Traveling from Dublin to Holyhead?
I’ve been traveling over and back to Wales and the UK for over 18 years for at least 6 times a year. If I’m meeting friends I’d usually be a foot passenger and if I need to travel for meetings I’d take a vehicle.
It’s a really handy way to travel, especially if you have kids.
I’d consider myself somewhat of an expert at this stage. I know the best places to go on most of the vessels if you want comfort. What food tastes the best when you’re crossing the Irish sea and where you can get some peace and quiet if it’s really busy.
Most of the time I’d use Irish Ferries but I equally love Stena Line. Both sets of staff are truly amazing at customer service and have passengers at the forefront of everything they do.
A handy 3 hours and 15 minutes aboard the Stena Adventurer and you’ve reached your Holyhead destination. I spend most of my time reading the newspaper in the Stena Barista Cafe. The coffee and chocolate muffins are actually unreal!!!
How Long Does it Take to Get from Dublin to Holyhead?
