Ferries Best Low-cost Route to Twickenham – Irish Ferries

Ferry travel will be the fans’ best, low-cost travel route to Twickenham for the Heineken Cup final next month, says Irish Ferries.

Irish Ferries Ships

The company, which recorded a surge in bookings after Leinster emerged victorious from their semi-final encounter with Clermont Auvergne, will provide total ferry capacity on its Dublin – Holyhead and Rosslare – Pembroke routes amounting to nearly 8,000 passengers and 4,000 car spaces daily in each direction. Spread across six daily cruise and fast ferry sailings, this is equivalent to around 50 flights.

Another attraction for Irish fans arises from the fact that Irish Ferries will be charging just €30 each way for additional car passengers so that a typical car and four fare is around €200 each way. Based on a car plus four persons travelling Rosslare to Pembroke leaving on Friday 18th May and returning on Sunday 20th May, the fare comes to around €100 per person return.

To accommodate passengers, the company is advising fans to book early and choose from a range of fare options that includes Sail and Rail from Dublin to London from €45 each way.
