Cherbourg Dublin Ferry reviews

  • "cherbourg/dublin cruise"

    very enjoyable and comfortable crossing, at a great price; cheaper than Holyhead to Dublin and if you are going from france - a lot of travel through England & across channel alleviated. like all catering on ferries [except the French companies] - no 'public' microwave in the restaurant to 'blast' your food back to hotness after its gone cold on the way through the till to the table; and ferry food is rarely hot to start with [why is that?] all ferries should provide the excellent ikea idea of microwaves available for that purpose [we don't like microwaves but like cold food even less]

  • "Cherbourg Dublin trip"

    I recently travelled with Irish Ferries (Cherbourg to Dublin) apart from the original ferry being cancelled, We had a three star two birth cabin where we discovered the toilet was faulty. We frequently use Irish Ferries but feel the standards are dropping and the cabins and could be freshened up. Apart from that staff are friendly,sailing was very pleasant.

Cherbourg Guide

The French city and port of Cherbourg is located on the Cotentin Peninsular in the north west of France. Invaded by the Vikings in the 9th century who were instrumental in developing Cherbourg into a port, the city has a long history. In Napoleonic times the harbour was fortified in order to prevent a British naval assault on it. Underwater obstructions were sunk at intervals across the harbour entrance which were eventually replaced with piles of masonry rubble. The works began in 1784 and were not concluded until 1850, long after Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of Waterloo.

There are many things to see and do in Cherbourg including the Cite de la Mer (the city of the sea) which is a museum dedicated to maritime history. The museum was opened in 2002 and is housed in the cruise terminal at Cherbourg port. Visitors to the city may also choose to take a leisurely stroll in the Jardin de la Roche Fauconniere which is a private botanical garden located in the Parc de la Fauconniere. Established in the 1870's the gardens contain roughly 3,400 specimens, many of which come from the Southern Hemisphere.
