  • "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.

  • "No dramas"

    Our crossing with Irish Ferries was very quick and efficient. There was a good variety of food on offer from the moment we were on board and enough seating space for everyone. The crossing was pretty smooth and we were kept informed of timings etc.

  • "Great experience "

    We had a great experience. This was the very first time we travelled on a ferry and it was great and comfortable. We enjoyed the club class experience very much. (We notice in the Berth beds are done beautifully but the units are not dusted. This is not a complaint but It would be good for the reputation of your service. The ferry on the 24th 0815 from Holyhead to Dublin. )

  • "Ulysses was fantastic, Epsilon not so great but overall very happy"

    Sailed out on the Ulysses and very impressed with the overall experience, plenty of room, activities for kids etc. Sailed home on the Epsilon, minimal seating and nothing for the kids but overall the journeys were quick and went without a hitch.

  • "Epsilon "

    We travelled both directions on the Epsilon. We found it to be very basic with very limited seating. Strikes us more as a freight vessel. It took us to our destination but I would prefer a different ship next time.

  • "Dublin to Holyhead and back "

    My family enjoyed the ferry crossings which were punctual and very clean. We were very comfortable on the route to Holyhead but were disappointed with the scarcity of soft seating on the return on July 13th. I would however recommend the company on this route as the ferry was spotless and the staff very friendly.

  • "1st trip with 6mth old"

    Outbound crossing to Ireland was easy, parked up and was able to get my daughter into her buggy and use the lift to get to the deck. Home bound crossing was a nightmare, it was a different boat and had no lift, we had to weave between cars as no pedestrian walkway the buggy would get through then had to lift the buggy and bags into the deck floor, checked in for our cabin to find it was on a different floor again with no lift. The staff were great and swapped our cabin to a easy assess one straight away, couldn’t fault them but if you are travelling with a baby and buggy you would need to be mindful and have someone with you to help
