Stena Line Fast Ferry rejoins Irish Sea service

The Stena Fast Ferry HSS Stena Express has just relaunched on the Irish Sea after a £2 million refit. As a result she is even faster than previously and completes the crossings from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire in just 1 hour 50 minutes. Dun Laoghaire is just south of Dublin.

The vessel is joined on this crossing during the summer months by the world's largest Fast Ferry, the Stena Explorer and between them they operate three return crossings daily.

The Express even manages to find time to nip down the coast and join the conventional ferry the Stena Europe on the Fishguard Rosslare route during the summer months, adding an additional return crossing to the two offered by the Europe on this popular route.

As well as the crossings operated by the Express and Explorer from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire, Stena Line sail from Holyhead to Dublin port using two conventional ferries, the Nordica and Adventurer, offering four return crossings all year, each crossing taking 3 and a quarter hours.
