  • "A relaxing day "

    We find this crossing to Ireland very relaxing and it is the best way for us to go there. It is very basic but comfortable and plenty of space to relax. The foor provided is always tasty and a good selection. It is not really suitable for young children as they could get bored, as it is a long day with little for them to do. For adults it is a way to wind down at the beginning and end of a break away.

  • "Punctual service that works"

    The service is primarily for freight and facilities reflect that. However it’s service with a smile with clean comfortable cabins, plentiful food and friendly staff. Will use again.

  • "Alternative to Holyhead "

    We wanted to take our bikes to Ireland so the ferry seemed to be the easiest option. We travelled from east anglia and took the overnight ferry from Liverpool. It was all very easy and smooth. The ferries don't have many passengers as they mostly seem to deal with freight. I would definitely recommend to break up a long journey

  • "P&O Liverpool to Dublin "

    We love this route have been using it for over 20 years The ferry trip is part of the holiday, love the old ships on that route it’s like a mini cruise really.  The onboard team get a gold star ⭐️ food was excellent as was the Guinness and great to be able to do some duty free shopping.  And finally we had a very comfortable en-suite cabin so slept for a few hours.  God willing we hope to use this service again later in the year.

  • "Safe no hassle trip"

    Couldn't really fault the trip. Easy check in both ways, friendly staff, arrived on time.  Meal service was excellent.  Could have done with a snack machine in-between meals as we hadn't taken any provisions. Slamming door by the room meant interupted sleep throughout the journey.  Would use again but pick a different room.

  • "Disappointed with Direct Ferries "

    As we couldn’t get booked directly with P&O we made our booking with direct ferries. Having paid €303 on Tuesday evening for a sailing on Thursday evening they then informed us on Wednesday that due to weather issues our booking was cancelled however on contacting P&O we found out that sailing was going ahead. As our ferry was within 48hrs direct ferries wouldn’t deal with our inquiries. However P&O were great as usual to deal with especially Adrienne in freight as our booking was car and passenger. They looked after us brilliantly start to finish. Thank you team P&O from directional staff on ground to purser and staff on board the “Norbank” . Not one bit happy with direct ferries. Thanks for taking time to read this.

  • "Fantastic trip with this ferry"

    Travelled for a funeral in the UK. This ferry included breakfast and dinner and unlimited tea n coffee or hot chocolate. The cabins were clean and the two birth ones were not bunk beds which was fantastic. There was a shower and toilet ensuing and the price was the cabin was a lit cheaper than other ferry companies. The staff were really helpful.

  • "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!

  • "Peaceful "

    The Norbank could do with a refurbishment as it looks old and worn compared to other companies that do the Ireland crossing. However it does the job and it’s quiet. Because of the long crossing there is rarely kids running around. The cabins are comfy and clean. The meals are plentiful and varied. It suits my needs very well. At arrival on either side, I feel refreshed and not frazzled. The staff from check in and on board are very friendly and helpful.

  • "March 20 experience"

    Our first time on the Liverpool Dublin service. Clearly designed for lorries indeed, on our trips there were no more than half a dozen cars each way. On the plus side this means the public spaces are relatively empty, the food simple but well cooked and tea/coffee/ fruit juice is always available; all included in the ticket price. On the negative side the entertainment is confined to a couple of televisions, and a bar. The cabins are simple, clean but without any frills. So provided you can entertain yourself for 8 hours this is excellent way to cross the Irish sea

  • "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.
