Press release   •   Jul 26, 2017 10:01 BST

IRELAND’S leading ferry company is encouraging Irish holidaymakers to take advantage of its incredible value day trip to Wales from only €6.50* giving people the chance to enjoy a day out across the Irish Sea for less than what it would cost to buy a daily Leap Card for Dublin Bus.

How far would €6.50 take you when travelling in Ireland? With Stena Line, it will take you across the Irish Sea with a day trip by foot from Dublin to Holyhead or Rosslare to Fishguard and time on Welsh soil from only €6.50* per person. This great value day trip is available on selected days when you book 48 hours or more in advance.

If you would like to stay a bit longer or if you are visiting one of the many festivals or sporting events in Britain this summer then Stena Line’s great short stay fare from only €45pp* by foot or €60pp* by car (based on three people travelling together) is ideal. Set sail from Dublin Port to Holyhead or Rosslare to Fishguard and spend up to 30 hours in Britain.

And as if a trip with Stena Line across the Irish Sea wasn’t a big enough reason to visit Wales this summer, you can also enjoy great discounts off top attractions. This includes 10% off Zip World where you will find Europe’s fastest zip line, 20% off Folly Farm and 3 tickets for the price of 2 at GreenWood Forest Park which has been voted the best family attraction in Wales. Once you have booked simply show your Stena Line boarding pass at the attraction ticket office and you can take advantage of the great savings.

And what’s more, Irish holidaymakers have until 31 July to snap up Stena Line’s KIDS GO FREE offer which gives under 16s the chance to travel for free* up until 15 December 2017.

Diane Poole OBE, Stena Line Travel Commercial Manager Irish Sea South said: “Wales is the perfect place to enjoy a day trip or short break this summer with beautiful countryside to take in, lots of places to visit and wonderful food to be enjoyed. We have an outstanding day trip by foot for the unbelievable price of only €6.50pp and a short stay fare from only €45pp. As well as this, when you travel with Stena Line you can also take advantage of some amazing discounts off top attractions throughout Wales.”
