Roscoff Plymouth Ferry reviews

  • "Cruisey Crossing"

    Perfectly calm day and sea. An on-time departure from Roscoff although we would prefer the sailing to be earlier than 3.00 pm so as to arrive earlier than 8.10 pm as we 60 kms still to drive from Plymouth which makes for a long day.

  • "Roscoff to Plymouth"

    Overall a good experience, ferry departure was changed to an earlier to an earlier time , but the communication was sent with plenty of time to make adjustments. Staff were friendly and the ship was spotlessly clean, we ate on the ferry and the was plenty of choices and the food was good. Good entertainment for younger kids onboard, duty free was well stocked. loads of room and the channel was like a mill pond. Overall a good experience

Roscoff Guide

The French town and seaport of Roscoff is located in the Brittany region of north western France. The town and surrounding area is a great introduction into Brittany's charms. The town itself has been labelled "Petite cite de caractere de Bretagne" (the small town with character) due to the lovely architecture on display. Located next to the coast are 16th century granite buildings and charming streets filled with restaurants, small art galleries and gift shops. Many of the town's specialities, which include fantastic local seafood and Breton crepes, can be found in many of the town's restaurants or street side creperies. Alternatively, sample some famous Brittany thalassotherapy - rejuvenating, healing and relaxing therapies using seawater and sea products.

The port was opened in 1973 and is unfortunately somewhat deficient in passenger facilities. Ferry services using the port depart to Rosslare and Cork in Ireland with crossing times of 17 hours and 13 hours respectively. The nearby Île de Batz, called Enez Vaz in Breton, is a small island that can also be reached by launch from the port.
