Before I shell out a massive amount of money for Ireland-Spain direct ferries, I thought I'd ask here if there was any way to reduce the cost. The code for Spain apparently only works for UK departures. I did look at doing an Ireland/UK/Spain trip but that's even more expensive.

I'm looking to travel Rosslare-Bilbao. Thought of doing it only one-way but my usual Cherbourg-Dublin ferry doesn't seem to run past end Oct....??

Well that's very strange - I can apparently book Cherbourg-Dublin thro direct Ferries for 6th Nov, but not direct with Irish Ferries whose schedule goes only as far as the end of Oct...??

Be interested to hear Jean. We have no plans to go back to NI but if we did I think that would be my preferred route, though I'd be wary of the Bay of Biscay in the winter.

Booked 21 Sep (intended 23rd but by the time I'd pfaffed around looking for a discount, that ferry was full!)

Swithering about booking return 6th Nov on same route... 🤮 But last time I did, and it was cancelled, I hot-footed it north and made Ouistreham in less than 3 days. So thinking I might be safer going my usual Cherbourg-Dublin.

That'd be a nice time to visit I reckon Jean. After the summer bods have gone but before the snow birds arrive en masse. Still nicely warm though but not red hot.

Have you toured Spain before?

Irish ferries web site have Cherbourg/Dublin sailings right through to end of the year. Looks like WB Yeats is staying on the route this winter
