Dublin Liverpool Ferry reviews

  • "First Irish Ferry trip with P&O"

    Although the Liverpool-Dublin trip is a long one at 7 hours, you can use the time to relax and get ready for whatever you’ve planned. We had a daytime cabin so had somewhere to snooze, read or even shower.Food on the Ferry was good and service too.   Enjoyed the experience.

  • "Great service, good food, no lifts"

    All of the staff were cheerful and helpful. Due to a lack of lifts, I don't recommend the route for anyone with mobility problems or small children. Meals are included in the fare and were of a good standard. All public areas and the cabins were clean and spacious.
