The ro-ro ferry will enter service between Dover and Calais in the first quarter of 2022

Irish Ferries will add a third ro-ro ferry to its service between Dover, UK, and Calais, France, in the first quarter of 2022. 

Built in 2000 by the Astilleros Españoles SA shipyard in Spain, the ship has capacity for 589 passengers and over 90 freight vehicles. Facilities for passengers include a self-service restaurant, café and bar, onboard duty-free shop and outdoor decks. 

The ship will be renamed in the coming weeks, and will join Isle of Inishmore and Isle of Innisfree on the Dover-Calais route. 

“The addition of a third vessel on our Dover-Calais route will allow us to offer a departure from either Dover or Calais every 90 minutes,” said Andrew Sheen, managing director of Irish Ferries. “This is a further sign of our commitment to this route and will offer customers even greater choice along with the capacity, frequency and reliability that is required to service this important route between GB and France.”
