WBY, not as good as the wonderful Oscar Wilde, my favourite ferry, but so much better than the Epsilion.

Thanks 12345Teacher,
When I started the video I thought you made a mistake and it was the Epsilion !  :)
The Connemara, while still pretty basic, seems a bit more appealing.
I will probably go Brittany Ferries. I will be driving over the bridge at Millau just for the craic.
Since I heard of the bridge at "miaow" I wanted to drive over it.

Just looking at the other options Brittany Ferries arrive Cherbourg 12.15. A good time to get to Tours or even
Stena arrive 16.00, which is too late to drive further into France.
Strangely Irish Ferries have ALL the cabins marked Fully Booked from 9th November on all sailings.
How does the Connemara compare with the Epsilion?

Thanks IF Pete. I'm traveling south so I cant book a hotel until I know the time the ship docks. Epsilon docks @ 14.30 so Le Mans, W.B. docks @ 12 so Tours. I phoned them but its " next couple of weeks".

Thanks, ccs, for that prompt reply. I would imagine (hope) that Irish Ferries would monitor a site called Irish Ferries Enthusiasts and reply themselves to a posting that related to them.

Why are Irish Ferries always tardy with their French timetables? Brittany Ferries and Stena have their 2022 timetables out but not Irish Ferries. Does anyone know why they hold back publication. They only have 2 sailings, first week January but all the cabins are marked " Fully Booked". I think that they are not but I.F. have blocked them off.
Does anyone know the logic for this?

In 1974 the ferry wasn't a car ferry, It was a very old ship. Sealink were the operators, a division of British Rail. Eventually Sealink was sold to Stena and became Stena Sealink and later the Sealink part was dropped.

I.F. seem to be totally immobilised by Brexit. The rest of us are flummoxed, but I.F. seem to be a bit more paralysed than most.

IF schedules Dublin Cherbourg out now. But no cabins and only 9 reclining seats available to book on each sailing!!!
What is going on?

I'd love that to be correct but a friend in that business (medical research) thinks we are at least a year away. The Asians are a couple of months ahead of USA, EU, UK and they don't have one. However what is improving however is treatment for Covid 19.

Well put awaityoureply.
 I didn't appreciate the 3 formidable challenges until I read your post
 On Brexit my guess is it will probably be (ii) Compromised fudge at last minute. Johnson will hale it as a stunning victory.
" I sincerely hope that all if not most providers can manage to keep their their heads above water in such tough challenging times and the worst could be yet to come once governments decide to reign in spending as that day will come in time I suspect."   
Its a bleak picture

Thanks for those replies. I suppose peering into the foggy mist that the Brexit chaos is producing is a challenge. Do they put the WB Yeats or the Episilon

Does anyone know when Irish Ferries will publish 2021 January sailings to France?
