    Enjoyable Crossing
    • Rosslare to Pembroke with Irish Ferries

      Enjoyed a smooth comfortable crossing in a relaxing atmosphere. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful.

    No problems
    • Pembroke to Rosslare with Irish Ferries

      Very pleasant, to be honest the fact that the weather was so good was very helpful. The initial queuing at Pembroke on arrival seemed rather chaotic, and the parking area small, though once through to the waiting area it was fine. It was unfortunate that the sailing times are identical to the other Rosslare ferry from Fishguard as this limited choice of travelling times, and leads to congestion at the Irish end. I can understand that this would need cooperation between companies. Staff were v efficient both on car deck and during journey.

    Terrible Custmor Service.
    • Holyhead to Dublin with Irish Ferries

      I was really looking forward to my trip to see a friend in Dublin. I can safely say Irish ferries spoilt my weekend. The customer service staff at Holyhead were incredibly rude, disinterested, unhelpful and lacking in knowledge, when my sailing had been cancelled. I was advised to call a number which isn't staffed on a Sunday to check my return trip which is quite astonishing as the company sails 7 days a week. When raising all my issues with the customer service team in Dublin, they weren't interested in any suggestions I made to ensure this doesn't happen to anyone else. I certainly won't be using this company ever again.

    Delayed journey
    • Pembroke to Rosslare with Irish Ferries

      Very disapointed that due to weather conditions we did not sail on 9th Jan2014. Having paid £344.00 on ref:15840126 we did infact miss a family funeral on the 10th Jan. This was a complete waste of time and money, as we could not get off the ship, and get a refund a couple of hours later. we also had to pay for two nights accomadation, all for nothing!!! staff on board were excellent, but we still found our experience very harrowing, and stressful at having to miss the funeral of a family member. A VERY COSTLEY JOURNEY INDEED!!!! aboard the OSCAR WILDE!!!
