I was looking for a quick route to reach the sun. I was getting so tired and dreary with the dull weather and cold rain. I recall travelling by ferry from Dublin to Holyhead in Wales. Holyhead is a nice small town, but it personifies inactivity with little to do in the town itself. And being on the coast it does get hit with some bad weather sometimes.
Take a Shortcut to France
I was surprised to find that that both Stenaline & Irish ferries both offer regular ferry trips from Rosslare in Ireland to Cherbourg in France. If bringing a car, you can get prices from €99 one way.
I was on my own and travelling with just a backpack. The one way ticket was €50 and the journey lasted around 19 hours!
I actually didn’t realise it was that long because once aboard the ship there was plenty to do. I spent alot of time wondering around, watching TV, drinking a guinness, eating in the restaurant and sleeping.
If your looking for some special offers or thinking about making a trip from Ireland to France or the other way around, check out the Stenaline or Irish Ferries website. Prices vary but at around €100 for a return trip to France I think it’s well worth it if you have the chance!
