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.
In Ireland, Rosslare is known as the "Sunny South-East". Every year it receives 300 hours more sunshine than anywhere else in Ireland, making Rosslare into a top tourist destination.
Furthermore, the sandy beach in Rosslare is a Blue Flag beach and that attracts families, swimmers and surfers alike. If you like playing golf, then near Rosslare, there are many golf courses including the New Ross Golf Club, a fine 18 hole parkland course, which is well worth a few hours play. In the town centre there are good hotels, restaurants and bars.
It is also worth exploring Rosslare's beautiful countryside with all the parks, fascinating villages and amazing views, which are hard to forget.
There are many places and villages to visit around Rosslare, like the Yola Farmstead Folk Park; Kilmore Quay (picturesque fishing village); Ballinskar, a village in which Spielberg shot some battle scenes for the film 'Saving Private Ryan'; and The Irish National Heritage Park where you will find audio-visual guided or self guided walks, which illustrate history from the Stone Age up to the early Norman Period.
29 May 2016Not our choice, but very pleased!
We were originally booked to travel with Brittany Ferries to Cork, but a service cancellation put us on the Stena ferry to Rosslare. All credit to both companies - the transfer was smooth, and check-in was easy. The sailing was on time, the cabin was comfortable, and the facilities onboard comprehensive, so apart from arriving in Ireland 250 Km from where we wanted to be, which we could do nothing about but could live with, we were pleased with the crossing.

11 Sep 2010Ooops not a good experience
Restaurants hugely over-priced and food poor. Staff looked glum and were curt and unfriendly. Cost was within Euro 20 of the Brittany Ferries crossing for similar vehicle and cabins but much better experience. Oops Irish Ferries!

12 Jul 2010Thanks for the clown
The clown who did the magic show was excellent - he really made the difference to the journey. The Clown and Magic show started around 8.30pm for an hour in the main lounge and it was fantastic for kids. Would definitely travel this route again!
