Ferries to Wales

Rich in history and natural beauty, Wales has a culture distinct from the rest of the UK. Travellers are attracted to Wales because of its beautiful landscape, the wide open spaces of its stunning national parks and the wealth of history and culture.

Wales is situated on the western shores of Great Britain, has three National Parks (including the only coastal National Park in the UK), five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and only 3 million people! And there is more; two languages, over 400 castles, the largest impressionist art collection outside of Paris and a landscape that offers opportunities for all kinds of activities such as walking, cycling, climbing, golf, mountain biking, water sports, paragliding to name but a few.

You could find yourself in a National Park or at a World Heritage Site. You could be admiring the golden sands of a Blue Flag beach, or a Premier Garden. When you visit Wales you'll learn the more you explore the more you'll discover.

Many artists, poets and painters have been inspired by Wales. Visit Wales and be inspired yourself!

Wales reviews

  • "Holyhead-Dublin-Holyhead "

    We travelled on Epsilon going out which was one of the smaller ferries without Club class and there was a very bad vibration// rattle in the “ quiet” lounge. So loud that we were unable to sit there. We travelled back on Ulysses which was a much bigger ferry and we had booked Club class seats which were very good but really could have done with higher backs as we had been on the road since 2 am. The snacks provided were very welcome. Priority loading was good and we were away off the ferry very promptly on docking in Holyhead.

  • "Trip to Ireland "

    We sailed out on the swift ferry and myself and my 3 kids loved this experience on a very smart and clean ferry. Unfortunately on the return trip the swift was cancelled and we had to make alternative arrangements and managed to sail on the 8.05 pn the Ulysses. This trip was still a good one but not as good as the swift. The way in which we were contacted to inform us of the cancellation was very good and early which allowed us to change our plans, getting up at 2.30, which was nice. The one issue was the length of time it took to exit the ferry port at Holyhead and get to the main road, 1 hour in total. Overall though still a very good experience.

  • " even the best laid plans can come unstuck"

    Being tourist we booked seats well in advance and paid E124. 00 to acquire reserved seats only to end 24 hours out our cruise was cancelled and we were offered the choice of two alternate tours in place of the original but it was a free for all. (TOLD WE WOULD RECEIVE A REFUND FOR THE DIFFERENCE.) then let's hope Irish Ferries are more reliable than British Airways. We have since learnt that you can get pay E43. 00 for solid rail... So travellers beware ask questions and get the best prices. Ths staff and the amenities plus choice of food was very good...

  • "No dramas"

    Our crossing with Irish Ferries was very quick and efficient. There was a good variety of food on offer from the moment we were on board and enough seating space for everyone. The crossing was pretty smooth and we were kept informed of timings etc.
