Irish Ferries increases sailing capacity for Christmas

Irish Ferries is increasing its sailing capacity for Christmas on its busy Dublin to Holyhead route by moving its Rosslare to Pembroke ferry 'Isle of Inishmore' into service alongside its fast ferry 'Dublin Swift' and cruise ferry 'Ulysses', the largest ferry on the Irish Sea, writes Trish Whelan.

On Rosslare to Pembroke, their cruise ferry 'Oscar Wilde' will be drafted in to operate the route in addition to its sailings between Ireland and France.

Irish Ferries head of passenger sales Dermot Merrigan said "This is our busiest time of the year and we're preparing for the situation that hit travellers in previous years when bad weather disrupted air travel and sent thousands of passengers in search of alternative means to travel home.
