Located on the south-eastern tip of Ireland, Rosslare is a very busy port, with frequent connections to the UK and Europe and plenty of facilities, including a restaurant, bar, lounges, play areas and a bureau de change. The harbour area has plenty of accommodation and restaurants, and the port is an excellent gateway to the East, South East, West, Southwest and Midlands via the N11/N25 road network, with the N25 leading directly to the port.
Rosslare itself is a popular tourist resort, thanks mainly to the 300+ hours a year of sunshine it receives compared to the rest of Ireland and the glorious Blue Flag beach, often packed with holiday makers during the summer months. There are also plenty of watersport options, with surfing, sailing and windsurfing all popular activities. To help you relax Rosslare is home to some excellent restaurants specialising in local produce and also to some fine golf courses.
The port of Cherbourg is one of the most popular entry points into France from the UK. Cherbourg links to Brittany via the E03 and Caen and the Loire Valley via the E46 or the N132. On the N13 from Paris and Caen, follow signposts for Cherbourg Ferry Port.
Officially known as Cherbourg-Octeville, this scenic port-town is the gateway to Normandy. Despite being best-known simply as an arrival destination, once you get past the ferry port walls you'll find a charming location with much to discover. Cherbourg lies on the Cotentin Peninsula which is home to some spectacular coastline and plenty of safe, sandy beaches. Within the port is La Cite de la Mer, where you'll find the largest aquarium in Europe and a nuclear submarine.
The town houses many restaurants serving excellent cuisine, boutiques, 19th century gardens and many open air markets selling the freshest of foods. The countryside of the Val de Saire area, east of Cherbourg, and the Hague peninsula, to the west, also have much to offer.

Overall ok. Our motor home is particularly low to the ground and therefore we scraped the floor of the ships deck on the way up and on the way down each time on the steep loading ramp to deck 4. So not nice to hear that scraping sound. But no long term damage appears to have been caused thankfully. For this reason alone, we will probably use Irish ferries for future trips to France.
