I would honestly be shocked as a good frequent user off irish ferries if they took the WB yeats off the Ulysses schedule.  The Ulysses really needs an overhaul . Its constantly having problems as where the Yeats is a fantastic ship.and very reliable compared to the Ulysses.  There is more bad weather on the way .

Apparently Ulysses has being also having technical and operational issues,  so it makes sense to switch the WB yeats to it's the Ulysses schedule.  The yeats is more reliable . I would keep the yeats on the Ulysses schedule until it returns from Poland.

All I can Say for 20 years old the Inishmore is a Fantastic Ship , I have great memories of the inishmore , Gayle force 11 storms while on the Dublin - Holyhead route , Being in the Bridge meeting Captain Tom Joyce so Many years ago . Also Im glad the inishmore is around until Tuesday at least on the Dublin - Holyhead route I hope to get another trip on it . Such a lovely vessel I wish it would stay in Dublin . Great ferry . Every time the inishmore comes to Dublin id happily to  take a trip on it . it is well maintained such a credit to irish ferries . I was on the inishmore yesterday it took to the irish sea with a minor delay but no problems at all to the lovely ferry .

Hi Friends , I am just wondering why Irish ferries don't offer day trips on the Oscar wilde when its up helping out in Dublin , But what annoys me is when the Oscar Wilde Covers the Isle of Inishmore its able to take foot passengers . Why cant the Oscar wilde Cover the Ulysses refit . Today the Swift was cancelled all the swifts foot passengers where transferred to the Oscar wilde its completely stupid . I only do the Day trips on the Dublin - Holyhead route for my young son . I tired to ring irish ferries about it I was told I would get a call back but never did . Thanks

Personally I would love to See Irish Ferries to have there vessels based at Dublin . I really want to go to on the Oscar Wilde , Also I would love to see the Isle of Inishmore back at Dublin to assist  the Ulysses on the Dublin to Holyhead Route . The Inishmore is a Super vessel along with the Ulysses . Irish ferries would clean up if You go direct from Dublin - Cherbourg as a Foot passenger . And having the Inishmore / Ulysses on the Dublin - Holyhead Route would be great for Freight . Irish ferries would clean up .

I might Chance another trip on the Inishmore on Monday So , I travelled on the Inishmore on the 07/01/16 Dublin - Holiday , This ship is well maintained in great condition very comfortable . It took a very heavy on the 07/01/16 because the swift was cancelled again surprise there . I hope the inishmore returns to Dublin this year . It is a great cruise ship .

Hi there , I travelled on Isle of Inishmore last Thursday 07/01/16 , I haven't stepped foot on the Isle of Inishmore Since its transfer in 2001 and I have to say it is in great condition I really enjoyed my day trip on it . Also on the 07/01/16 The Jonathan swift didn't sail no Surprise there . The Inishmore took a great load over and Back with no problems . I really miss the Inishmore on the Dublin - Holyhead route I hope it comes back soon. Yesterday I done a day trip on the Stena Adventurer / Superfast x and they are much more Comfortable than any fast ferry . there is lots to do on board . Irish ferries need to get rid of the Explison and Swift from the Dublin - Holyhead route Send them both to rosslare until they get a Replacement for the Isle of inishmore . Because stena are leading the Dublin - Holyhead route with to lovely Cruise Ferries in My opinion .
