  • "Irish Ferry experience"

    We had a very smooth sail from Rosslare to Pembroke and back. The staff of the ferry were extremely friendly and very professional. The only thing I didn't like was having sick bags in the dining room at the tables as while we were eating a child was ready to be sick. Parents should take them out of the dining room if they are going to be sick.

  • "An awesome trip"

    Loved the trip across and can recommend to any one. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We booked an early trip by accident for example 2am instead of pm. However the young man at the desk was very nice and rebooked us and we had an enjoyable trip.
