I’ve taken the short Dublin to Holyhead crossing twice because my assistance dog can’t be kept in a kennel. Despite what the site says, when I asked to check on her while crossing I was told a dry “no”, where instead it should be possible....More

A very easy crossing from Holyhead - Dublin, friendly service and reasonably priced, although arrive in Dublin anytime but rush hour. 4.5miles in 1 hour didn't impress me. Ferry clean and the crew were excellent.
