  • "Sailing to Ireland "

    Great journey, efficient staff and on time. Only one criticism, we booked flexible as the guys were coming home early but we did not know when. I had to call the booking office and it had to change the return trip amendment. Was told that as the out bound journey of our ticket was activated the only way to change the return was to call.

  • "Excellent Staff but a mixed bag. "

    The staff were 100% top notch and friendly, the boats were fabulous and brand new (outbound) and ready for a paint job, but still very comfortable (inbound). Only observations I would make are .. the long term car park doesn't seem very secure, and needs much better lighting. It is very hard to find the way to the long term parking - better signage is needed. The seats in the post check in waiting area are in a bad way, and there is no refreshments that side. Ho9lyhead should be like Dublin, which has a decent cafe to wait in for foot passengers. Dublin check in needs better signage. BUT the big one is, if you are on the late evening service, and you are delayed, getting transport is very hard. I was stuck there at 0400 and without a cab for some time. Taxi apps dont find your location either as its off road .. Stena need to address this issue badly, even if its just advice to walk to the road where Taxis can find you (mine didn't and drove off again)

  • "Perfect crossing"

    We went Holyhead to Dublin the vehicle boarding and disembarkation were trouble free. Stayed in the Stenna Plus which was well worth the extra fee. Quiet, relaxed and lots of yummy pastries to choose from. Best ferry experience you could ask for.

  • "Holyhead-Dublin"

    Book a cabin in advance! I didn't realise how uncomfortable I'd be with a journey at sea. I'd never travel in heavy winds and I realised I should have booked a cabin after an all night drive to make the sailing. Exhausted as I was the staff were very friendly and there wee enough distractions to keep my mind and stomach at ease. The free cinema onboard and staff were a great help.

    Apart from the sea sickness I had to deal with, everything else was just outstanding. It was nice and clean, food was great and the whole experience was fun. The only thing I would like add is the cost. I think its expensive.
