  • "A relaxing day "

    We find this crossing to Ireland very relaxing and it is the best way for us to go there. It is very basic but comfortable and plenty of space to relax. The foor provided is always tasty and a good selection. It is not really suitable for young children as they could get bored, as it is a long day with little for them to do. For adults it is a way to wind down at the beginning and end of a break away.

  • "Punctual service that works"

    The service is primarily for freight and facilities reflect that. However it’s service with a smile with clean comfortable cabins, plentiful food and friendly staff. Will use again.

  • "Alternative to Holyhead "

    We wanted to take our bikes to Ireland so the ferry seemed to be the easiest option. We travelled from east anglia and took the overnight ferry from Liverpool. It was all very easy and smooth. The ferries don't have many passengers as they mostly seem to deal with freight. I would definitely recommend to break up a long journey

  • "P&O Liverpool to Dublin "

    We love this route have been using it for over 20 years The ferry trip is part of the holiday, love the old ships on that route it’s like a mini cruise really.  The onboard team get a gold star ⭐️ food was excellent as was the Guinness and great to be able to do some duty free shopping.  And finally we had a very comfortable en-suite cabin so slept for a few hours.  God willing we hope to use this service again later in the year.

  • "Safe no hassle trip"

    Couldn't really fault the trip. Easy check in both ways, friendly staff, arrived on time.  Meal service was excellent.  Could have done with a snack machine in-between meals as we hadn't taken any provisions. Slamming door by the room meant interupted sleep throughout the journey.  Would use again but pick a different room.

  • "P&O journey "

    We travelled from Liverpool to Dublin on Thursday. It was a pleasant journey. We booked a cabin and relaxed for part of it. We also got breakfast and dinner which we weren’t expecting so that was a bonus. All in all a a good experience and we would book it again.

  • "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.

  • "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

  • "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.

  • "Car traveler to Ireland "

    I chose to use this crossing as I have used it before I find that with the overnight crossing I can relax and catch up on some sleep and have a dinner/supper and a breakfast with a cabin The cabin is basic, comfortable, clean and provides an environment to relax in The meals are wholesome, tasty and filling with an adequate selection to suit all There is hot and cold drinks throughout the trip I find that I am refreshed and ready to continue my journey after the crossing I definitely will be using the service again.
