Stenaline will take you across the Irish Sea from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire, with their Fastcat ferry. The Fastcat is a large catamaran, capable of travelling at much higher speeds than a conventional ferry. There is significantly less opportunity to get up and walk about than in a traditional ferry, but none the less, the Fastcat is quite spacious and certainly not claustrophobic. The journey time is under two hours and departs four times every day.

You can purchase modest snacks and hot and cold drinks whilst on board. Nice big windows enable you to look outside (although there is no deck). There may not be too much to see other than the sea and waves, but it’s important to focus on things outside of the Fastcat if you’re prone to sea sickness. Having said that, the catamaran ferries are very stable and offer a comfortable, smooth ride. Of course, smoking is prohibited on these vessels.

Dun Laoghaire is only seven miles away from Dublin and is ideally placed to serve the whole of the country. The facilities at this port are good; you will find an information desk, bureau de change, souvenir shop and places to eat. Those who can’t wait to access the internet should be pleased to know that you can find Wi-Fi internet access right at the port terminal.
