    • Holyhead to Dublin with Irish Ferries

      My Irish Ferries crossing was total chaos. There was an entire Youth Orchestra, with instruments so ordinary passengers were lost in the shuffle. In the waiting area, there were few seats and many of the plugs for charging phones were located 6 feet above your head. Boarding was awful with a vast line of travelers and 2 or 3 frazzled employees taking tickets and checking Passports. They were very nice but it was ridiculously inefficient. You need a much better plan for loading the shuttles. We were crammed onto crowded shuttles and everyone was in a panic to get on. When we arrived at the Ferry we had to walk through the truck loading area, which has a very uneven surface, not safe for pedestrians. Everyone arrived in a mob and there was a dash for seating. Once you finally get on the ferry and obtain a seat, it is better. Irish Ferries needs to figure out a much more streamlined way to board passengers. it is a lengthy and miserable process.
