Irish Ferries Increases Capacity on Dublin – Holyhead Route

In order to facilitate the thousands of passengers looking to travel over the Christmas and New Year period, Irish Ferries is transferring its cruise ferry ‘Oscar Wilde’ from its Rosslare – Cherbourg route into service out of Dublin where it will operate alongside the fast ferry ‘Dublin Swift’ and cruise ferry ‘Ulysses’ – the largest ferry on the Irish Sea.

On the southern corridor, Irish Ferries’ cruise ferry ‘Isle of Inishmore’ will continue to operate its service as normal between Rosslare and Pembroke.

Pointing to the fact that Christmas is normally their busiest time of the year, Dermot Merrigan, Irish Ferries Head of Passenger Sales, reminds customers of one of the added bonuses of ferry travel – no baggage charges. “Our message to our passengers preparing to drive home this Christmas with gifts for family and loved ones is to bring the gifts you wish to give, not just those you can carry – it all goes free on the ferry!”
