Reaching Dublin by Ferry
With a large number of passengers, the ferries to Ireland from Wales and England are an extremely popular means of transport. The main routes of these ferries are Holyhead-Dublin, Liverpool-Dublin, and Holyhead-Dun Laogharie.
Stena and Irish ferries to Ireland ply from Wales while Norfolk Line and P&O Ferry offer services from Liverpool. DART is the service provider to the port of Dun Laogharie. It takes 7 hours from Liverpool, while from Holyhead it takes only 2.5 hours. The amount of time taken to reach also depends on which kind of ferries to Ireland one chooses; whether one takes a fast, modern ferry or a slower, more traditional ferry.
The best option for people who are traveling from Britain to Dublin is to purchase a combined rail and ferry ticket. It will cost only up to £30.50 one way, which is a particularly good value for money given that only a ferry ticket alone costs £30 if purchased separately. However it is not mandatory and foot passengers departing to Ireland need not book combined ferry and rail tickets. It is advisable to pre book rail/ferry tickets if you are returning from England.
These combined ferry/rail tickets can be purchased directly from rail stations in Britain or online from https://www.raileasy.co.uk (with £1 booking fee plus £0.75 debit card fee).
