Southern Ireland Ferry

Its our 30th wedding anniversary in June so as a surprise I have looked at the ferry Holyhead or Liverpool to Dublin for 10 days. I nearly collapsed when the price of between £408 and £490 popped up for just 2 adults with a 7 mtr van in June, is that correct !!!

YES i think you find P&O the cheapest from Liverpool if things are back to normal as cheap or cheaper to fly rent a car and static caravan

Always has been an expensive bit of water.
May well change and get cheaper to attract traffic given the loss of landbridge commercial traffic, however more likely they’ll drop the frequency.

I wonder how much they will charge for a MH on the route to ROI from Dunkirk if it ever gets going, and takes private vehicles.



Anyone got any news? Is it DFDS that is proposing to operate the route?

Think all ferry prices have gone up this year . Our trip Rosslare to Cherbourg is usually around £450 return ( Aug/Oct) , this year it is £660.
