Dublin Liverpool Ferry reviews

  • "Over 60 traveller."

    Travel frequently on ferries. This suited me as Liverpool was handy for my destination. It was also handy to sleep on board and wake refreshed which I did. The ship as we were told from the start is not suited for people with mobility problems so don't come with lots of bags to carry up stairs. Next time I will bring a rucksack as two hands to hold onto rails going up stairs would be useful. Otherwise a very good service.

  • "A great trip!"

    I arrived at Dublin port feeling very tired but my ferry journey was excellent and I when I got Liverpool I was feeling refreshed. I decided to pay for a cabin (£22.50) for the day - it was clean and quiet and I was able to sleep. The breakfast and late-afternoon meals were very good, the staff were polite, efficient and friendly. Couldn't have been better!

The Irish city of Dublin is the capital of Ireland and lies in the province of Leinster on the east coast of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dating back to the Viking age, Dublin began to rapidly expand in the 17th century. Today, the city attracts millions of visitors every year to experience everything the city has to offer. One of Dublin's oldest monuments is the 13th century Dublin Castle which was founded after the Norman invasion. Trinity College, Dublin is also a popular visitor destination in order to see the Book of Kells which is an illustrated manuscript created by Irish monks in around 800 AD. One of the most photographed sights in Dublin is the Ha'penney Bridge which is an old iron footbridge that spans the River Liffey. This is considered to be one of Dublin's most iconic landmarks.
