Irish Ferries has announced a new partnership with coach operator Eurolines that will make it easier for people based in London and Birmingham to travel to Ireland.
Customers planning to take ferries from Holyhead to Dublin
will be able to make use of a coach service that will begin tomorrow (July 16th) and run until September 5th.
Passengers will be picked up in London at 06:30 and in Birmingham at 09:00 every weekday, with the coach then heading straight to Holyhead and onto Ulysses, the world's largest car ferry.
The service is scheduled to arrive in Dublin at 18:10 each day.
Declan Mescall, head of passenger sales for Irish Ferries
, said: "We have operated a London to Cork service with Eurolines for some time and we're delighted to be chosen to operate the popular Dublin route.
"The coach/ship journey is not only great value but with its daytime travel a civilised experience. It is also a greener journey: travelling by coach and ship like this produces six times less carbon emissions than flying."
People planning to visit Ireland can also take ferries from Pembroke to Rosslare
with the company, while Stena Line
operates ferries from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire
