    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 Swansea

    Mumbles Head is a rock formation and tourist resort situated off to one side of Swansea. If I were to tell you that it comes from the French word mamelles, meaning 'breasts', you could probably work out why it got this name when you look at the rocks.

    You should also take time to sample Welsh Rarebit and Welsh Cakes, both of which will melt in your mouth and leave you craving for more.

      Superb end to my visit to Ireland - my second home
      • After a very slow check in ( reason for my 4*) everything went perfectly - very efficient, freindly staff - good food - good service and comfortable accomodation in our three berth cabim. Very good communication from the bridge and bursar - excellent all round - including the sea conditions. look forward to using the service in the not too far distant future.

      I am very pleased
      • This was one of the nicest Ferry crossings I haave made in recent time. The ship was very nice with good cabins, and I was very impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff, and also by their number. I also found the food excellent.

      Overpriced Rubbish-couldn't find advertised special offer fares
      • Impossible to book. then once we did book it was a lot of money. Compulsary seat had to be booked for one extra child on his own even though he slept in cabin.Onboard facilities minimal,but the bar had a good atmosphere for a quiet drink which is nice compared to some of the noisy bars you get on other ferries. Could have flown and hired a car for a week for less.or driven a bit further.

      Very convenient but......
      • The route itself is very handy and the staff o board are very accomodating, however i found the food available onboard to be very pricey especially for what you're getting. 12 euro for a bottle of water and a curry (which wasnt great) is very expensive. also the internet service onboard is quite expensive, however i do understand the expense involved in bringing such a convenent service onboard that, under normal circumstances, wouldnt be available at all. overall a great route. glad they brought it back.
