Irish Ferries to introduce third ship on Holyhead route
Irish Ferries is to introduce a third ship on its Dublin – Holyhead route from December 2013, increasing capacity and frequency on this key route between Ireland and Wales.
Irish Ferries has chartered the Epsilon (built in 2011) to supplement its existing Ireland to Britain services. The ship will provide two additional departures per day in each direction that will result in an increase in the company’s schedule to a maximum of 12 sailings between Dublin and Holyhead each day.
The recently built vessel will provide significant vehicle capacity along with modern facilities on board, including cabins, bar/cafeteria and self-service restaurant.
Currently, the ferry company operates eight sailings per day on the key Irish Sea route using its flagship Ulysses and the high-speed craft Jonathan Swift.
