    Perfect crossing!
    • This was our first crossing by this route. We have tried every other port-destination combination and this is our new favourite. Fast, efficient, calm with the added bonus of the smoothest crossing ever, what is not to like? Very fast links to the road west to Donegal were superb. We will consider this route the next time we travel to Ireland.
