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.

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.

    • We enjoyed the journey. Staff were nice. Food was good. Water for tea was cold. Could do with another pillow or better quality one.

    My comments
    • As an infrequent ferry user, we found this crossing very good, apart from the very rough seas which is beyond anybody's control. Cabins though small, were good.

    Almost a disaster...
    • The company decided to change Roscoff to Brest and I did not receive any information about this change. Fortunatly I asked the ticket agent if the route had any delay and in this moment she said the route had been changed of Port. I had to drive at the last minute from Roscoff to Brest and arrive on time.

    • The ship was excellent as long as we were on our feet or in public areas, BUT as soon as we lay on the bunk, there was a constant vibration, not just a noise, and not the sea motion. The rooms need to be rehung somehow. How about hammocks?

    • Trip was ok. Leaving at 9 pm and arriving in the morning in Cork. We just wanted to get from France to Ireland and this boat trip did the trick. The cabin was ok in size and clean.
