  • "Very Smooth"

    Very smooth. No issues all very organised food was good if limited in choice. Recommend the lounges as a place of quiet and somewhere to unwind. Worth the extra.

Holyhead Travel Guide

Located on Holy Island, which at one point was connected to Anglesey via the Four Mile Bridge, the town of Holyhead is the largest town and port in Anglesey, Wales. A local philanthropist in the mid-19th century funded the building of a causeway, "The Cobb", which to this day carries the main road and railway to and from Holyhead.

There are many places in the town centre to eat with all the usual shops and facilities you would expect to find in a town of its size. There is also a cinema and theatre. Holyhead is often used as an overnight stop to or from the port and as a result there are many different places to stay that will suit all budgets. Around Holyhead, there are excellent fishing, golfing and sailing facilities. Couple this with the wonderful scenery, walks and beaches and you can easily lose yourself and relax for a few days.

The Port of Holyhead is a bustling ferry port which operates services to Dublin and Dun Laoghaire in Ireland. The port is also the main gateway for land transport from northern and central England and Wales to Ireland.

Dublin Travel Guide

Dublin is the capital of Ireland and is located in the province of Leinster on the north east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. As Ireland's capital city, it is a major tourist destination and attracts millions of visitors each year. Popular attractions in the city, whose history dates to Viking times, is Dublin Castle, which was founded in 1204, just after the Norman invasion. Other popular attractions include the Mansion House, Anna Livia Monument, Molly Malone statue, Christ Church Cathedral, St Patrick's Cathedral, The Custom House and Saint Francis Xavier Church on Upper Gardiner Street.

Dublin's port is located on both banks of the River Liffey. On the north bank, the main port lies at the end of East Wall and North Wall, from Alexander Quay. The element of the port on the south side of the river is much smaller and lies at the beginning of the Pigeon House peninsula. Ferry services from the port depart to Holyhead in Wales, Liverpool in England, and Douglas on the Isle of Man.
