Dublin Liverpool Ferry reviews

  • "Gliding o're the Irish Sea"

    The staff were very helpful starting with the Security men at the gate, through to boarding, room allocation, and dining on board. This was tasty and adequate with a good choice for the evening meal and breakfast.

  • "Relaxing crossing"

    A very pleasant way to travel. The long crossing meant a shorter drive. As this ferry crossing is used mainly for freight, there were few car passengers so there was plenty of space to spread out. Non-stop free help yourself refreshments was a nice touch, not to mention free meals.

  • "Liverpool - Dublin"

    I think the ships are wonderful and the staff on board and on shore are friendly, helpful and polite, My trip to Dublin was delayed because of the weather and staff did all they could to make everyones journey as comfortable as possible. Those that had been waiting for several hours were given a cabin. I had booked a cabin and was very glad that it had been reserved for me. Although we were late setting off myself and several others were cooked a breakfast on request. Coming back I was delayed due to a seven car pile up and unfortunately missed the boat back to Liverpool. Staff in Dublin were most helpful and managed to get me on the morning ferry the next day. They did their best to get me on the night ferry but it was full. For a small admin fee I was on the ferry the next day. All in all I think this is a great service and very convenient for those of us living close to Liverpool.
