Cork Roscoff Ferry reviews

  • "Nice experience"

    Had a most enjoyable sea crossing to Roscoff, smoother than any cat, train or plane journey. The vessel is clean, we'll equipped, perhaps some improvement could be done on the signposting of different areas.

  • "very happy with the service, kids loved it too"

    Took a ferry from Cork to France with family and a car. The service was very good, cabin spotlessly clean while the food and drinks on board were not overpriced at all, in principle they were cheaper than in your local pub. We will definitely use it in future and probably make it a fix part of our annual holidays for a few years. I would only wish for it to be a bit cheaper but then we booked only a week in advance and at a time when both France and Ireland had school holidays.

Cork Guide

The Irish city of Cork is located in the south west of the country in the province of Munster. It is Ireland's second largest city and stands on an island on the River Lee which divides into two channels to the west and east of the city. Quays and docks can be found to the east of the city where both channels merge again. From here the river flows to Lough Mahon and Cork harbour, one of the world's largest natural harbours.

The city has retained its heritage although little remains of the medieval walled city. Much though is retained from the 18th century and Victorian era onwards. The retail trade in Cork city includes a mix of both modern, state of the art shopping centres and family owned local shops. Department stores cater for all budgets, with expensive boutiques for one end of the market and high street stores also available.

Passenger facilities at Cork's ferry terminal are limited and comprise mainly of waiting areas and refreshments. For more facilities, visitors should head to Ringaskiddy where a post office offers a bureau de change and tourist information. The city of Cork is not much further up the sound for a much larger selection of services. Ringaskiddy can provide ATMs, restaurants, petrol, lower market accommodation (B&Bs) and some convenience item shopping.

Roscoff Guide

The French village of Roscoff lies on the north coast of Brittany and is a perfect introduction to everything Brittany has to offer. A popular attraction in the city are the 16th century granite buildings that jostle against the coast along with the many restaurants that serve excellent local produce and the small galleries and gift shops. The town specialises in seafood dishes and traditional Breton crêpes, which you can enjoy at one of the many street-side crêperies.

Alternatively, sample some famous Brittany thalassotherapy - rejuvenating, healing and relaxing therapies using seawater and sea products. Brittany is one of the 27 regions of France, occupying a large peninsula in the north west of the country, lying between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south, and its capital is Rennes.

The port has been operational since 1973 although passengers won't find extensive facilities at the terminal. Ferry services depart to both Rosslare and Cork in Ireland. Crossing times are around 17 hours to Rosslare and 13 hours to Cork.
