Ferry Epsilon makes her last sailing for Irish Ferries

After almost ten years of service with Irish Ferries, the ferry Epsilon is due to make her last sailing for the company today, 10 November, arriving in Dublin from Cherbourg.

After a refit she will sail for her new owners Unity Lines on routes between Sweden and Poland.

The Visentini-built ship was launched in 2011 as Cartour Epsilon and spent the majority of her Irish Ferries career on the Dublin-Holyhead route, as well as a weekly Dublin-Cherbourg round trip.

Her short-term replacement is the P&O vessel Norbay, which Irish Ferries has chartered for six months.

Long term it is rumoured that Oscar Wilde will move to Dublin-Holyhead when Irish Ferries find a suitable replacement for her on the Rosslare-Pembroke route.
