Ireland by Ferry

An easy way to hop over to Ireland from the United Kingdom is traveling by ferry. If you are starting from mainland Europe there are two different routes to Ireland. One route brings you from France directly to Ireland, the other one takes you from the continent (Holland or France) to the United Kingdom and from there further to Ireland (the so-called landbridge ferry). Below you find an overview of all the ferry routes to Ireland.

To travel to Ireland by ferry with your own car might take some time depending from where you start, but it might be cheaper than the combination of booking a flight and renting a car.
Tip: If you really want to save money you should – especially during holiday season – book the ferry in advance.
