Cherbourg Dublin Ferry reviews

  • "Lovely ferry not enough cabins"

    Our experience on boarding was very chaotic. It took forever to park up. I could not seem to change my booking online from reclining chair to booking a cabin. After boarding we found out all the cabins were full. Having said that the staff were all very friendly and helpful, saying no one had expected such a busy crossing. Everything was kept exceptionally clean including the toilets being regularly checked. the breakfast was fine for me on a full breakfast, but my wife only has cereal, which was a tiny prepacked special K. You have to buy a bottle of milk to use and with a banana was vastly overpriced for her small bowl. Getting off took an hour in Dublin. I can only assume the delays at both ends were due to such a large amount of cars traveling. So mixed views. I hope if I use them again I can get a cabin and have a smoother journey.

  • "Easy to use"

    I booked the day before I travelled as I wasnt sure I would be taking the car or a motorbike. In the end I took the motorbike (although the weather wasnt very kind) and sailed on the Epsilon going over and the Swift on the way back. Easy to book and only had to be there half an hour before sailing with Irish Ferries. Have used in the passed and will use again. The Epsilon is a bit basic but its got seating and hot food, The Swift is a bit better with the seating and quicker so if your budget allows, go for the Swift.
