  • "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.

  • "Use of Flexi ticket "

    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

  • "Thank tou"

    I received a text the day before I was due to sail advising me to get to the port earlier because of the busy holiday period. When I was checking in I was advised that payment for the sailing had not been received. I followed the advice given and went to the office in the port. The person who directed me from the check-in booth and the person who dealt with the issue in the office were calm and reassuring. It was confirmed that so had paid and I was given an apology by both persons involved. There were 2 other families in front of me in the office. I am not aware of their concerns but they were engaged in a civil conversation with the person they were assigned to for assistance. They happened to be sat near me in the ship and did not make reference to their issues. I think that this was due to the way in which the personnel at the port communicate with the customers. The boarding and disembarkation of the ship was conducted very smoothly.
