I'm from Wexford and used the Rosslare one, however, Brittany Ferries from Cork is worth the extra shlep. Far nicer and less likely to be intimidated by gangs of non ticket holding individuals at roscoff when you disembark.

I'd much rather go with Stena over Irish Ferries. I won't miss them.

As a Dub who lives in Belfast i'm happy bout the extra sailing from Dublin, I didn't mind the spin to Rosslare but sometimes with traffic and stuff it was a bit of a cluster-fuck down there.

I went via Holyhead through England to France in June, what a fucking nightmare. M6 with miles and miles of road works and reduced speed limits and them only working on a stretch of 100 metres, nothing else happening.

Then the M25 standstill for 15+ miles, took an hour to filter through with all the retards getting out of their cars to walk around. Then got to the front and the road closed for no reason, 3 road workers standing around laughing, picking their holes.

Then got to the Chunnel and its fucking delayed 2 hours. Shit country.

The trip back via Cherbourg was great, 5 beers and a sleeping tablet and I was as fresh as a daisy getting off the boat. The fucking noise was something else though in the cabin we got, sounded like we were in the engine room... hence the sleeping tablet.

At least the staff on Irish Ferries strap your bike down with padded straps and put wheel chocks under the rear wheel for you too.
Unlike StenaLine.

'A road trip' is what I had when I get out of the Eurotunnel and on my way to the Alps. Riding shit motorways in England is no fun.

The Eurotunnel is grand but not a big fan of a 2 hour delay on a day with 10 hours riding planned.

Sure it's all part if the coarse.

Part of the journey and holiday.
