Mac booked the ferries but I believe it's the 14.10 ferry from Holyhead on Thursday and leave Dublin at 08.45 Monday am.
So that's a lovely 500 mile plus ride on the Thursday with a ferry rest in the last third.

Can you join us on either or both of these?

It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Mac will confirm but I think he got ours at less than 100 return.

Ok I booked with... https://www.irishferries.com/uk-en/to-i ... om-britain

Holyhead 19th outbound 14.10 ---Dublin @17.25

Dublin 23rd return 08.45---Holyhead @10.45

So if the time seem a little strange, heres why...

We have a 5 + hr ride to get to Hollyhead so the 14.10 gives us time to get there without a stupidly early set from home & at the other end it means we wont be getting to Fabios stables too late in the day.

On the return the early time basicaly means we wont be riding home in the eve rush hour at our end...


Oh & the outbound ferry is a slow one, the return ferry is the fast one...


£91.87 with the discount 25% for early booking but + 2.50 booking/admin charge.

There is an upgrade avaliable you can go club class for an extra £20 per journey, gives you prority boarding, a seat, drinks & newspapers...

That's not a bad price at all! Good work and nice to see people are committed! Worth pointing out at this stage NI has even worse weather than the mainland but here's hoping for some sunshine!
