  • "Disappointed with Direct Ferries "

    As we couldn’t get booked directly with P&O we made our booking with direct ferries. Having paid €303 on Tuesday evening for a sailing on Thursday evening they then informed us on Wednesday that due to weather issues our booking was cancelled however on contacting P&O we found out that sailing was going ahead. As our ferry was within 48hrs direct ferries wouldn’t deal with our inquiries. However P&O were great as usual to deal with especially Adrienne in freight as our booking was car and passenger. They looked after us brilliantly start to finish. Thank you team P&O from directional staff on ground to purser and staff on board the “Norbank” . Not one bit happy with direct ferries. Thanks for taking time to read this.

  • "Fantastic trip with this ferry"

    Travelled for a funeral in the UK. This ferry included breakfast and dinner and unlimited tea n coffee or hot chocolate. The cabins were clean and the two birth ones were not bunk beds which was fantastic. There was a shower and toilet ensuing and the price was the cabin was a lit cheaper than other ferry companies. The staff were really helpful.

  • "A great trip!"

    I arrived at Dublin port feeling very tired but my ferry journey was excellent and I when I got Liverpool I was feeling refreshed. I decided to pay for a cabin (£22.50) for the day - it was clean and quiet and I was able to sleep. The breakfast and late-afternoon meals were very good, the staff were polite, efficient and friendly. Couldn't have been better!

  • "Peaceful "

    The Norbank could do with a refurbishment as it looks old and worn compared to other companies that do the Ireland crossing. However it does the job and it’s quiet. Because of the long crossing there is rarely kids running around. The cabins are comfy and clean. The meals are plentiful and varied. It suits my needs very well. At arrival on either side, I feel refreshed and not frazzled. The staff from check in and on board are very friendly and helpful.

  • "March 20 experience"

    Our first time on the Liverpool Dublin service. Clearly designed for lorries indeed, on our trips there were no more than half a dozen cars each way. On the plus side this means the public spaces are relatively empty, the food simple but well cooked and tea/coffee/ fruit juice is always available; all included in the ticket price. On the negative side the entertainment is confined to a couple of televisions, and a bar. The cabins are simple, clean but without any frills. So provided you can entertain yourself for 8 hours this is excellent way to cross the Irish sea

  • "Over 60 traveller."

    Travel frequently on ferries. This suited me as Liverpool was handy for my destination. It was also handy to sleep on board and wake refreshed which I did. The ship as we were told from the start is not suited for people with mobility problems so don't come with lots of bags to carry up stairs. Next time I will bring a rucksack as two hands to hold onto rails going up stairs would be useful. Otherwise a very good service.

  • "Excellent service in difficult conditions. "

    As usual you provided a great service for your passengers during some of the worst weather conditions of the winter. Though there was a short delay on the return journey, the service, accommodation and food were of a very good standard.

  • "A nice leisurely way to travel. "

    Rather than put up with the turmoil and hassle of travelling to Ireland by air we chose to use the Liverpool to Dublin ferry. Specifically designed for freight traffic the boats accommodate a small number of cars, vans and motorhomes. Loading and unloading is easy and the helpful and efficient staff ensures a pleasant crossing. With a basic but very clean cabin and two meals included in the price it is the same cost as flying, the only difference being you arrive refreshed and calm ready to carry on with your journey. Highly recommended.

  • "Good ferry service."

    I've done this route a number of times and it's always good. The most recent used a smaller vessel, the Norbank, which is smaller and not as comformable as the former ships I've used. But, the staff are always courteous, efficient and try to make your experience positive. The on board food is good enough, but plentiful, so no complaints there. Overall, very good.

    We travelled from Liverpool to Dublin and back on a two week holiday to Ireland and found it a very relaxed and pleasant way to travel.Two meals helped the journey along and tea and coffee available throughout was also a treat.The affordability of cabins also allowed us to sleep for much of the journey.The only noisy and unpleasant bit is leaving and returning to the car, but it is a brief inconvenience .

  • "Pleasantly surprised"

    We were pleasantly surprised to get two full, free meals (which were quite good). Also, our stateroom was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and we had a private shower. If you travel at night you can take advantage of getting some sleep on your way to your journey. I would definitely recommend this ferry.
