About Dublin

The cosmopolitan and lively Irish capital should be a must on anybody's European itenerary. Like any European capital it would be impossible to describe all there is to see and do.

The number one attraction is the Guinness Storehouse - the home of the "The Black Stuff" Dublin's world famous dry stout. Other attractions include St Patrick's cathedral - what would Ireland be without St Paddy after all? The National Gallery, Botanic Gardens, the National Acquatic Centre, Dublin Zoo, the list is almost endless.

However, when you leave Dublin, what you'll remember above all else is the atmposphere: the small pubs filled with dancing and music and perhaps above all else the friendliness of the locals.

About Holyhead

Holyhead is the largest town on the island of Anglesey. However, Holyhead is actually on a linked smaller island - Holy Island - hence the name Holyhead. The town and port are easily reached by car by taking the A55.

Holyhead and Anglesey are dream destinations for lovers of the outdoors. Here you'll find world-class golf-courses, fishing, nature trails and stunning beaches. If you're thinking about spending some time here before or after your ferry journey, then you certainly should not hesitate

    Great on board staff and amenities
    • The check in process is better at Dublin than at Holyhead where the kiosks were slow to open and car drivers were confused about where to queue. Also at Holyhead although we were travelling Premium and should have had express boarding we were amongst the last to board. We asked for the reason and the crew member explained that it was to enable us to disembark more quickly. A perfectly good reason but until we asked there was no communication bout why we were last to board. Once on board the Stena team there were superb and really looked after us. Departure was delayed because of Storm Ciara but the Captain kept us all well informed and did a great job of getting us back to Dublin with minimal discomfort despite fairly stormy seas.

    Yet another alright boat if you're not hungry.
    • After check in, I wasn't able to find any bit of lawn for my dog, the food selection at the terminal was very limited and expensive. On the boat, I was quite happy with the comfort and the staff. The food could have been worse, but it was quite bland and expensive and the coffee from the canteen was absolutely pathethic.
