  • "Lovely and spacious "

    Much nicer than most ferries, lots of room and can go out on deck. Areas to entertain children and nice bar area. Captain let us know timings and it was all very efficient. My only complaint was a coffee cost $4.50 the most expensive in the whole of our Ireland trip and when we went back for a second they would not reuse the takeaway cup they gave us the first time!

  • "Holyhead-Dublin-Holyhead "

    We travelled on Epsilon going out which was one of the smaller ferries without Club class and there was a very bad vibration// rattle in the “ quiet” lounge. So loud that we were unable to sit there. We travelled back on Ulysses which was a much bigger ferry and we had booked Club class seats which were very good but really could have done with higher backs as we had been on the road since 2 am. The snacks provided were very welcome. Priority loading was good and we were away off the ferry very promptly on docking in Holyhead.
