Ferry Services Update during COVID 19

By 25/03/2020News

(Updated 22 September 2020) Due to the current pandemic, travel requirements and restrictions are subject to change, we have therefore put together the below list of available routes and services but advise that you also check service updates directly with your ferry operator. 

During the lockdown ferry operators continued to work hard to facilitate essential travel for key workers, as well as to ensure the flow of essential goods and services, including food and medical equipment, across the UK, Ireland and British Islands. Most operators were running a reduced service for passengers during this time. We therefore advise you to check directly with your operator before planning your trip.
