Day trip to Dublin with Stena Line from £6pp

Enjoy a cheap day trip to Dublin sailing from the North Wales port of Holyhead with Stena Line.

This deal has expired but there are still great prices available.

Day trip to Dublin, Ireland, for as little as £6 per person return with Stena Line!

Opt to enjoy up to three hours or up to 8½ hours in Ireland on this whistle-stop trip to the Emerald Isle.

Sail on Stena Line's ferry between Holyhead and Dublin as a foot passenger.

The trip is available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays until 18 December 2019.

Tuesday sailings are priced at £6 per person return for adults and children aged 4+ (children aged 3 and under sail for free when accompanied by an adult). All other days are priced at £12.50 per person return on the same basis.

You'll depart Holyhead at 8.55 am and arrive in Dublin at 12.10pm. Disembark the ferry and enjoy up to three hours in Ireland. The return ferry departs at 2.50 pm and gets back at 6.20 pm.

Alternatively you can book the later return sailing that departs Dublin at 8.40 pm and arrives back at Holyhead at midnight. This option gives you considerably more time in Dublin but it is a late sailing back so if you've got kids they might be a bit groggy.

You need to book at least 48 hours in advance to secure this deal.

You'll need to arrange your own transportation from Dublin port to the city centre. There is a bus service available from the port to Westmoreland Street for a small charge.

You can't bring luggage nor your own alcohol on-board. You must also disembark the ferry in Dublin.

Also, keep an eye out on the booking form for an option to extend your stay to get 36 hours in Ireland. Prices start from £41 and you'll spend the night in Dublin, although you'll need to factor in the price of a hotel which you'll need to book separately.

This deal has expired but there are still great prices available. If you think the deal is back on again please let me know and I'll let everyone else know the good news.

The dull-but-necessary small print

All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice. The lead-in prices (otherwise known as the 'from' prices) are, unless otherwise stated above, based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin on the cheapest available date. Typically the best prices are available at the start of any promotion period so the earlier you book the better choice of sailing dates and cabin availability you should have. Mid-week sail dates are likely to be cheaper than weekend sail dates.

    • Ships are still sailing. There are rules that tourists need to abide by, and the ferry operators are doing a good job in communicating those on their websites. It's also worth checking the FCO's website as well as the website of the destination country, just so you know what the rules are at the time of travelling.

  1. Would it be possible to travel to Dublin from Holyhead on wednesday28 July and return on Wednesday 28 July as a foot passenger.8.45 ferry going out any ferry on return journey.

    • Good question. It'd be best to check with Stena (ideally in writing so you could take it with you in case the check-in staff think differently), but my guess is that they'd charge extra for returning with luggage. Whether a carrier bag would be considered 'luggage' is up for debate...

    • It will be due to availability which spikes in the school summer holidays. Such sailings typically need to be booked well ahead of time (Stena Line's T&C's state a minimum of 48 hours notice). I had a quick play with availability and the earliest £6 date I could find is a month in advance (early September).

    • The offer is still available, but I believe it is sold out on the date you are looking for. If you check the link above you'll be able to search for availability and play around with dates/times to find the best price.
