Boarding a ferry is always an option for those who want to travel with their own car without having to think about renting a car when they arrive at the destination, but also if they spend a night in the middle of the sea and enjoy a cruise in a large boat with restaurant and bar in addition to lounges and resting areas on deck, the pleasure is double.

Those who have on their agenda to make a trip to Ireland will have, from May 6, this option thanks to the new ferry service provided by the company Brittany Ferries, which will have two weekly frequencies.

With a capacity of 500 passengers and 195 cars, the Connemara offers the possibility of spending the night in cabins with different options: quadruple exterior; quadruple interior; Double outside accessible with wheelchair or quad outside reserved for those traveling with their pet.

The ship has a self-service restaurant that offers a selection of hot and cold dishes as well as snacks and desserts.

What to see in Cork County

Famous attractions such as the English Market or English Market, the Crawford Municipal Art Gallery, Fort Elizabeth, the Cathedral of San Finbar or even the Butter Museum are just some of the stops that await you at the end of the Brittany Ferries trip.

From Santander to Cork. A city that, while striking by itself, is just the point of origin to travel through southern and eastern Ireland.

The County of Cork invites you to travel through its colorful villages, each with a personality as unique as the previous. Approaching Kinsale to try its gastronomy is more than recommended, as will also visit the town with Skibbereen market or breathe the bustling atmosphere of Clonakilty.

Those who prefer to relax in the middle of nature will find their perfect oasis in the vast expanses of wild vegetation of the Sheep’s Head peninsula, agitated by little more than the hiss of the wind passing through the abandoned copper mines of the Atlantic.
