Offering the most international destinations of any port in Ireland, Rosslare welcomes ferries from both the UK and France to its sunny shores.
With four arrivals a day from Wales and up to eight a week from France, travelsupermarket.com's ferry comparison channel offers all the major ferry services to southern Ireland. Situated in `the sunny south-east' Rosslare gets more hours of sunshine than any other part of Ireland. The harbour, 4km further south, is the most south-eastern point in Ireland and was first developed in 1906 by the Great Western Railway Company who saw the potential of bringing goods via Rosslare. Today Rosslare remains an important freight port, but also welcomes over one million ferry passengers to Ireland every year.
The tiny village of Rosslare lies in the gorgeous Rosslare bay, fronted by miles and miles of some of Europe's finest beaches. A popular destination with families and surfers alike, the Wexford coast offers a number of fantastic golf courses as well as abandoned castles and mansions. A relaxing and invigorating holiday location in itself, Rosslare is well connected for such a small village; the N25, Ireland's major expressway, begins at Rosslare Harbour.
With Ireland's widest range of destinations, Rosslare is a busy port;
Celtic Link Ferries offer up three sailings a week from Rosslare to Cherbourg, while Irish Ferries offer two weekly sailings for the same route.
