    We booked the SWIFT ferry at a premium over the other ferries as it was according to Irish Ferries to be fast and comfortable. In the end with just about 24 hours notice both on our bookings both to Ireland and back home, they cancelled the SWIFT and suggested other alternatives which ruined both the first and last days of our Irish holiday. On the way out, we had to take a ferry four hours later than booked that took and hour longer to arrive, dumping us in Dublin and evening rush hour. By the time we got to Carlingford, it was all we could do to fall into bed without a meal.
    On our return today, we had to get up at 4 am to rush from Waterford to be they for 7:30. Yes Irish ferries had cancelled the Swift we were booked on for late morning, so we had to miss breakfast and race up the M9 missing out our planned trip over the Wicklow mountains.

    They say it is bad weather but we noticed on the Ulysses that they pushed us off to that it was not very full and a cynical person could surmise they are offering the SWIFT at booking time but cancelling it if they don’t get enough takers and bumping people to whatever suits them.

    My recommendation is to avoid using their SWIFT service if you have planned travel and activity arrangements as part of your journey. I don’t believe you can trust them to run it and they will dump you on alternatives that may ruin your plans. Far better to take the hit of a longer passage on a boat that cannot mess around the schedules , like the Ulysses.

    When we spoke to other travellers, they told us this last minute cancellation is not uncommon for the SWIFT.

    So you have been warned. CAVEAT EMPTOR…..

    Great way of getting around the congested city. They run frequently but get packed at peak times. We utilised a 3-day Leap Card which gave us unlimited use of the trams, but also buses and suburban trains. You do get to see over the shoulder of the driver which is always fun if you like to pretend to drive it.

    Hygge lounge not worth it, the majority of the seats don’t recline at all, they’re just like cinema seats. It is nice and quiet except for a few people snoring so just fyi.

    Cabin is worth it though for the security and comfort. Would recommend just booking a cabin if you have a really late or early sailing and would like some sleep.

    Didn’t eat onboard but had tea and felt the service was nice.

    This is a great way to get out of the City. We went to Howth which is a lovely rail journey to the seaside. Clean & good value for money.

    It's paddy's day. I know town is going to be a nightmare. So when I see that my bus directly from cork to Dublin airport takes a surprise stop in Dublin city I'm beyond annoyed. This has added an extra 40 mins on a journey that's long enough especially when not advertised.

    This tunnel should come with a warning since you’ll probably struggle to hold your breath for the entire length as it is almost three miles long. Sticking to the 50mph speed limit means it takes approx three-and-a-half minutes to get through.

    Good way to experience the river liffey (albeit short). I think this is pitched as a comuter service but grand for a short trip and only 2 euro

    Caught the ferry from Liverpool to Dublin on Monday and returned on Friday,
    although mainly for freight the ferries are comfortable and clean although there are some stairs to negotiate which rules out persons with disabilities. On the plus side two free meals are included and the price is great.

    I recently moved to Ireland and arrived from the US with a lot of luggage and my dog. It was easy to schedule my transfer from the airport via website and email when still in the US. Before departure Dave ensured me everything was all set and that he would monitor my flight to ensure if there were delays everything would be fine. Upon arrival Dave contacted me by text and was there waiting in arrivals for me. A short pleasant ride later and my dog and I arrived at our new home. Dave was wonderfully welcoming and made me feel comfortable and welcome.

    We are very happy to leave a shining review for Stephen and his company. The service he provided was impeccable from start to finish. All communication was prompt. A good quality car seat was provided for our 18 months old son. In relation to punctuality, Stephen was 20 minutes early for our pick up. He also waited patiently for us on our return despite us experiencing delays with our luggage. It was overall a stress free and professional experience and we would have no hesitation in recommending Leinster taxi to anybody we know. We will personally be using them again in the future.

    Booking was so easy and the whole experience was exceptional. Our driver Fintan was the nicest person and if you’re looking for an airport transfer I can highly recommend Corporate Transfers. We will definitely be using it again.

    we have used LFLfor all our travel needs not just in Dublin but we use them to book transfers etc for all of our global travelling and love the service they provide.
    They are very professional and punctual. We have on several occasions made some last minute changes to our itinerary and they were incredibly accommodating.
    and are always going the extra distance to provide outstanding customer services

    I would highly recommend them

    Well what can I say, Brian Dowling is AMAZING as a driver, person, professional. Last week he drove my elderly parents from Dublin airport to their home in Derry, taking great care with them and having tremendous patience with my Daddy who is in the beginnings stage of Dementia and repeats everything over and over. Brian is reliable, professional, and has a great way of making you feel safe with him and have 100% faith in his driving abilities.Brian has picked me up by myself from Dublin airport and taken me to Derry a few times and has driven both my Husband and I to the same location. We can't say enough good things about Dowling Chauffeur Service, they will always receive our top ratings, the are EXCELLENT. We have even become friends with Brian and look forward to our next trip to Ireland so we can all catch up. Brian is a STAR!!!!!!!!

    We booked Donal for our sisters' trip to Galway, spending two laughter-filled days traveling to the Cliffs and the Burren, with a last-minute side trip to track down our Irish ancestors; then to Connemara and the spectacular Kylemore Abbey and lunch in Clifden. Donal was accommodating, knowledgeable and flexible to the nth degree, which we so appreciated. We would 100 percent travel with Donal when we return to Ireland.

    Big John led our family on an epic adventure through Ireland. He planned everything, from the quaint stays in the sea side towns to the stops in villages to see local life, historic sites, amazing fresh food, and had the tips and tricks you want to avoid all the tourist crowds and lines. He was always early with a plan and we embarked for the day. The van was spotless and he made sure we were always comfortable. He was fun to be around, whether sharing a story, singing a song, or educating us on the history of his culture. Our trip was memorable and delightful and a major contribution to feeling stress free was that all the details were handled and we just had to show up each day and soak in the enjoyment. It was a pleasure spending time with Silver Service and I highly recommend using Big John and Silver Service for your trip to Ireland.
