"Very good for wheelchair user"
I am a wheelchair user and it was a first time to travel with a ferry. I stayed on a couch with other travelers. and I felt no problems. But the couch room is next to the children's corner. I did not mind, but for someone with high sensibility, the feeling may differ. I will travel the ferry again because it is cheap, confortable and enjoyable.

After being let down by Brittany ferries we opted to sail with Irish Ferries to Dublin. First time on this ferry and have to say we were delighted with everything, from the cabin which was airy and spacious with a great mirror for the ladies. We ate at boylans bistro and the food was the nicest we have had in any ferry. The breakfast was also tasty and worth the money.This ferry is new and very modern with lots of sitting areas , a lovely quiet area to read and lots of space . All staff members that we met were friendly, polite and helpful when required. An easy boarding system and just as well organised getting off. All in all a really good experience and we will definitely use this ferry again.

As the old children's song has it: We’re going North, South, East, West, And up the Irish sea! A bottle o' rum to settle me tum, And that’s the life for me! Didn't even need the bottle o' rum. This is now my chosen way to get to Belfast from Switzerland. Once upon a time, I went via the Chunnel and then up the length of England to Cairnryan for the ferry to Belfast, driving on British motorways that are usually (a) crowded (b) under repair, or (c) both at the same time. This way is much, much better, and much of it is because of the excellence of the Irish Ferries service. The ships are grand, the food is good, the cabins are comfortable, you leave at a good time and your arrive at a good time, well rested and ready for the journey north. Yes, it's more expensive than the other way, but, in my estimation, much preferable and hassle-free.
