The Julia berthed in Ringaskiddy this morning in glorious sunshine. She will leave tonight on schedule from Ringaskiddy at 9 p.m. and is sailing on her normal schedule from now on.

“Our core objective in Fastnet Line is to operate a profitable ferry service. We have a clear set of goals over the next 2 years that we will deliver on. We want to build a top class team who will make the Cork Swansea ferry service a reality. We aim to create a flagship service that will showcase what’s best about the South West of Ireland, we will market the service and grow tourism and employment. We aim to facilitate trade between the southwest of Ireland and Wales UK and we will ensure the long term viability of the business.”

This new ferry service saves 600km (375 miles) driving on a round trip and connects the M4 Motorway in the UK directly to Cork on Ireland’s South coast. The service will offer overnight sailing 6 nights a week (Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday from Cork and Wednesday, Friday & Sunday from Swansea) departing at 21:00 and arriving at 7:00 the next morning. Additional sailings will be added in the high season.

The MV Julia has capacity for up to 1,860 passengers, 440 cars, 40 trucks and over 300 cabins on board for a comfortable journey. Facilities include a selection of restaurants, bars, shops, cinema, children’s area and comfortable kennels available for your pets.
