Cheapest Ferry route from UK to Ireland?

We're in Edinburgh and are planning to take our car across to roam around both Northern and Southern Ireland for a month.

We don't mind taking the ferry from anywhere from the UK (as we need to visit family anyway)

Where would be the cheapest ferry be from UK to Ireland (either ones)? For eg. would taking the ferry from Glasgow to Northern Ireland be cheaper than taking one from Liverpool to Southern Ireland?

Any idea? Thanks

Ferry fares change depending on the time of year AND the time of day you travel.

You'd need to do the research yourself inputting your dates and preferred time of travel.

Irish Ferries and Stena cross the Irish Sea.

www.irishferries.com

www.stenaline.ie

But there are also companies such as www.directferries.ie who offer the best prices as well. They are consolidators rather than actual ferry companies.

That's exactly what I do, just go on individual websites and find out prices. Not sure about ferries (strangely) b but try deleting your cookies after looking around might be worthwhile.

If you get the ferry from Liverpool it goes to Dublin, so not quite the south more like east. You can ferry from Pembroke or Fishguard to rosslare which is south.

For prices it's best to check the Irish ferries and stena websites
