Book before January 23 to get this great offer. Irish Ferries is slashing 2018 ferry fares by 25 per cent.

The savings are on all cruise ferry sailings between the UK and Ireland, and on the Dublin Swift fastcraft.

The offer is available for travel between January 4 and August 31 2018, which includes all peak summer holiday dates, making Ireland a fantastic choice for families.

Dermot Kerrigan, head of passenger sales, says: “Travel to Ireland is big news for 2018, with the beautiful west coast splashed all over cinema screens in the new Star Wars movie.

“This is a brilliant offer to tempt families and other travellers to commit to a trip to Ireland now – and make significant savings.”

Bookings must be made online, 48 hours in advance of travel, and by midnight on January 23.

Normal fares for a car and driver start at just £79 one-way. With the offer, a family of two adults and two children under 16 travelling by car in August with reservations in Club Class can save £159.
