Ferries

The recommended ferry route from the North and Midlands of England is from Holyhead to either Dun Laoghire or Dublin, using either Stena Line or Irish Ferries. Both Irish ports are close to main motoring routes; and it is possible to arrive at one port and depart from the other, to suit the traveller’s convenience.

Several of our clients recommend booking the ‘Stena Plus’ facility for a more comfortable travel experience.

Flights

The nearest airport is Cork, less than an hour from Ballincurrig, although there is much greater choice of flights to Dublin, which is around 3 hours away.

Ryanair fly from Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol East Midlands, Gatwick, Leeds, Luton, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted to Dublin; and from Gatwick, Liverpool and Stansted to Cork. Ryanair is famous for offering very cheap fares, especially when booked early; but you may fall foul of extra charges if you want to take other than cabin baggage or if you fail to book and check in via the Internet.

The profits from such additions have made Michael O'Leary a very rich man, which is no bad thing since he is a great supporter of Jumps racing in Ireland, and he raced Richard Rohan’s ‘pinhook’ War of Attrition to become a Champion steeplechaser.
