Passengers set to sail via fast ferry with Irish Ferries have had to seek alternative travel arrangements as the service has been cancelled due to unsettled weather conditions.

“There were many travellers due to sail on the fast ferry but we had to cancel the line due to adverse weather conditions,” said Brian Woolfall at Irish Ferries.

Customers were notified yesterday by text and email that they would be transferred to the Ulysses service offered by the sailing line, according to the spokesperson who works in reservations for the group.

“The Ulysses departs from the same port but departure times may differ and travel time will be more lengthly,” warned Mr Woolfall, as passengers can expect to add at least an hour and 15 minutes to their sailing time.

Services for the fast ferry are also cancelled for tomorrow while Saturday’s service is “still in doubt”.

Customers can contact the Dublin Customer Contact Centre at 0818 300 400 for more up to date travel information.
