Cork Roscoff Ferry reviews

  • "Roscoff-Cork ferry"

    I,with my Partner and her son, travelled from Roscoff to Cork on the nght of June 3rd with the Pont Aven and returned with the same on June18th. I found the staff to be friendly and very helpful (with the exception of one bartender who had not enough experience to know his job does not entail being a smart-ass. But no doubt he will learn or be taught.) I was annoyed that ships prices were in Sterling and at a ruinous exchange rate to €uros, which currency is that of both France and Ireland not GBP. But I am sure that will soon change with the brexit and the debased british pound ( buy sterling while it iis cheap or pay by card). Ships punctuality is good but as a foot passenger you will not get off the boat before 10:00. Everybody else seems to have precedence ,so do not expect to arrive in Cork city before 11.30 (Ringaskiddy is 20km. outside of Cork) so plan your further travel accordingly.

  • "Pont_Aven"

    The journey on the ferry itself is always first class but the waiting time in an overcrowded terminal without any tea/coffee facilities is not up to the same standard especially when boarding time is delayed.

  • "Brittany Ferries"

    We have been traveling to Brittany by Ferry over many years ans still the crew ship service maintains an excellent reputation. All credit to those who work behind the scenes who fail to get public recognition for all the support and enthusiasm.

Cork Guide

The Irish city of Cork is located in the south west of the country in the province of Munster. It is Ireland's second largest city and stands on an island on the River Lee which divides into two channels to the west and east of the city. Quays and docks can be found to the east of the city where both channels merge again. From here the river flows to Lough Mahon and Cork harbour, one of the world's largest natural harbours.

The city has retained its heritage although little remains of the medieval walled city. Much though is retained from the 18th century and Victorian era onwards. The retail trade in Cork city includes a mix of both modern, state of the art shopping centres and family owned local shops. Department stores cater for all budgets, with expensive boutiques for one end of the market and high street stores also available.

Passenger facilities at Cork's ferry terminal are limited and comprise mainly of waiting areas and refreshments. For more facilities, visitors should head to Ringaskiddy where a post office offers a bureau de change and tourist information. The city of Cork is not much further up the sound for a much larger selection of services. Ringaskiddy can provide ATMs, restaurants, petrol, lower market accommodation (B&Bs) and some convenience item shopping.

Roscoff Guide

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 is one of the 27 regions of France, occupying 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, and its capital is Rennes.

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.
