How you can travel to Ireland from Wales this summer for less than £3

How you can travel to Ireland from Wales this summer for less than £3

If you fancy a day trip with a difference this summer, we’ve got just the thing.

Stena Line have offers on trips to Ireland for just £2.75 each way (that’s £5.50 return).

And kids under the age of three go free.

You’d need to travel there and back in a day, but you’d get a good few hours in Dublin. So if you fancy a trip with friends for a few beers in Dublin’s legendary pubs, or giving the kids a ride on a ferry (it’s a great part of the experience after all) followed by a few hours in Ireland, then it’s a great trip.

The cheapest fares are sailing on a Tuesday, departing from Holyhead just before 9am and arriving in time for lunch.

And if Tuesdays don’t suit you, you can travel on a Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday for £12 return.

The ferry leaves at 8.55am and there’s a return service back to Holyhead at 8.40pm, the Daily Post reports.

The bars of Dublin’s Temple Bar – a day trip with a difference

Once in Dublin, you can hop on a shuttle bus from the port straight into the city centre – and Dublin is compact enough to get around.

You can book online at Stena’s website here.

But if that all seems like too much work for a day out, we have 44 big events in Wales for summer 2018 here and 34 things to do with the kids over the summer holidays here.
