  1. We are planning a holiday in Ireland and England. We plan on flying into Dublin and sightseeing 4 people of us with a hire car. Wondering is it possible to drop off a hire car near the ferry terminal at rosslare all and then pick up another hire car at Pembroke? as we want to sight see around the Cornwell coast before we go on a cruise line. What’s the best option do u think?
    Keep the hire car that we hire in Dublin and drop off in England somewhere ?
    Can another hire car England?
    Hire car in Ireland only
    Then another in England?
    Could you please assist and point me in the right direction

    1. Hi Dianne.

      Sounds like a wonderful holiday you are planning. Unfortunately we would only be able to give general information on this one. As ultimately it will come down to your choice of car and how much money you want to spend. Yes you can hire a car in Dublin, leave it in Rosslare, picking another one up in Pembroke (Both ports have hire car rentals at there docks). You can also hire a car in Dublin, take it on the ferry with you and use it on your onward journey throughout England. Rental car companies will be able to take you through both options giving you prices for each, allowing you to make a more informed decision. I am sorry we cannot be of more help on this one.

  2. Could you please tell me if I need a dog passport to go to Ireland. I don’t want to get to the ferry then have them tell me that I do?
    Regards

  3. I am from overseas. Planning to rent a car from London. I have not decided on the model of the car yet. Please advise me how to proceed with the online booking. ( You require detail of the car data)

    1. Hi Ismail

      You are able to book by selecting “TBA” for the make, model and registration number of your vehicle, then change the details once you have them. I hope this helps.

    1. Hi Dougie

      Yes you can take your caravan with you. Select “Car” as your mode of transport. Click the small box underneath to indicate you wish to take a “Caravan / Trailer”. On the next page it will promote you to “Select Trailer Size”. Choose the appropriate height of your caravan from the drop down menu. I hope this helps.

  4. Hi im thinking of buying a car Ireland so what would the price be to travel to rosslare on foot and to bring a car back over .. ?thanks

    1. Hi Chris

      This will depend on when you want to travel and the type of car you wish to purchase. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are often the cheapest days for travel (also travelling out with school holidays helps). Things that can affect the price with regards to the car, include: roof racks, trailers etc. Unfortunately without more accurate information we are unable to give a price. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

  5. Hi there,
    We want to travel to Limmerick thinking of taking the car how far is it from Rosslare and what is the traveling time for the crossing
    Kind regards Cath

    1. Hi Cath

      From Rosslare to Limmerick it is approximately a 3 hours drive via the N25 and N24. The sailing time from Pembroke to Rosslare is approximately 4 hours. I hope this helps.

    1. Hi Betty

      Of course you can! Al dogs travelling onboard need to be pre-booked on. Just add them into you booking. I hope this helps.

  6. If I book one way – ie pembroke to rosslare and leave the return date open (probably 2 and a half to 3 weeks later) do I pay more this way? And might it be difficult to get a booking nearer the time – although my dates can be flexible. Just one person, one car.

    1. Hi Yvonne

      We would always recommend booking your dates as early as possible to get the best price. Leaving your return journey booking till the last minute may mean there is limited availability on the ferry. I hope this helps.

  7. do the ferries cross from rosslare to pembroke on a daily basis and how much does it cost for a foot passenger kind regards paul kelly

    1. You will need to check with the ferry company you choose to travel with on their exact policy. But in general British or Irish citizens travelling on the Irish Sea routes do not need a passport to travel to Britain or Ireland but are advised to take a form of identity. A driving licence, citizenship card or utility bill will usually suffice. A birth certificate will usually provide adequate proof of identity for your children.

  8. My daughter, born in UK would like to take her 3 children to Ireland for a few days. She has a passport, the children, who have their Father’s surname, do not have passports, do they need them?

  9. Yes you can take your dog on the ferry. There are rules for pet travel that must be followed and your dog will have to stay in your vehicle or the on-board kennels. There is currently no charge for dogs on routes from UK to Ireland.

    1. can we visit our dog in the car when travelling.

      How much does it cost to have a cabin and can our little dog stay with us.

      1. Yes you are usually allowed to check on your dog. Your dog is not allowed on any passenger deck, they must be booked into the onboard kennals or stay in your car.

  10. Can you please give me the cost of a 52 seater coach to travel from Pembroke to Rosslare and return. Does it become cheaper with more coaches?

    Thanks,

    Duncan Harding
