  • "Bedding"

    The sheet and quilt are most uncomfortable. The slightest movement and you were losing the quilt or getting tied up in the sheet. What happened to quilt covers? Everything else was fine.

  • "all good! keep going Irish ferries"

    The staff was very friendly and the reclining seats were OK too, it would be great to have something in between the cabins and the reclining seats price wise because of course you can't really sleep in the seats, if you are lucky as we were it was not full and you could sleep on the floor. Beware of seasickness but of course that cannot be helped, we will always continue to use the ferry to avoid plane travel and save the planet ... Thanks!

  • "Magnifico"

    The ship WB Yeats was launched in 2018. It is obviously a modern ship and has been designed to absolute perfection! Our 18 hour journey from Dublin to Cherbourg was both enjoyable and rewarding. The food onboard was second to none and was reasonably priced. The cabin could only be described as bijou but luxurious. We were very very comfortable and both had the best sleep ever! Thus service with Irish ferries is highly recommended!

Dublin Guide

The Irish city of Dublin is the capital of Ireland and lies in the province of Leinster on the east coast of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dating back to the Viking age, Dublin began to rapidly expand in the 17th century. Today, the city attracts millions of visitors every year to experience everything the city has to offer. One of Dublin's oldest monuments is the 13th century Dublin Castle which was founded after the Norman invasion. Trinity College, Dublin is also a popular visitor destination in order to see the Book of Kells which is an illustrated manuscript created by Irish monks in around 800 AD. One of the most photographed sights in Dublin is the Ha'penney Bridge which is an old iron footbridge that spans the River Liffey. This is considered to be one of Dublin's most iconic landmarks.

Dublin Port is the busiest passenger ferry port in Ireland, serving 1.5 million passengers per year to destinations in the UK and Europe. The port has three terminals and lies at the mouth of the River Liffey, which is under 3 km from the city centre.

Cherbourg Guide

The town and port of Cherbourg is located on the Cotentin Peninsular in the Manche department of Normandy in the north west of France. The town's port is perhaps best known as a cross channel port serving ferries travelling between the United Kingdom and France. One of the most popular attractions in the town is the Museum T. Henry which was founded in 1831 following a donation of more than 160 paintings by Henry, commissioner of the Royal Museums. Today, the museum has a collection of 300 paintings by French, Dutch and Italian artists stretching back from the present day to the Middle Ages. Contained in the collection are "The Ascent to Calvary" by Murrillo, "Christ Died" which is attributed to Filippino Lippi, and the "Conversion of St. Augustine" by Beato Angelico.

Also in the town and popular with visitors is the 12th century Abbey du Voeu which was dedicated to the Virgin. The church was consecrated in 1181, during the reign of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, who were present at the ceremony.

Ferry services from the port depart to Poole and Portsmouth in England and to Rosslare in Ireland.
