    We are planning a ferry crossing to Ireland from the UK in late August. What is the cheapest ferry / route.

    The only cheap route to Ireland is to cash in Tesco vouchers! A car and 3 passengers in july £350 without vouchers. We always fly over and rent a car in UK it works out cheaper!
    They have a captive audience so can make a killing. Have you looked at going Liverpool-Dublin? might be cheaper different ferry company. My uncle ussed it once and got reduced rate asa he worked on the railway. It was, dont know about now, owned by the steamboat setup hence the rail connection.

    I had a look at this some time ago - from what I remember it's very cheap ( about £120 per person ) if you go really late at night from Pembroke. No trouble in the MH, we will just park up, sleep for a while, then get up and go on the ferry.
    It's free for the dog - you can either leave him in the vehicle or book a kennel at no charge.

    For an example I just looked up P&O 2 weeks 13 Aug-28 Aug Liverpool - Dublin sailing 9.30 am
    2 Adults
    2 children
    campervan midsize and height

    £278.00
    This is a super economy fare so might be limited offer

    Stena Line same as above £421 on fast ferry sailing midday

    As said in previos posts £1 tesco voucher gets you £4 off the stena line fare.

    Hope this is of some help

    If you have air miles you can use for Irish ferries I got a quote for Pembroke/ Rosslare in June 4500 miles + £14.

    Irish sea is the most expensive sea crossing in Europe, apparently.

    It's either to keep us Irish in, or keep everyone else out. :Wink:
