Press release   •   May 08, 2017 09:24 BST

From May 6 until May 22, anyone who books a new motorist fare to Ireland on the Holyhead to Dublin, Fishguard to Rosslare, Cairnryan to Belfast and Liverpool to Belfast routes, with leading ferry company Stena Line, gets to bring a friend for free* (for travel up to December 17)!

The incredible deal has been launched as part of the National Ferry Fortnight celebrations so get booking now and take a buddy on an Ireland adventure for free.

Diane Poole OBE, Head of PR and Communications, Stena Line, said: “For those who haven’t experienced the joys of ferry travel or who want to rediscover all the fun of a trip by sea, now is the time to book as you get to bring your best friend or a work buddy for free. Or following the theme of this year’s National Ferry Fortnight, ‘Ferry Together’ why not surprise a family member with a free trip across the Irish Sea.”

Diane continued: “A visit to Ireland any time of the year is a joy and as you can travel up to December 17, many key times are included in our offer. For instance, during the summer months is the perfect time to enjoy a cosy picnic in one of Ireland’s gorgeous green spaces or golden beaches. So book a new motorist fare, which start from *£79 single, car + 2, by May 22, and experience Ireland in your own way, including the great craic and friendly people, the fantastic shopping and world-class tourist attractions.

“Not only that but our passengers are treated to excellent customer service throughout the ship, comfortable seating, speciality coffee houses, free WiFi, free movies, great value dining options, kids play areas, discounted shopping, and so much more, when they get onboard. Plus, there are no baggage restrictions, unlike the airlines, so people can fill their boots and bring all the comforts of home with them.

“If you’re looking to add even more luxury to your trip, why not enjoy all the benefits of the Stena Plus lounge such as a dedicated waiter service and complimentary snacks and drinks. And if you want to arrive feeling refreshed you can add a suite or cabin to your booking.

“For those travelling on the Cairnryan – Belfast route, our ships even have the Pure Nordic Spa where you can get your nails done, have a dip in the Jacuzzi or get a massage. The journey with us is always part of the adventure”, concluded Diane.
