Stena Line’s Stena Estrid has begun service on the Holyhead to Dublin route between Wales and Ireland, with her maiden voyage departing from Holyhead at 8:55am on 13 January.

During the crossing, which lasts three hours and 15 minutes, passengers will be able to enjoy a range of facilities, including the Sky Bar, a Hygge reclining lounge and Taste restaurant. The ship will make its first departure from Dublin at 2:50pm, sailing two return trips on the route each day.

At 215 metres in length, Stena Estrid is larger than the standard ro-pax vessel, with space to accommodate 120 cars and 1,000 passengers, as well as a freight capacity of 3,100 lane metres. She is the first of three new ferries that will operate on the Irish Sea as part of an investment in the region by Stena Line. Stena Edda is expected to enter service from Liverpool, England to Belfast, Northern Ireland this spring, while Stena Embla will be introduced on the same route in early 2021.
