Taking a ferry from London to Ireland

Written by on August 13, 2014 in Guest Posts - No comments

Are you looking for a different way to travel? I know I am always searching for cool ways to see the world and traveling from London to Ireland by ferry certainly encompasses what I am looking for.



Well, for starters it gets me off the airplanes and down onto the ground level. There’s nothing I love more than seeing the world and all it entails from places I wouldn’t expect (like on a ferry crossing from the England to Ireland). Plus, once in Ireland, there are so many different options to boat around the country and see it from a different perspective.

Forget about the traffic. Forget about road rules. Forget about expensive baggage fees or cramped leg room. Or crappy airline food. Or sitting next to the baby who cries the entire flight.

On the water, there’s nothing but me and the boat, and that’s a beautiful thing to me.  Oh, and the wifi. In the middle of the Irish Sea.

Ireland is one of those places I fell in love with four years ago. The people, the gorgeous architecture, the rolling emerald hills and stone fences lining the interior of the country. Magical. And it is a place I dream of returning to one day. Perhaps this autumn when I visit London I will hop on a ferry and head over to Ireland for a little vacation!
