Qype: Stena Line Uk in Goodwick

GoodwickTransportationPublic TransportFerry Terminals

For a crossing to Ireland from our part of the country, there’s two options. We could take the overnight ferry from Swansea to Cork, or the less expensive, shorter trip from Fishguard to Rosslare. Really, it’s swings and roundabouts, for any savings we’d have made on the shorter route would be eaten by the extra miles we’d have to drive.

But, we chose the Fishguard route anyway, for that way, we’d see more of the country.

We arrived in Fishguard in plenty of time for the ferry; in fact, we only had to wait 20 minutes to check in. And, when we had checked in, there was a considerable wait before we could load.

But, here was a cafe, with free wifi, where I had a very nice beef pasty for lunch. Normally, I’d have said there was too much pastry in it, but it was so moist and slightly sweet, it wasn’t a problem,

The crossing itself was rather lively. The ship had to deal with high winds and rough seas, but we didn’t feel too much discomfort, although moving around the ship was a bit of a problem. Not that there’s much to see, anyway. We found comfortable seats, in which to play with the free wifi and the MP3 player, read and go to sleep

If I had one teeny complaint, it was that the music over the loudspeaker was a little too loud.
