While Stenaline sold us a big NO because every ferry would have been sold out for the same eveving and more than three days, Directline gave us immediate a ticket for the first ferry! Thank you very much! This differs us three days!

Excellent service but would like more attractive deals and would travel more.

"Great! 2 small spoilers"
The online booking process could not have been easier. On my return trip, I felt two little "dampners" bothered, but I could have just been tired. I found the tone at check in a little too snappy despite no queue or time pressures. Food was excellent and fairly priced at sea, however a small cup of tea @ €2.5 seemed a misplaced profit area. ( price for a small pot as a thirst quencher..too picky?) Uniformed staff were fantastic, professional and welcoming. Really commendable! Thank you.

Staff and crossing was great, the only down side was the lasagna served at dinner time was tepid, the food should have been hotter for service, should be 65 degrees this certainly was not

"Recent trip to Ireland "
Travelled by motorbike. On and off was fast and efficient, and on both journeys a staff member secured my bike for me. Fantastic as I always struggle with doing that myself. Ferry was clean and comfortable. I had a hot meal going and just a sandwich and coffee on the return trip. Not great but OK and reasonably priced. Looking forward to my next trip. Many thanks. Jeff

"Trip to Ireland for a wedding"
We booked the 13.10 out and the 8am return. The sailing booking, instructions and car loading were all very efficient. We booked a 4 berth cabin both ways which was excellent. We had coffee/tea and did a little shopping. The crossings were very stable and the staff friendly.

Was a great trip. Recommend the little upgrades like priority boarding if you have a car and access to the lounge.

"Great first experience"
Comfortable, clean easy ferry crossing. Left a later than expected both there and return but still got to destination bang on time. Can't comment on the quality of catering but everyone was purchasing it and portion sizes looked generous. Would definitely travel with you again.

Whilst the ferry was smaller as the main one was being remitted, it was fine. Although we departed late, and the initial crossing was a bit rough, we arrived earlier than scheduled. The staff were very helpful. The text sent en route route giving departure details was useful.

"Excellent Service by Stena Line"
A fantastic service operated by Stena Line between Fishguard and Rosslare. The staff at both ports were friendly and helpful. The Fishguard cafe was clean and reasonably priced. On board the crew were helpful, the basic facilities were considerably better than you would receive on Channel crossing ferries and the customns staff were helpful. Highly recommended way the visit Southern Ireland.

"OUR FERRY TRIP TO DUBLIN"
Our transport to Dublin was a tale with too halves! We have not travelled by ferry for a number of years and we were very impressed on our way out to Dublin. We had upgrade to the Stena Plus Lounge and we were so pleased we did. The service was excellent and the snacks, drink and menu on offer were very good but the most pleasant thing was the surroundings - the seating, space and location of the lounge was outstanding, the crossing was very choppy but the comfortable seating area really helped to relax and enjoy the journey. Coming back was not quite the same! The lounge on the return, was old, cramped and uncomfortable. The seating area was laid out so most people had to sit looking at strangers. Some areas were reserved - obviously people had experienced this ferry before and did not want to go through the trauma of not being able to find a suitable seat again! The service, snacks and drink were still OK but we were so surprised how two ferries could be so different when supplied by the same company.
Reviewed by Nicci who travelled with Stena Line on Stena Nordica
The return trips were pleasant. I thought it unusual that only the outward journey to Ireland had a security check for luggage. I arrived slightly late to embark at Holyhead but was rushed through in an efficient manner. The ships facilities on both journeys were good. Decent films to view. Internet access was so slow that I couldn't use my iPad. However both journeys were very comfortable and on time.

"STENA SUPREME WITH DIRECT FERRIES"
If you're shopping around for a decent price ferry from the UK to Ireland - look no further than Stena Line and I cannot possibly think you'd find a more economical route elsewhere. I've been travelling to Ireland to fish an annual competition every year for nearly thirty years now and have to say I'd be extremely surprised if you found a better price anywhere than what Direct Ferries organised for me. I've just been given the dates for next years competition and my first port of call - "Direct Ferries".
