Rosslare Fishguard Ferry reviews

  • "good experience but"

    a very positive voyage in terms of comfort. The Stena lounge had reclining seats which were very good (compared to other ships where these do not exist. The only down side was that there appeared to be little effective control over entry to the stena lounge and the flexibility was abused by a number of passengers. Good port experience at both ends.

    A pleasant crossing from Rosslare to Fishguard on the 9 o'clock ferry. The loading and offloading of vehicles was very smooth. We had an excellent breakfast on board served by friendly staff.

Rosslare Guide

The Irish village of Rosslare, or Rosslare Strand to give it is full name, is a coastal resort and port located in County Wexford, Ireland. Separating Wexford Harbour from the North Sea is a long sandspit which stretches north from Rosslare which until the 1920's stretched for many more miles north. At one point the spit almost reached Raven Point, giving Wexford Harbour and very narrow mouth. However, a storm breached the spit during the winter of 1924-25 and was thereafter gradually washed away. Located at the end of the spit was Rosslare Fort which is now abandoned. All that remains is a small island visible at low tide.

The village is supposed to be the sunniest in Ireland and has been a popular tourist resort for at least the last 100 years. The town's beach has been awarded a Blue Flag and therefore attracts many bathers and families.

The town's modern port has good passenger facilities and provides ferry services to Pembroke, with a crossing time of around 4 hours, Fishguard, 3 hours and 30 minutes and Cherbourg and Roscoff in France. Passenger facilities include a restaurant, a bar, children's play area and a waiting area.

Fishguard Guide

The small market town of Fishguard is located in north Pembrokeshire, Wales. The town overlooks Fishguard Bay and is the main commercial and shopping centre for the region. The town has become increasingly popular with tourists as Fishguard is ideally located to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the Coast Path, the Gwaun Valley and the many other towns and villages along the coast and inland towards the Preseli Hills. The Lower Town had a small pilchard and herring fishing fleet and played an important role in the importation of limestone and coal and for the exportation of woollen products and food.

From the town's port, which is located some 1.5 km from Fishguard at Goodwick, there are ferry services to Rosslare in Ireland with 4 arrivals and 4 departures each day. Passenger facilities in the ferry terminal include a cafe, a bar and a number of vending machines.
