Cheap Ferries from Roscoff to Rosslare

Opened in 1973, the deep-water port in Roscoff was built to boost the local economy and regenerate trade links between Brittany and Ireland and southwest England. The small ferry port at Roscoff provides a charming introduction to Brittany, and offers an easy access to the rest of France. It is a basic facility, offering hot and cold refreshments at vending machines and a small store.

Visitors landing at the ferry port can tarry a while in Roscoff, to enjoy the excellent fishing and seafood restaurants here. Tourists will also find beautiful beaches along its glorious coastline, and must not miss a trip to Laber beach, only a kilometer away.

Ferries from Roscoff ply to Plymouth in south England and to Cork in Ireland. Besides increasing trade between the countries, they also provide a boost to tourism.

The company now boasts the most modern fleet in all of Europe and ferries almost two million passengers in and out or Ireland annually, on the four routes it operates.
