Set sail on a summer day trip to Wales for only €6pp*

Press Releases   •   Jul 28, 2015 13:53 BST

Stena Line has launched its €6 per person return day trip to Wales and it is already making waves with people in Ireland!

Travel every Tuesday on Stena Line’s Dublin Port route and depart at 8.20am, spend a little time in Holyhead and return on the 1.50pm or 8.30pm ferry. Day trippers departing from Rosslare will set sail at 9am, hop off and spend some time in the coastal town of Fishguard before returning on the 2.30pm sailing. Day trips are also available for €12 per person on a Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The great-value price means that a day trip to Wales is affordable for thousands of couples and families across Ireland and as Stena Line’s amazing ships have more things to do than you can shake a shillelagh stick at, it’ll be a few euros well spent.

Diane Poole OBE Stena Line’s Head of PR & Communications said: “Staggering! Unbelievable! Just some of the words our customers have used to describe our €6 per person return day trip fare to Wales. For families, groups, couples, with an eye on the holiday budget this €6 fare is fantastic as it means everyone can get away for the day and enjoy a quality trip across the Irish Sea.

“What does €6 get you these days? You wouldn’t get much change from a return ticket to a seaside town or from a visit to the cinema and anyway you get to watch the latest blockbuster films for free onboard in our very own cinema. But the same €6 gets you to Wales and back for an adventure the kids can tell all their mates about but more importantly everyone gets to spend the day together having a ball!”

Children love the thrill of a journey by ferry as they aren’t confined to a small space and a tiny seat. There are safe-play areas and kids’ fun zones where children sometimes spend the whole journey. And between July, 17 and September, 6, Stena Line has some fantastic things to keep the kids entertained on selected sailings including a meet and greet by the entertainers, colourful art and design sessions, hilarious puppet shows, exciting games and fun competitions.

Diane continued: “When you travel with Stena Line there are no fun-sapping long queues at check-in and there are many places to explore onboard, a fabulous array of dining options, great value meal deals, free blockbuster movies and free Wi-Fi.”

There is up to 50% off lots of quality lines when compared to the high street in the bargain-filled onboard shop. There is a value meal deal for families for only £25, which gets you any 2 adult meals, up to 3 kids’ meals and up to 5 hot/cold drinks** (**excluding alcohol, subject to availability).

Get onboard and enjoy a €6 day trip the Stena Line way! Book online atwww.stenaline.ie/days.
