Irish Ferries Introduces New Dublin Swift Catamaran

The upgraded high-speed Dublin Swift twin-hulled catamaran has recently joined the Irish Ferries fleet following a full internal refurbishment. It replaces the Jonathan Swift which has been in service since 1999.

Dublin Swift has a cruising speed of 35 knots and operates two crossings a day in each direction between Holyhead in North Wales and Dublin port.

The catamaran has greater car (220 vehicles) and passenger (820 people) capacity, making it the largest fast ferry on the Irish Sea. Onboard facilities include a dedicated TV Snug, cafeteria, self-service restaurant and games area. It offers spacious seating in the standard cabin, while the Club Class lounge at the front of the Dublin Swift (supplement £16 each way) offers comfortable reclining seats with sea views, complementary refreshments and in-seat phone/media charging points. Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout.

Dublin Swift one-way fares start at £154 for a car and two adults.
