  • Foot passengers cannot board Irish Ferries; this is only possible through P&O Ferries.

The vessels

If you sail with Irish Ferries between Calais and Dover, you will do so on the Isle of Innisfree, the Isle of Inishmore, or the Isle of Inisheer. All of these vessels offer various modern spaces for passengers, including seating areas, a shop, a bar, a reception area, a children’s play area, and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal.

The onboard shop is duty-free, and from the deck, you can enjoy panoramic views of the sea and the landscape around you. Even though the crossing is only an hour and a half, you won’t get bored onboard. Another significant advantage is that Irish Ferries has recently renovated these ships, and you can see the improvements inside.
