"Nothing but good on Irish Ferries"

We loved the crossing from Pembroke to Rosslare on 3rd June. Everyone prior to loading was very helpful, and the onboard experience was great. We upgraded to club Class, and that was well worth the extra, we felt. All in all the ship appeared well maintained, the staff were more than helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We have used other ferry companies from Ireland to UK, and also in NZ. This was right up there for competency, service and friendliness. We would thoroughly recommend Irish Ferries.

We prebooked on the internet and it was very successful. Easy to find car park, little delay in loading and unloading. Good facilities on board. It was a smooth journey both ways. Highly recommend.

"A calm, pain-free crossing"
Reviewed 23 June 2014 by Lloyd
We had a great crossing to Ireland. Weather calm and all went very smoothly. We wondered why walk on passengers needed to board a bus but it probably is a safety issue. Not so good for the environment. Staff all helpful and polite. Would have liked soya milk on board otherwise great experience.

This charming walled town dates back over 900 years and is famous for its Norman Castle, one of Britain's finest and one of the best known in Wales. It was the birthplace of Henry VII, founder of the Tudor dynasty.
Along the main street with its predominance of Georgian buildings you'll find a variety of shops, banks and restaurants. The mill pond runs parallel to the main street and is a peaceful spot to watch the swans, herons, ducks and other water birds. You may even be lucky enough to spot an otter.
Every year the medieval 'walled town' of Pembroke and its Castle are the venue for many important events several of which are rooted in the town's historic past such as Shakespearean productions, medieval banquets, military tattoos and displays by the Sealed Knot Society.
Rosslare (Ros Láir in Irish, meaning "the middle peninsula"), is a village in County Wexford. Rosslare has been a tourist resort for at least 100 years. It prides itself on being the sunniest spot in Ireland, and records bear this out: Rosslare receives 300 hours more sunshine each year than the average place in Ireland. The long sandy strand is a Blue Flag Beach so it attracts swimmers and families, while there are a number of good golf courses in the vicinity. A long sandspit stretching north from Rosslare separates Wexford Harbour from the Irish Sea. Until the early 1920s, this spit stretched for many miles north, almost touching the Raven Point and giving a very narrow mouth to Wexford Harbour. At the end of the spit was a small fort called Rosslare Fort. In the winter of 1924-25 a storm breached the spit and it was gradually washed away. The fort was abandoned and now all that is left is an island at low tide.
