To prevent any confusion would recommend contacting IF direct, either on Facebook/Twitter or ring them to get required information.

Website info probably not enough detail

Yes I recommend contacting Irish Ferries they have always answered my queries via direct message on twitter.

Stena Line have their menu published on the website which something Irish Ferries is lacking in.

PS Welcome to the forum!

Yes, welcome. Twitter is best approach and it's always via DMs, which is a shame as others might benefit from info. Brittany Ferries only use DMs when asking for personal info, but are open with replies to general information.

Local hens eggs on the menu, does that mean they are from the port of registry of the ship , plus the description of the Mexican burger is , a crusty baguette with Irish butter  . Very Mexican .

Prices strike me as quite expensive. 13 euro for beef and Guinness pie? I think these are a good bit higher than they were in 2017 on the OW.

Been reading a lot of criticism online about pricing onboard.  Mind you ferries aren't exactly renowned for value for money in this respect, and the price of food has been rising.  A special offer here and there could make a lot of difference in passenger perception though!

Not a menu expert by any means, but what other eggs would you normally get for breakfast or omelette other than Hens Eggs ? would it not read better if it was “Free Range” like the a Golden Arches offering.

Have to say menus are nice and give a range of food and options to cover most palettes , interesting to see they cook the meat joints on board, nothing to fault the food side of things.

Ostrich eggs for breakfast here

Hi everyone, new to the forum - I've been looking at the menus and agree they are overpriced - sound lovely but previous experience has shown me that the food on IF isn't good.  Does anyone who has sailed on the WB Yeats know if they have a microwave onboard.  I will be sailing to France in a few weeks time, and I always used the Oscar Wilde Rosslare Route and the microwave was very handy for heating up some pre-prepared grub - (I know terribly miserly, of me...but I have been stung so often by the fayre on board!)

TIA

I just notice that IF have now put a menu up on website for the Lady Gregory restaurant.  It purports to be very upmarket and they have priced it accordingly.  Three courses comprising soup, appetisers and main course (no desserts) cost €59.95.  They must want to discourage people using the LG.

I mentioned elsewhere on the forum that we;d eaten in the Lady Gregory on a trip to France in early April. We paid €39.95 and felt is was good value and worth the money. The cashier told me that it was an introductory price and would be increasing to €49.95 soon. Dont think I'd pay €49.95 for the meal we had and certainly wouldn't pay €59.95 each for it.  :o

Just returned from hull Rotterdam round trip with P&o ferries and to dine in the “kitchen” all you can eat buffet was £15,00pp sterling...the choices ranged from several types of curry dishes and two joints of the day /chicken/ribs/fish/vegetarian cold meats etc .all unlimited soft drinks were included in the price .. unfortunately irish ferries are out of touch with there restaurant pricing ....they must have Gordon Ramsey cooking in the kitchen to charge those prices ...👎👎 have a look at the food on offer in the “kitchen”on the P&o pride of hull in the following link....https://youtu.be/P8ZsqJRWp5s
