    Dont know how you always seem to get reasonable prices Smudger, last time i enquired it was nearly that much one way and in pounds not Euros.

    Smudger it does sound like a good result. From what I remember ,the online quotes I was getting for a 3500k under 7 metre MH were way above your quote .

    The UK mainland /Ireland ferries seem to rank among the most expensive ferry routes on the planet . No competition , no subsidies , greed ?

    I think Smudger either owns the ferry or gets frequent traveller discount!!!!!!

    Thats a very good deal, we went last year in the car with four passengers and paid over£400 including using £90 of Tesco discount. We did go late July though.

    last nite when i looked on there web site , i was quoted nearly €500.00 eurines,just to get an idea, (i never book on line anyway)
    bear in mind i,m traveling on my own , so no extra passengers to pay for. .first thing yer doo is book as disabled traveler if yoo hold a blue badge that is...and secondly dont book on the net, as you pay internet price :Sad:, phone them and ask them whats yr cheapest fare. they want to sell yoo a ticket so they will doo the best they can to help yoo :BigGrin:

    hi dave ....yes it is expensive in the summer months...but if yoo go between now and april, it is there hungry months ie, big ships and loads of room,and ireland is as beautiful in the winter as well in the summer only downside in winter is there are lots of sites closed, but there is plenty of room to wildcamp, and we have loads of pub stop overs,:Smile:
