Irish Ferries offer only high speed service to Ireland

Following the news that Stena Line are to cut their Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire ferry service, Irish Ferries will be the only operator to provide a fast ferry to Ireland this autumn and winter.

With a journey time of just 1 hour 49 minutes, the Dublin Swift can whisk you from Holyhead to Dublin up to twice a day in each direction. Passenger will be pleased that there is still a high-speed ferry option available for those in a hurry.

Irish Ferries, as well as Stena Line, also continue to offer conventional cruise ferries. Ulysses and the Isle of Inishmore (Irish Ferries) provide two different routes to Ireland and six return sailings every day, year round.

The Swift is a twin-hulled catamaran with a draught of just 3.2 metres. She can carry 700 passengers and 185 cars, and passengers benefit from a Club Class lounge, two bars, a brasserie and café.

Swift fares this autumn start at £113 for a car and driver and you can book here.
