  • "Lovely ferry not enough cabins"

    Our experience on boarding was very chaotic. It took forever to park up. I could not seem to change my booking online from reclining chair to booking a cabin. After boarding we found out all the cabins were full. Having said that the staff were all very friendly and helpful, saying no one had expected such a busy crossing. Everything was kept exceptionally clean including the toilets being regularly checked. the breakfast was fine for me on a full breakfast, but my wife only has cereal, which was a tiny prepacked special K. You have to buy a bottle of milk to use and with a banana was vastly overpriced for her small bowl. Getting off took an hour in Dublin. I can only assume the delays at both ends were due to such a large amount of cars traveling. So mixed views. I hope if I use them again I can get a cabin and have a smoother journey.

  • "Impressive vessel but..."

    Very efficient staff, the boat itself is impressive and all staff I encountered were lovely. However... issues with the wifi system left me high and dry for 19 hours, was trying to buy the premium wifi(but saucy at 7.90e for 2 hours usage) but unfortunately could not connect. Not the end of the world but not ideal either.

  • "Excellent trip on W.B. Yeats"

    I was very impressed with Irish ferries ship W.B. Yeats. The ship is modern with spacious cabins (the 2 unused cabins are stowed in the ceiling which is very clever and gives more space in the cabin) and the bed was comfortable. There were plenty facilities and the crew were very polite and helpful. The full Irish breakfast was a particular highlight for me as it was very delicious and plentiful. I would have no hesitation travelling on this ship again.

  • "Like clockwork "

    Easy and quick boarding and exit , all staff were friendly. Food was of good quality. Toilets clean.. only two comments really, play area couldn’t be used because of raucous unsupervised older children and the carpets need vacuuming as our toddler kept picking up crumbs from the floor. Besides that all food, roomy with lots of space.

  • "Off loading baggage"

    Smooth crossing with no issues When we got to Dublin, the floor team controlling baggage reclaim handled a situation relatively imcompetently. There were several lines of passengers trying to view the samw carousel, and because many people couldn’t see the belt the same bags were going round and round. Clearly the bags on the belt belonged to those at the edge of the crowd, but the team failed to notice this. One woman’s cello fell of the belt because of how packed it was and she was visibly very distressed. I suggested that the team announced for all passengers to stepback a bit so everyone could see, but what womab did was just walk up to a few passengers and suggest that these few individuals let thr passengers behind them see. What the situation needed was a tanoi system announcement announcing to all passengers to take few step backs. Because of this, most people took upwards of 20mins to get their bags.

  • "Frustrating experience. "

    Sat nav on the car took me to a port entrance which was gated off despite signs directing traffic to the ferry that way. Another car pulled up beside me confused too. We had to drive around looking for alternative routes When I found the correct entrance there was a roundabout with a large sign directing me to a check-in point but when I arrived it was for freight only. Another car full of men went the same way and end up there too. When I enquired I was told to backtrack. Eventually finding the car entrance, all appeared closed and we were all confused but eventually saw one open in the distance. The signage at the port is so confusing. On the ferry, I had to enquire where the Club Class lounge was as it was not indicated on the ticket or on signs inside. The lounge was lovely but even here the signage was crazy. You had to go through an emergency exit to get to a toilet! The relaxing surroundings of the lounge were ruined by a group of very noisy travellers shouting to each other and into there mobile phones the whole crossing. Other passengers were raising their eyes and grumbling throughout. Apart from checking their passes, nothing else was done. We were surprised that this group did have passes but they would be easy to reuse often as there was no ID or even date on them. I would only use Irish Ferriesas second choice on this route from now on.

  • "WB Yeats"

    It has been some time since I used the Holyhead - Dublin Ferry and would normally opt to fly or if I need to take my car, take the sea cat option for the sake of saving just those extra few minutes. This time I had very little time to arrange my trip, and was VERY pleasantly surprised, and impressed with the WB Yeats!! The boarding / loading and disembarking process is easy with well organised crew on hand to assist, guide and direct. The vehicle decks are clean and well lit, with ample space between vehicles. The weather forecast for the trip was not good, and I expected a rough outward journey. Again, this is where the larger vessels have an advantage over the sea cats, and the trip although it was rough, was far better than previous ferry trips. I can only put this down to the new ship? My return journey, although not flat calm was much smoother. The ship itself is immaculate. Very clean and tidy with plenty of comfortable seating, a choice of dining facilities, offering a superb selection of excellent hot and cold food and drinks. There is a soft play area for the children, and even a cinema on board! There are multiple TV screens around the ship and Wi Fi is available. There is also a well stocked shop on the 11th deck. The crew were all very pleasant and professional and operated with a quiet efficiency. On reflection, I may now choose to book the WB Yeats every time I make this trip with my car. It is well worth the extra few minutes for the comfort and stability this ship offers. Well done!!

  • "Hit & Miss"

    We traveled on both the Ulysses and the Yeats. The Yeats is by far the better boat, with the 'Food corridor' on the Ulysses very old fashioned and cramped. The canteen food was hit-and-miss on both boats, much of it overcooked despite being among the first to eat but some of it - especially the pie - very good. Going by boat takes about twice as long as fly-drive, but for a group of six it was also half the price of renting a car or two - plus we can take loads of stuff (on our laps!). Landing at Dublin was confusing - we went through the centre of the city but the tunnel/toll road would have cost us an extra 20 mins and €13.10 to get South. I guess timing is everything there. On the Welsh side the dual carriageway is almost continuous from the M6 to the port, very easy.
