    Pembroke to Rosslare with caravan
    • Very pleased with the experience. Much less trouble than travelling the Dover-Calais route to France which we have done for many years. The dock side staff at both Pembroke and Rosslare were friendly and helpful. The catering staff on the Dover-Calais ferries could learn a thing or two from the Irish Ferries restaurants.

    Round Trip Crossing Holyhead-Dublin-Holyhead
    • Very efficient for getting on and off. A bit expensive, I do not think I would do it this way again because of the cost.

    Great boat
    • The lady who owns the cafe at Pembroke made our trip worth while, she sat and chatted and made us feel welcome, the restaurant guys from Lithuania are great guys, always there to help you, the supervisor of the restaurant on the boat, couldn't do enough to make our trip worth while.all in all a very pleasant experience.
