About Cork

St. Finn Barre's Cathedral, a fine example of French Gothic architecture, The Tudor - Gothic University College with its attractive riverside quadrangle, the Blackrock Castle, The Crawford Gallery with interesting sculpture collection, Beamish Stout Brewery, the Jameson Heritage Centre, The Royal Gun Powder mills along with open air street markets which represent the folk culture of Cork are just a few of the many attractions in and around Cork.

Cork city is located slightly upstream on the River Lee to the northwest of Cork Harbour, whereas Ringaskiddy lies on the lower harbour on the western shore and has therefore been developed into a modern deep water ferry port because of its easy access to Cork and surrounding cities.

Thanks to a sustained period of traffic growth and investment in modern facilities extending over the past 35 years, Cork is today acknowledged as one of Europe's most progressive and successful ferry ports.

Cork is a very important sea port, offering shortest and fastest ferry route to the continent from Ireland. The Port of Cork is enjoying high traffic with an average of 36 cruise ships scheduled.

About Roscoff

Roscoff is well connected to UK and Ireland and thereby aids the development of tourism and revive the traditional trading routes between them.

Roscoff is a charming little seaside town with 16th century granite houses, small specialist shops and bars and restaurants. Roscoff is a perfect place to be to if you like to enjoy a quiet holiday by the seaside, as the town maintains a relatively low key apart from the old harbour and the rue Gambetta.

Roscoff benefits from a mild climate throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream and also because it is shielded by Ile de Batz island. Some of the attractions in Roscoff apart from the beautiful beaches (one of the best is the Laber beach about 1Km away from the old harbour) are the Jardin Exotique (the tropical garden), Notre Dame de Croatz Batz (church) and the Aquarium.

Brittany's sea is known for its healing properties and hence a visit to the region's oldest Thalassotherapy centre established in 1899 is worthwhile.

    A convenient route
    • This route cut a day off my planned crossing from Dover getting me to south of France with time to spare. Very convenient but a little expensive.

    A very enjoyable trip
    • I travel to Ireland every year in July and January and definitely my favourite and most comfortable crossings are always with Brittany ferries. A great pity they don't do Cork Roscoff in the winter!

    Some surprising inadequacies
    • The ferry itself was pleasant enough, but I was just amazed that there was only one restaurant on board (not counting the self - service one) and the fact that the people actually had to line up for at least an hour to book a seat. The duty free shop was also very basic. We were foot passengers and for some reason all our crowd, with all luggage and children had to go down the staircase on foot in Roscoff and to get out through the exit for cars! I thought it was very dangerous.
