"Return Trip to Ireland"
Great service there and back.

"Never do reviews but..."
I travel to Ireland regularly by air and by ferry. I prefer latter as I can take dog, it is more green and feels like the journey part of the trip. Despite having done the journey loads of times, I turned up a day late... so thought I would end up sleeping in the car. With my dog. And paying huge fee. What could have been a real hassle and expensive was treated really efficiently and well and I got to go on the ferry I thought I was on, no hassle and small fee. I will now more than ever try and stick to getting a ferry and Irish Ferries as they were just great. Ferry ran late but I was so relieved that it was not a problem.

"Ferry across to lreland"
The standard of care given to passengers was second to none, I intend to revisit Ireland again and would not travel with any other ferry company

Lovely crossing to the UK and back with Irish Ferries. Got a Club Class ticket. Definitely worth it. Priority boarding and complimentary tea/coffee with snacks whenever we felt like it. Staff were courteous and helpful. Thank you

"Excellent service which other ferry providers could learn from!"
From the moment we drove into Pembroke Docks, the process of security and boarding was efficient, friendly and seamless. There was minimal queuing and, once on board, we were quickly given our cabin key. The cabin was clean and comfortable with its own en suite shower room. There were two beds, complimentary tea and coffee facilities, biscuits, fruit and chocolates. All in all, a very enjoyable experience both going to Ireland and on the return journey. Having also recently travelled to France by ferry, I can say with some authority that the Irish experience was far better.

If you don’t mind the king wait to board with your car and another long wait once the ship has docked, everything else is good. The ship is clean and has many facilities for adults and children that will keep them fed, refreshed and entertained. The on board Wi-fi is a nice idea even if slow. Beware of maritime mobile connection on your phone. That is not the shipping company’s product and is expensive.

Very comfortable ship, friendly staff and lots of space to move around. Lots of tv screens, gaming machines and the facilities overall were excellent. The duty free shop was one of the best stocked I’ve ever seen and the cafeteria was amazing. All positive except for the prices charged for food. Very expensive for breakfasts, sandwiches etc. we had two cheese & ham sambos (pre packed) 1 pint beer and 1 cuppa tea and this was just under £19 !!! Seriously !!!! That’s extortion chaps ✋🏽 Hope my points are noted and thank you. Geraldine Nelson

"Good and not so good"
Punctuality, cleanliness, the crew, no complaints about any of that. I will travel with them again. My only two negative comments are that the free wifi is virtually useless and the lack of vegan food.

"Nothing to complain, or?"
Irish Ferries, I have used the shipping one day earlier and got charged 25€ for this. As I have seen the ship was not fully booked ( Motorcycle) and a addional charge looks for me like a rip off. The rest was ok and no complains.

Friendly staff, clean and tidy, on time and recommended. The Club Class Lounge is worth paying extra for as it is a 4 hr crossing - with free drinks, nibbles, newspapers etc and is on the top deck with wonderful views.

Loved the ferrry. Much nicer than the plane. Relaxed and restful crossing. Loads of comfy seats and good coffee. The meal on the way out could be better. Grub a bit basic. I Like the shop. Staff professional and friendly.

"Simple and Straightforward"
Does what it says on the tin. Easy check-in, easy on-board and easy trip. Only ate in the restaurant on the return leg, all good. Staff were all helpful and friendly. We took a people carrier with loads of kit, so 7 of us arrived at our destination,having had a good laugh on the journey, with all our creature comforts and kits.

On a recent trip to Hey-on-Wye I booked two club class seats for my husband and I. Best decision ever! Great staff in the club lounge(and everywhere else), friendly and attentive. A great way to travel to the UK. We will book the same sailings in future.
