The new timetable on Stena Line’s Fishguard-Rosslare route was introduced at the end of May 2017 and is intended to give customers the chance to avail of three day sailings and one extended overnight crossing.

Having carried out customer research and feedback, the ferry company reviewed the previous schedule and has introduced a more customer friendly timetable which now comprises of three three-hour 15 minutes daytime crossings making Stena Line’s Fishguard-Rosslare route the shortest and fastest crossing between Ireland and South Wales.

Ian Davies, Stena Line’s Trade Director, Irish Sea South commented: “We recently carried out a substantial investment in the Stena Europe vessel and to ensure we make the most of this service for our customers, we carried out extensive research with them to find out how we can provide an even more enjoyable travel experience.

“After analysing the results, we made the decision to amend the timetable on our Fishguard – Rosslare route and are now delighted to offer our customers three day sailings and an extended overnight crossing.  This not only creates new opportunities which were not previously available on the market for our travel and freight customers, but also reduces the crossing times on some of our sailings by 15 minutes.”
