Freight ferries to Ireland

Freight ferries to Ireland are available from both France and the UK. There are four freight ferry destinations in Ireland; from north to south they are Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Rosslare and Cork. Dublin is the capital and economical centre of Dublin; therefore there are more freight routes to Dublin than any other Irish port.

Freight ferries to Dublin originate from both Liverpool and Liverpool Birkenhead. Situated opposite the city of Liverpool, across the River Mersey, Liverpool Birkenhead will be most convenient for UK drivers coming from Wales and the south east. There are twice daily crossings to Dublin from each port; crossings are between 7 hours 30 minutes and nine hours.

Drivers coming from further north might prefer to travel to Dublin from the port of Heysham. Norse Merchant Freight offer twice daily crossings in addition to their Liverpool Birkenhead services. Drivers looking for a shorter crossing should look into freight ferries to Ireland from Holyhead; the crossing time is only one hour 45 minutes.

Freight passengers looking to travel to the south or west of Ireland should think about the Swansea to Cork route, with Swansea Cork Ferries Freight. They offer a daily crossing taking around nine hours. In addition, one of the few freight ferries to Ireland from mainland Europe arrives in Cork. Brittany Ferries Truck Line offer a service from Roscoff in France.

Whichever freight ferry travellers choose, they are sure to have a comfortable journey. Many of the freight ferries to Ireland are modern, with a wide range of facilities.
