    The trip itself was pleasant and staff were friendly and helpful, however I had a shock when I received my mobile phone bill as I had roaming on I was charged more than £33.00 for the time I was on the ferry (one way) even though I didn’t use my phone l turned roaming off on the return journey. .

  • "Swift sailings"

    Only book for this ship if you know the weather will be fine and the sea calm.Our outward trip was very good. The homeward trip however was cancelled due to inclement weather. This caused us all sorts of problems. The weather turned out to be no worse than the outward. I got the feeling the two swift cancellations were to too fill normal ferries. This led to us having to leave earlier than planned,  This in turn led to losing our money on a hotel reservation we could not keep. This cancellation seemed to be made for reasons other than bad weather. Our homeward trip was turned into a nightmare and money was lost on reservations. Be aware these ferries only sail in near calm conditions. I would recommend Irish Ferries. Subject to checking the weather.

  • "Excellent journey"

    I was a first time user of the ferry. A bit nervous about the experience. I didn't need to worry, everything about the trip was made so easy. Text reminders about travel times, easy directions from the crew to parking. Friendly and helpful staff on the boat. Good directions getting off. A wonderful experience. Thank you.

  • "Easy to use"

    I booked the day before I travelled as I wasnt sure I would be taking the car or a motorbike. In the end I took the motorbike (although the weather wasnt very kind) and sailed on the Epsilon going over and the Swift on the way back. Easy to book and only had to be there half an hour before sailing with Irish Ferries. Have used in the passed and will use again. The Epsilon is a bit basic but its got seating and hot food, The Swift is a bit better with the seating and quicker so if your budget allows, go for the Swift.

    Contacted you to change my ferry time but you replied you couldn't help needed to be done by Irish Ferries. Spent the day trying to resolve this (poor Internet access where we were staying) couldn't contact IF by phone. In the end you did resolve it but the wait in-between was quite stressful
