It looks as though the schedule may have changed to Friday - I was on Oscar Wild inbound from Cherbourg yesterday, the Neptune Lines ship appeared behind us on the horizon around 9AM yesterday morning, overtook us out in the Celtic Sea and berthed just before us at Rosslare...we were slightly early so had to wait just outside Rosslare harbour for the Neptunes Line ship to berth, she used the berth normally used by Isle Of Innishmore and departed not long before Isle Of Innishmore arrived from Pembroke Dock, the ships passing each other in the harbour approach channel.

Thanks for solving the mystery  :) From your answer I googled and was able to find this link with explanation and photos -

Well curiosity got the better of me so I called IF.....they said that she is back on schedule on Thursday, currently in Zeebrugge for a "special event"....she did not know what the special event was though.

Interesting - according to the freight site ( which has schedules further in advance than the passengers site ) it looks as though she will be back on schedule from Cherbourg on the 13th.

Hi All,

I'm not affected by it, just curious....I notice that Oscar Wilde's sailing from Cherbourg on Tuesday is cancelled...no explanation on IF site....anybody know the reason?

thanks....

Sounds about the same as I experienced earlier this year.....as I was transferring to/from Isle Of Innishmore in both directions the rail station situation did not affect me but I did see some bemused passengers trying to figure out whether or not there were any trains running as the area seemed deserted  :) While waiting for the Isle Of Innishmore on the return leg I got chatting to a chap who worked in Security, he explained that the walkway, normally used by OW foot passengers was broken and needed a hug amount of money spending on it to repair - travelling again in a couple of weeks and I was wondering if it might have been repaired for the summer season....seems not.

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anybody knows whether or not Isle Of Inishmore is having technical difficulties at the moment? Has been running around 30 - 40 minutes late per sailing over the last couple of days and the delay has reached about an hour today...weather seems to be ok?

thanks,

Andy

Ok they just updated the website...."weather and technical."

Perhaps Isle of Innishmore has just been going through a bad few weeks but I have been keeping an eye on her timekeeping recently as I have booked on a 14:45 sailing from Pembroke to connect with an Oscar Wilde sailing to Cherbourg ( 3rd attempt...1st attempt was scuppered by Oscar Wilde's late return from dry dock, 2nd attempt was scuppered by the bad weather a couple of weeks ago...so I'm hoping for 3rd time lucky on April 6th ) - I originally thought that with an arrival into Rosslare of 18:46 and a departure to Cherbourg same evening at 21:30 connecting would be a doddle....but having seen the almost constant late running of Isle Of Innishmore I'm no longer so confident..........is she normally a good timekeeper? Certainly there does not seem to be much left in the tank to make up lost time when she is running late., difficult to make up time on a short crossing I know.

Thanks - most likely the case, actually I misread the timings and thought that she was running 4 hours late...but actually just over an hour.

Isle of Innishmore heavily delayed today due to "extraordinary circumstances" according to IF site....anybody know what these "extraordinary circumstances are? As far as I can tell the bad weather cleared away quite quickly yesterday.

IF site now showing an On Time departure for Oscar Wilde on the 11th and AP site shows that she is due to leave just before midnight tomorrow....although destination says "sea" so perhaps a test run first?

I heard from a friend in Belfast harbour that Oscar Wilde is leaving today.

Phew! Thanks - was starting to get a bit nervous even though the sailing is showing "on time" on the IF site.

All of Oscar Wilde's sailings up until February 28th are cancelled - presumably she will sail direct to Cherbourg from Belfast to pick up the schedule from Cherbourg on March 1st.
Don't see why. Sure she has to pass both Dublin and Rosslare on the way!

Well actually that sailing has now also been cancelled so it seems that she will go direct from Belfast to Rosslare for the sailing on the 2nd......hope so anyway as I'm booked on that sailing.
