Pembroke Rosslare Ferry reviews

  • "Pembroke to Rosslare "

    Facilities very clean and staff very helpful.  Paid for Club Lounge which was lovely and quiet but the availability to charge devices was very limited.  Would definitely recommend this route with Irish Ferries.

  • "Great Trip"

    We travelled from Pembroke to Rosslare and back again (6 days later). We had a cabin on both journeys. Everything was great, clean and had a great trip.

  • "Easy and efficient "

    I was a little bit nervous about this trip after reading some of the reviews and booking the crossing online. It asked us if we wanted a berth or a seat for the crossing so wasn’t sure what would be available if these options weren’t taken. However, there is plenty of seating on board. There are two duty free shops, a cinema. Restaurant and coffee shop. All staff were pleasant and the crossing both ways was fine. Bit choppy one way but that’s the weather and not their fault lol. It was estimated 3 hrs out and 5 hrs home but this turned into 4.5 out and 4 home. Guess this is down to the weather again so only estimated. The ship ran on time and was quickly loaded and unloaded with vehicles. All in all, a simple way to cross to Ireland for a short break.

Pembroke Guide

The historic town of Pembroke is located in Pembrokeshire in the west of Wales. The town lies on the South Pembrokeshire Peninsular by the estuary of the River Cleddau, at the bottom of a valley and surrounded by farmland and woodland. It is roughly 13 km to the south of the county town of Haverfordwest and 121 km to the west of Cardiff. The medieval Pembroke Castle is a popular visitor attraction in the town. The castle was the birthplace of King Henry VII of England and was later home to the Knights of St John in the UK.

Offering a range of services to Ireland, the Port of Pembroke handles freight and aggregate, passenger vessels and oil rig supply ships. There are two sailings to Rosslare in County Wexford, Ireland, which are operated by Irish Ferries. The journey time is around 3 hours and 45 minutes. The fleet is made up of four modern vessels including the Ulysses, which is the world's largest car ferry.
