  • "Excellent Service with Irish Ferries"

    I recently sailed from Cherbourg to Rosslare with Irish Ferries on the Oscar Wilde. I had done a gruelling 12 hour drive from Germany that day and arrived exhausted and hungry at the port. After boarding I was greeted by 2 members of staff at the entrance to the lift and exit from the lift guiding passengers to their accommodation. My cabin was very good and a welcome hot shower was just what I needed. My cabin was roomy enough for one person with a comfortable bed and couch. Then down fr a very pleasant dinner with wine which was very reasonably priced. More friendly staff faces made me feel very welcome on board which particularly impressed me as I was a travelling alone. The next morning the breakfast buffet was excellent the journey to Rosslare passed very smoothly. I would definitely recommend travelling with Irish Ferries and will recommend their friendliness and good value to all my family and friends.

  • "Smooth sailing, not so smooth seating"

    Last time I sailed on the Oscar Wilde I had an obligatory, over-priced seat in a communal area full of rigidly uncomfortable airline-type seating, abandoned by everyone when a 12-hour storm made it total torture. This time I had a cabin and the sea was calm, so everything was fine (just bring your own pillow and a good book, 20 hours is a lonnnng trip). Friendly staff, decent meal, big shop, no problem. But I did re-visit the seating area and it's still exactly the same - bolt upright, horrible, you couldn't comfortably sit in one of those chairs for one hour never mind twenty. Which is a pity as cabins work out expensive for single travellers. Overall, a happy experience this time, but the wretched seating area needs a major comfort overhaul. The seating on the (much shorter, 4 hour) Newhaven-Dieppe ferry trip is way better.

  • "Easy Cruising"

    From Rosslare to Cherbourg on The "Oscar Wilde" ferry was an easy cruise and everything worked , as it should. Fast check-in. Good and clean equipment to tie down my motorcycle.. Clean and sufficiently large standard cabins. Competent catering -with a wide variety of choice.. All staff appeared very competent -though some appeared less enthusiastic than others about "Customer Service" Overall. this is a very well managed service.

  • "Overnight travel from Cherburg to Rosslare "

    All services went well, smooth sailing, great food and comfortable accommodation, only down side comment would be the disembarkation seemed very long winded taking over 30 minutes after first car off. Would certainly travel with Irish Ferries again.

    The journey was very pleasant. The only unpleasant thing was it took over 45minutes to get off the ferry. We all stuck in the car on the car deck without any announcement for 45 minutes.

  • "A Lovely Time"

    We had the 4 star deluxe cabin and found it to be just wonderful. There was a fresh bowl of fruit, lovely refreshments, and comfortable beds. We were rocked to sleep by the Atlantic ocean ,then woke up completely refreshed in Ireland. I found some very good deals on board the shop (duty free).The food at the Steak House was delicious, and finally the staff were customer-service orientated. They were all friendly, helpful and efficient.It is defiantly a trip that I would recommend.

  • "feedback of our experience on the Oscar Wilde"

    We had a return trip Rosslare-Cherbourg on the Oscar Wilde. This was our first familiy trip by ferry and did not know what to expect. I have to say we were plesantly suprised. The salings were very calm on both trips, cabins were v clean and comfortable. The food in the main resturant was good and staff were very pleasant. We also went to the cinema on our return journey which was also very enjoyable especially for the kids. We had initially thought the kids may have got bored on ferry journey but there was plenty to keep them entertained All in all a great experience.

  • "Pleasant hassle free journey"

    Arrived in Rosslare to find that it was so easy to get booked on and boarded. I was travelling on a motorcycle but only complained was that they had all motorcycles crammed in together so meant tying the bike steady was not easy. The dock staff just wanted to get you in and out of way. The rest of the journey was fantastic,the food ,the bar and cabin all clean. I would take this trip again but would like more space if on the bike.
