About Swansea

Mumbles Head is a rock formation and tourist resort situated off to one side of Swansea. If I were to tell you that it comes from the French word mamelles, meaning 'breasts', you could probably work out why it got this name when you look at the rocks.

You should also take time to sample Welsh Rarebit and Welsh Cakes, both of which will melt in your mouth and leave you craving for more.

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.

    journey from Swansea to Cork
    • overall this was an excellent journey. Very convenient for myself given that I live nearby. I have used it before and this was one of the best journeys I have had. I am very sad that the ferry has been cancelled until next April and indeed I was affected by this with my return journey. I really hope that a way can be found to retain this service in the future. I do not want to have to resort to air travel or to the less convenient services that sail to the east coast of Ireland.

    • Queuing for the ferry at Swansea Port was long and boring. The addition of a coffee/tea lounge would be a benefit.

    Shame about the catering
    • The trip was good, cabin perfectly adequate. The only thing that let it down was the quality of the catering. Over-priced, miserable main courses with cold vegetables. I would travel with this company on this route again - but take my own food
