If the idea of going at your own pace on holiday sounds appealing, then a self-drive getaway can be the perfect method of travel.  

Wave goodbye to airport queues or clock-watching for your taxi to the train station as you embrace the freedom of being in control of your journey from start to finish.

Taking advantage of our favourable ferry crossing rates means you can more easily keep track of what you are spending, as these can be booked alongside your accommodation package on a per family or group basis.

If you’re travelling further south then the benefit of a self-drive holiday means that you can stop off whenever and wherever you like as you take your family and friends through some of Europe’s most eye-catching landscapes.


Breaking up the drive can be a great way to keep the kids occupied, with modern ferries able to combine the traditional exhilaration of ferry travel with restaurants, shopping, entertainment and children’s activities.


A floating play and entertainment space will keep children and teens occupied for the duration. 

Games rooms, play areas, small toys and Wi-Fi internet access are available on all cruise ships, while the adults can grab a drink and unwind in the restaurant/bar area.



When booking a ferry crossing, accommodation will be required, offering the perfect place to relax or store any excess luggage. 

There are a range of cabins to choose from, including sea-view options for watching the waves as the sun comes up. 




We offer a choice of crossings from Ireland to Northern France and Spain with Irish Ferries, Stena Line and Brittany Ferries.
We’ve put together a list of popular routes and timings on our ferry routes and timetables page to help you plan the journey.
