin lovely shower, just beware the knocking cleaning ladies who get you up an unnecessary 2 hours before you dock! Got very lost on the Dublin side as well but that's another story.....

  • "travelling the Irish Sea"

    We recently travelled on the overnight ferry, 2.15am from Dublin to Holyhead, and it was excellent. We live in England and have a cottage in Ireland, and don't usually use the night ferry, but it just happened to suit us this time. The ferry is never overcrowded on the night sailing, and we found bench to stretch out on, and the lighting is dimmed so we managed to sleep. The sea was calm, so it was a prefect journey. Punctuality is always good, often leaving before time, if everyone who booked is aboard.

  • "Holyhead to Dublin with Irish Ferries"

    This was not my first Irish Ferries ship. A couple of years ago I travelled from Fishguard to Rosslare and was very impressed with the ship. This time my first impressions from the Rosslare ship were again confirmed. Irish Ferries are clean, pleasant, offer all one could wish for in the way of on board services and despite that have competitive prices. The staff are helpful and friendly - what more could you ask?
