Great ferries. Cabins, staff and facilities are excellent. Food and drink prices very reasonable as is the onboard shop. We go Harwich to Holland then on to Venice/Greece every year, I just wish the 27 hour Venice to Greece ferry was half as good.
Irish is taught in the Republic, they want uniformity, a tad too much maybe but please look at the DUP Victorian times policies before supporting them in any form.
Most of the sub continent are English by grand father rights then? but why do Sherpas have their rights regularily denied?
I was born in England, but consider myself European.
The seperation of paragraph
But I didn't as I'd ended the sentence with a question mark
Was thinking about taking the kids here for a day trip, and was wondering if anyone knows what we could do in Belfast that kids would enjoy?
Pity its not on fridays, glorious 12th would have been good.
Thanks, I will edit this out of the description. I don't wan't anyone to be stung :)
Not correct. I do the fishguard-Rosslare trip several times a year and I never return on the return leg and have never been charged more. I have read the terms and conditions before, but thought I'd read them again to make sure. The only time it becomes an issue is if you try and only use the return leg and not to outward (say you were already in Ireland and wanted to catch the return leg of a cheap fishguard-Rosslare return). In this case you'd have to buy a ticket on the day
I booked singles Dublin to Holyhead yesterday for £37 each! I think I could have got day returns from Dublin for 7EUR and thrown away the return ticket. 😧
Great price but I can take 90 min bus to dublin for £15 return :) just until brexit
There is literally nothing in Rosslare. Went on a day trip there and couldn't wait to get back on the ferry to come home
when I was younger it was the Sands nightclub till 2am and then if we timed it right the party continued on the Pembroke to Rosslare ferry (aka Booz cruise). However, some of the roughest crossings imaginable, the Irish sea can be harsh!
They don't sail to Dún Laoghaire anymore hence no DART ticket. There's no train at Dublin port but it's closer to the city centre and a bus meets the ferry. It's €6 return to the city centre.
Still an extortionately priced stretch of water!!! (mad)
Did this two years ago. Was really good but hiring a car was quite expensive other side. Was just about cheaper than paying the car fare.
Sailebrate. Just awful. Heat for deal.tho. 🔥

it's a great deal as you can return for the same price until near the end of the year. 2 weeks fares cost to Eire = £6.00 per person.
It's a great deal, have done it many times in the past. Just a shame the last train leaves Holyhead before the ferry arrives
Assuming that the person is a visa required national (although I believe exemptions exist for Chinese, Indian and perhaps one or two other nationalities with LTR in the UK) then possession of a valid Irish Visa would be required for entry for the purpose of tourism. This is unless the person is travelling with their British citizen spouse to Ireland and if the couple is in possession of their marriage certificate, then EU treaty rights apply and a visa is not required.

If the bar prices are reasonable you can get lagered up onboard ship
I think they've thought of that! T&Cs "Passengers are not permitted to bring luggage"! As regards, buying a 2nd ticket, the deal is also available from Dublin to Holyhead for €6.50 from stenaline.ie.
wow really ? that should be in their T&C's then.
That has never happened to me when travelling as a foot passenger.
Dublin year after year..
I wish they would do France again
looks quite tempting although still 10 hours on a train ... i wish i could just the person on a test flight nearby but all the flights i can find from southampton airport within the UK have an expensive train route back if the person doesn't feel comfortable traveling by plane, and they feel too clostraphobic on buses
You can but last time i lived in northern ireland beside the donegal border the duty free cigs worked out more expensive than the uk lol
Yup - cheapest I could find was a 1 bed AirBnB flat on Parnell Street for £250 for 2 nights. (I ended up cancelling and losing £100 deposit as my best friend had moved to Lucan, just west of Dublin, so could stay for free). It's a crazy central-London style pricing hell in Dublin.
Great Find (y)

Me and the Mrs did it once with pedal bikes. (We came from Belfast), packed light and stayed in a campsite in Stranraer overnight!
Good deal, voted hot. Does anyone know a good way to get to Cairnryan without the car to make this deal worthwhile.
Is it possible to book the bus separately after booking this deal?
It takes 7 hours from liverpool to. So if you want a cabin its extra.
"C'mon do it nooooowwww!" (Arnold Schwarzenegger - in 'Predator')
Nice. Just checked 18th August for a car and 4 people return and it came back as £350! Then checked car and 1 person plus 3 foot passengers and it totalled £260. Does anyone see a problem with that?
take a train up to Conway or Bangor. more in dublin than in holyhead!
Nothing it's an absolute dump
Holyhead is a hell of a long way from Llandudno -
Totally agree! We stayed in Dublin for four nights. Spoke to a local, older chap in the market on our first day and asked for the best pubs, places to see and where to eat. We had a fabulous time, saw lots of interesting places, including a short but beautiful train trip to a lovely little place on the coast called Howth. There were seals in the harbour! <3 We bought a multi ride bus ticket to get around and the buses were as frequent as any other large city I've visited. Also had one of the best Chinese meals I have ever eaten in Dublin Chinatown! It can be as expensive or as cheap as you make it. We had a amazing break :3
Worth noting Liverpool to Belfast is £5 each way too. It's over 6 hrs and you can fly in 40 mins though and the train will cost me more to get from Cheshire to Liverpool.
Nothing you can't watch on a video as everything is on TVs in it anyway ..no grand staircase or anything grand at all ..shameless tricksters
I agree, the outside of the building is the most impressive part, better saving the money and not going inside!
Oops heat for the day trips wish I had time I love Glasgow
It's nowhere near belfasts top tourist attraction despite the claims ..yes a lot of people go there but if they bothered to hang around for their feedback it's disappointing and I'm from Belfast and been to Titanic
Ahh would have loved this if it was other way round! Cheers tho. Hot :)
what do you mean, 'What if...'?
it's half price if u Don't :D
What if you don't have any friends?
Expired. Went to /setsale part of website and it said so.
expired now :\
Great deal thanks!
Deal offered by Stena Line.
Heat added, I just bagged a week away for family for £8 in October 2016 half term.
Yes, I received this also but must admit I forgot all about it yesterday when posting. There is probably a different discount code behind it.
Wouldn't be a big fan of boats, usually full of those with no fixed abode
I received an email from them on 27/1/16 saying so, it seems it depends on which route you use, when discount ends.
I suggest you read their website....you arrive at 17:05, a great day out in Dublin!
If u want a day in Dublin rather? I'm sure many would!!
Great if you want a day in holyhead, no good otherwise.
