I travelled from Dublin to Liverpool on 15th February 2017 on 9am ferry. First impression was very bad due to poor signs to reach the ferry port. Ideally there should have been more signs for P&O ferries. Remember that P&O ferries are not from terminal 1 or 2, these are on Terminal 3 (which has a different entrance) and is... More

We travel regularly so get the Gold Membership (Stena Plus Lounge free and an £80 discount) and we also get a cabin as the crossing can often be busy and choppy. The Dublin Port to Holyhead ferry accommodation is far superior to the rusty Fishguard to Rosslaire route. The room had a TV and Tea/coffee making facilities (very unusual on... More

We traveled by ferry in our return from Dublin to London. The Stena Line was very comfortable. Our group of six found comfortable chairs and morning coffee and breakfast to enjoy on our crossing. The water was very smooth which made the trip great. The restrooms were clean and spacious. The gift shop was small, but had good items. Would... More

We decided to buy the rail sail fare from Virgin Trains. The cost was very reasonable at 40 pounds one way. All went well going to Dublin to London via Holyhead and we upgraded on the Ulysses ferry for 16 pounds each. The club class was great. Nice seating food and view if you have not done ether crossing before.... More

The ferry was first class with drinks and food, beautiful views and wifi. The boat was well kept, bathrooms were clean, and staff was great. The seats were surrounding tables and seats were reserved. Free magazines and newspapers and TV were supplied. We enjoyed the complimentary beverages and food. The coastline was amazing leaving Ireland . We enjoyed docking in... More

I regurarly make this trip over as I have a little one who lives with her mum in Dublin. The Stena Line service is in itself good and mostly weather permitting on time. The only dissapointing thing is that if your'e a foot passenger, due to the boarding and offloading your journey time is generally increased by upto an hour.... More

We travelled from Holyhead to Dublin, and then the return journey home a few days later. Different (slow) car ferry. First time 11 year old had been on a ferry. Interesting watching the cars load and leaving port. Slightly boring in the middle, where thankfully the iPad and food substituted for entertainment, then back to the deck to watch us... More

A little rough tonight, but gale force winds cannot always be avoided. With stabilisers on maximum not easy to walk around. Food reasonable in quality and price, staff friendly and efficient, what more could you want?
