Ok so I aim to go and pick some one up from ireland with his things to help him move to the UK..


However as far as I can see the ferry prices are hair raising! :shock:


Am I just not looking well enough or is this always the case and I should just wait on this side for him with all his suitcases :lol:

In my very limited experience ferry prices ARE expensive!


I'd wait for him this side, but suppose it depends on how much stuff he's got!! :lol:


Will have an ask of some Irish people on another forum for you :)

a lot of it depends on where you are sailing too as well


my mam used to over a lot to see her friend and it was cheaper to drive to stranraer and get the ferry :shock:

I don't mind which port to port it is..


He's in Waterford and I'd be taking car over and back to pack all his things in..!


Just not sure it's worth £240 :eek2:

Sorry but £240 is not bad at all. We are £338 for a car and three in July, Troon to Larne leaving on a Saturday and returning on a Monday, middle of the day sailings. Me and my bik,e Stranraer to Belfast leaving Monday returning Friday was £90.


The only way to save is get a night sailing in October on a Tuesday with all the truckers!

Always been dear Jin, when I used to go over every year in a van with the windsurfing kit it was always near £300 for the van and 2 or 3 passengers. Not been for a couple of years now so not sure how they price it. I`d meet him over here personally, £240 is a lot of dosh

Yeah it seams like the plan now is to find some where to leave the car at Fishgaurd..


Go over to his to spend a couple of days, help him get the stuff on the ferry and off again then bundle all into the car and go from there!

There is a carpark near the rail head at Fishguard docks, you need to ignore the Ferry enterance and follow the signage for the station, you will see the parking on your left but have to drive past to reach enterance.

Don't know what if any the charges are, I paid nowt when I used it. It was cheaper to hire a car in Ireland for the day and go as foot passanger.
