If your planning on taking the ferry to Rosslare, then you have two options to choose from. You can either travel with Stena Line from Fishguard to Rosslare or with Irish Ferries from Pembroke to Rosslare.
With Stena Line and Irish Ferries offering a very similar service on ferries to Rosslare at an identical price, you may find it hard to choose between the two. Both offer 2 sailings per day from the UK to Rosslare and they even leave at pretty much the same time. The only difference on paper is the sailing time with Stena Lines Fishguard to Rosslare route 30 minutes shorter.
Both the ports of Pembroke and Fishguard are in Pembrokeshire and just 25 miles apart, so unless you live really close to one of these ports there is’nt really much advantage from one or the other, for example if you were travelling from Birmingham you would only save 15 minutes from sailing from Pembroke over Fishguard.
Whatever your reason for sailing to Rosslare, whether it be the start of a great family holiday in Ireland or even if you are just commuting home, both Irish Ferries and Stena Line offer you a great on-board experience with restaurants, cafes, shops and even entertainment for the kids.
Situated in County Wexford, Rosslare is a lovely pleasant seaside resort which boasts a most attractive Blue Flag beach, journey further down the coast and you will find more post card beaches. The ferry terminal at Rosslare Harbour is Ireland’s second largest passenger port.
