Ferry to Holyhead from Dublin

by dynamowoman

Is there a ferry from Dublin to Holyhead in Wales that includes passengers only?

Re: Ferry to Holyhead from Dublin

by johngayton

If you mean one that doesn't carry trucks you'll probably find the answer is no. However the slower boats, the so-called cruise crossings, will have less commercial traffic than the faster boats (for obvious reasons). Two of Irish Ferries daily sailings are the slower ones.www.irishferries.com

All ferries carry foot passengers and cars/lorries etc.

There is no foot passenger-only ferry.

Passengers travel separately from their vehicles, of course. Vehicles in the hold, passengers on the upper decks.

You can check carriers, times and fares (and make a booking, if you choose) here:

Bejees, but there is talk of a Dublin-Holyhead footbridge, funded by the EU. But mayb's be only pub talk LOL ;)

Re: Ferry to Holyhead from Dublin

by leics

Bit of a long walk though......and a wild and windy one on many occasions. Surely EU health & safety regs won't allow it?

Re: Ferry to Holyhead from Dublin

by johngayton

Ach, to be sure it won't be like yer English "Millenium Bridge" - it'll be built by proper navvies, and who doesn't mind a nice sea walk? See you in Krakow J ;)

Travel Tips for Dublin

Gray Line Tours

by Ines28

This is a tip if you book a tour with Gray Line, we booked the Wicklow Mountains, Valleys & Lakes Tour, but there is also the Wicklow Tour. If you book this tour at the tourist information at Suffolk street, you will probably want to depart at College Green. The Wicklow Mountains Tour starts at the bus stop 613, you leave the pub on the picture on your right side, go down the short street and turn right. If you are going on the Wickow Tour, you have to walk on and turn right, here is another bus stop. We got several different information regarding the place and time so were quite insecure, but the Wicklow Mountains Tour leaves definitely outside Ulster Bank, stop 613 at 10.30 am on Sundays only.

Tourism in...


Tourism in Eire is a rather new event since about 10 years); I heard that from a dubliner...
The city center of Dublin (Baile Atha Cliath) is crowdy and animated night & day.Lots of things to see and do like Temple bar district touristic), O'Conell Street, banks of the Liffey River, St. Patrick Cathedral, Trinity College,Grafton street, St Stephen's Green park and shoping center...
Lost in Dublin ? any information to get ?
Ask any dubliner, they'll friendly do everything to help you...
Notice that Dublin is a safe city.
Le tourisme en Irlande est plutot chose nouvelle (depuis une dizaine d'années environ), je tiens celà d'un dublinois.
Le centre-ville de Dublin (Baile Atha Cliath) est animé jour et nuit.
Un tas de choses à voir dans cette charmante ville, ainsi, Temple bar (touristique), O' Conell Street, les rives du fleuve Liffey, la cathédrale St. Patrick, Trinity College, Grafton street, le parc et le centre commercial St Stephen's Green etc ...
Si vous êtes perdus dans la ville ou si vous avez besoin d'un renseignement, les dublinois feront tout pour vous aider, de façon très amicale.
En général, Dublin est une ville sûre. ENGLISH VERSION :

The first time I was there, it was during the HALLOWEEN period in 2000. The first night, a few hours after landing, I went to Temple bar district.

The streets and pubs were full of people gathered here and there, as some others were singing, dancing and laughing, disguised in funny clothes, all over the place ... what a crazy night.
Much Guiness beer flowed this night.
Pretty good athmosphere ... A must live !

J'ai été à Dublin la première fois pendant la période d'HALLOWEEN.(très vieille tradition irlandaise), en octobre 2000 pour être plus precis.

Peu après mon arrivée, je me suis rendu dans le centre-ville, dans le quartier de temple bar.
Dans les rues, il y avait une foule incroyable, certains, en groupe, dançaient, chantaient et riaient alors que d'autres assistaient en spectateurs. Génial, une excellente ambiance ...et la Guiness a coulé à flots, une bonne partie de la nuit... Des moments à vivre ...

Films & Books on Dublin/Irish history

by MichaelFalk1969

If you are interested in Irish history, I recommend two films that deal with the time between the Easter Rising 1916 and the following Anglo-Irish struggles: "Michael Collins" with Liam Neeson and Alan Rickmann and "The wind that shakes the barley" from Ken Loach with Cilian Murphy. Both are masterpieces in their own right. You will certainly recognize some film locations in Dublin.

Edward Rutherfurd has written some interesting historical fiction - I recommend "Dublin" as the book to get in the mood for a Dublin visit.

Alcohol In Ireland

by IrishFem

The legal age to buy alcohol in Ireland is 18. Some clubs and pubs will serve you only if your over 23. Most pubs with bouncers will look for some form of identify... wish l had that problem. The bouncers can be very agressive, when they say no they mean no and no amount of chat will change their minds. My advice is to walk away ..muttering unreconisable words in whatever language takes your fancy, because lets face it, they are not on the door for their intelligence... so the chances of understanding what you say to them are slim. Don't say Pogue mi thon.. that means kiss my arse....and just about every tourist uses that phase. But don't let me put you off, there are some really great pubs and clubs in Dublin which can be a very enjoyable experience especially if your looking for Traditional Irish Music venues, and some really old fashioned pubs where they pull a great pint of Guinness. See my pub page for more information.

visit the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin.
Located in the suburbs north of Dublin these gardens are a joy to explore.The fascinating Victorian glasshouses display exotic plants palms, ferns, succulents, tropical water plants, as well as plants native to Ireland.
