Meanwhile, I would be surprised if they would use Dun Laoghaire again for ferry services as STENA ceased all operations from this exit point some years ago when operations transferred to Dublin Port. Is the linkspan gone in Dun Laoghaire?
When travel restrictions eventually ease in the weeks/months ahead, perhaps there will be an major increase in demand on Ireland to UK routes. With Cork Airport set to shut down from September to November, perhaps a good time for more thinking outside the box as many people may want to travel following vaccination after such long lockdowns on non-essential international travel. Perhaps Port of Cork should explore new passenger ferry services ex-Cork to UK with Cork Airport not operating much commercial traffic and planning to close for runway extension next Autumn. With Duty Free Shopping now resumed it may make it viable for operators to consider running ferry services ex-Cork to a UK port in the coming months? Options may include either a Cork to Swansea, Cork to Pembroke Dock or Cork to Fishguard? Tourism interests in the South-West Cork & Kerry regions would certainly welcome any such move.I really doubt it anyone will be doing Cork - UK in the near future. Ignoring the pandemic, Brexit has had a massive impact on ROI - UK traffic (Stena are reducing Dublin - Holyhead to one ship at the weekend, and not finding cover for Europe - there is all the evidence you need).
There is stil a roro ramp at berth 4 in Dun Laoghaire Harbour where the Lynx used to berth
