Stena Line suspends Fishguard to Rosslare ferry route

Published

on

Stena Line has cancelled all of its Irish Sea crossings between Fishguard and Rosslare until 12 April.

The move comes as the ferry company looks to plug gaps left by P&O between Northern Ireland and the UK mainland over goods and food supply fears in the region.

Stena Nordica, which usually sails between Holyhead and Dublin has been sent to add additional capacity on the Northern Irish route between Cairnryan in Scotland and Larne.

Stena Europe has been sent from its usual Fishguard route to plug the gap caused by this movement.

Passengers intending on travelling to Ireland from Fishguard are being advised to book crossings with Irish Ferries from Pembroke Dock instead.

Simon Palmer from Stena Line is reported as saying that: “Due to the suspension of P&O’s services into Northern Ireland there were supply fears in the region.

“The issue is also compounded by the timing of the crisis happening during our annual dry-docking period, where our ships take turns going into the shipyard for a makeover.

“Otherwise we would’ve had a spare ship. The Stena Horizon from our Cherbourg route is currently in dry-dock, with that route being covered by the vessel Stena Estrid, which has been moved from her normal route on Holyhead to Dublin.”
