Irish Ferries Review
Image courtsey of Irish Ferries
Irish Ferries is part of the Irish Continental Group (ICG). The group specialises in passenger and freight transportation by sea. Irish Continental Group was formed originally as Irish Continental Line as an Irish/Scandinavian joint venture in 1972 so as to provide a direct ferry link from Ireland to Continental Europe.
Operating a small but modern Fleet, Irish Ferries services are popular with Brits looking for a short break in the magical country of Ireland as well as the Irish looking for a short break in the UK or beyond. Vessels in operation include:
- MS Oscar Wilde (built 1991)
- MS Ulysses (built 2001)
- MS Isle of Inishmore (built 1996)
- HSC Jonathan Swift [otherwise known as Dublin Swift] (built 1999)
Irish Ferries concentrates on a handful of routes connecting the Western Side of the UK to Ireland. Departing from iconic terminals in Pembroke Dock and Holyhead in Britain they sail regularly to Rosslare and Dublin respectively.
Irish Ferries also operates services connecting Ireland (through Rosslare) to mainland France at destinations in Cherbourg and Roscoff.
