Ferry routes to Ireland - Irish Sea ferries

With the industrial disputes in France causing some disruption and with an uncertain outcome, why not turn your attention westwards towards Ireland for your next driving trip? You'll find spectacular scenery, excellent food and of course Guinness or Murphy's to wash it down. The people are really friendly and nobody knows how to turn a quick pint into an all night party better than the Irish!

Traffic is rarely a problem in Ireland, whether in the Republic or Northern Ireland. Dublin and Belfast can be busy, but away from there and the open road beckons. It's hard to single out anywhere for special recommendation, as the whole country has something to offer. There's the wild west coast of Galway, the Dingle Peninsula and Donegal; the softer lushness of the south around Cork and Waterford; the prettiness of Wexford; the glorious coastline of Antrim and Down in Northern Ireland.

Dublin is world famous for its culture and lively nightlife, although these days Belfast runs a close second. Classy Cork and vibrant Galway both repay a visit.

Drive-Alive now offers 8 different ways to get to the Republic and Northern Ireland by ferry with routes from Stranraer to Belfast, Fleetwood to Larne, Liverpool to Belfast and Dublin, Holyhead to Dublin and Dun Laoghaire, Pembroke and Fishguard to Rosslare.
