Rosslare Fishguard Ferry reviews

  • "Relaxing crossing"

    We had a nice relaxing crossing on both legs of our trip. The ferry was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We used the Stena Plus lounge and we will definitely book it again the next time we travel to Wales. The lounge was quiet and comfortable and the service and food was excellent. We would recommend using it, we felt it added to our comfort on the ship. There was a very nice member of staff working in the facilities in Fishguard. She was very welcoming and helpful to all the travellers. We were very impressed with the standard of cleanliness in these facilities too.

  • "Simply the best"

    This was my first time travelling with Stena line. I brought 2 big bags thinking, im going to have to keep these on me for the few hours. When checking in I found out through Staff I could check them in. FOR FREE. Being 5 months pregnant this was just a life saver. I won't lie, luckily I fell asleep for most of the trip however I can say the couches are really comfortable! They also didn't sell iced coffee or tea, which I was disappointed with however, the staff honestly went the extra mile and said he would try his best to make one for me. I got a Hazlenut iced Cappuccino. It was EXQUISITE. Also met some lovely people too on board, in the outdoor area. After disembarking, the staff continuesly helped, brought my bags out for me and left me with my husband. Stena line, from now on, will always be my first choice. Thanks to all the staff and stena line for employing such kind & caring people.

Rosslare Guide

The Irish village of Rosslare, or Rosslare Strand to give it is full name, is a coastal resort and port located in County Wexford, Ireland. Separating Wexford Harbour from the North Sea is a long sandspit which stretches north from Rosslare which until the 1920's stretched for many more miles north. At one point the spit almost reached Raven Point, giving Wexford Harbour a very narrow mouth. However, a storm breached the spit during the winter of 1924-25 and was thereafter gradually washed away. Located at the end of the spit was Rosslare Fort which is now abandoned. All that remains is a small island visible at low tide.

The village is supposed to be the sunniest in Ireland and has been a popular tourist resort for at least the last 100 years. The town's beach has been awarded a Blue Flag and therefore attracts many bathers and families.

The town's modern port has good passenger facilities and provides ferry services to Pembroke, with a crossing time of around 4 hours, Fishguard, 3 hours and 30 minutes and Cherbourg and Roscoff in France. Passenger facilities include a restaurant, a bar, children's play area and a waiting area.

Fishguard Guide

The small market town of Fishguard is located in north Pembrokeshire, Wales. The town overlooks Fishguard Bay and is the main commercial and shopping centre for the region. The town has become increasingly popular with tourists as Fishguard is ideally located to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the Coast Path, the Gwaun Valley and the many other towns and villages along the coast and inland towards the Preseli Hills. The Lower Town had a small pilchard and herring fishing fleet and played an important role in the importation of limestone and coal and for the exportation of woollen products and food.

From the town's port, which is located some 1.5 km from Fishguard at Goodwick, there are ferry services to Rosslare in Ireland with 4 arrivals and 4 departures each day. Passenger facilities in the ferry terminal include a cafe, a bar and a number of vending machines.
