Dublin Ferry Port

About The Port

Dublin ferry port is one of the best ways to access England, Wales, Isle of Man and France. Depending on the season, there are up to 11 ferry crossings which include crossings to Liverpool, Holyhead, Douglas and Cherbourg.

The modern history of the port began in the 1700s with various banks, lighthouses and structures being added during the course of the century. By 1800, Dublin port was the third largest port city in Europe. The port continued to grow and since the 1950s, container traffic has dominated the trade scene into and out of the Irish capital. It now also has a thriving ferry industry, providing easy sea-based transport to and from Ireland.

The route durations vary from 2 hours 15 minutes to Holyhead all of the way to 18 hours on the Cherbourg service. The routes are managed by a mixture of P&O Ferries, Irish Ferries, Stena Line and Isle of Man Steam Packet.

There are 3 terminals at Dublin ferry port. Terminal 1 is for Irish Ferries and Steam Packet, Terminal 2 is for Stena Line, Terminal 3 is for P&O Ferries.
