If passenger demand is high enough you might see Bretagne or Normanide added to the route next year as a nice retirement home once Honfluer comes onstream, also worth noting that Bretagne will be visiting Cork in late October covering the final Saturday sailing of the season.

Or not.  Bretagne would struggle in terms of freight capacity if the route is successful with the code market it is aimed at with less than half that of Asterion/Connemara

First sailing out back to 3rd May ex Santander according to ]http://www.eldiariomontanes.es/cantabria/estreno-ruta-cork-20180418205419-nt.html]

Google translate of first couple of paragraphs
Finally, it will not be on April 29, as it was initially said, but on May 3 when the first direct route between the cities of Santander and Cork (Ireland) will start operating, which will be the first and only direct ferry line between the two countries. Last minute delays in the arrival of the ship to the shipyards of Astander (Astillero), where the final touches and tests will be given, have caused those days of difference between the announced and the real premiere.
The details of the line have been known for weeks but this Wednesday, on the occasion of the events for the 40 years of Brittany Ferries in Santander and the opening of the exhibition on this maritime relationship, the local, national and port authorities have given quote to present a route that according to the Minister of Development, ═˝igo de la Serna, opens "a new horizon of relations" with Ireland, at a time "especially complicated" in the relationship of the United Kingdom with the EU.
