DUBLIN FERRY TRIP TO WALES FOR ONLY € 6,50
One of the best things about studying in Ireland is to be able to travel cheaply, but it is not every day that the search for cheap tickets works. So to ensure a cheap trip, there is an option to go to Wales for just € 6.50 round trip. Go for it!
Some exchangers are unaware that it’s also possible to go to another country by ferry, leaving the port of Dublin. The destination is Holyhead, Wales, which is part of the UK, and the attractive price of € 6.50 is a promotion of the shipping company Stena Line.
But beware: the price is only valid for Tuesdays. On other days the tickets cost € 15.
The best option is to buy the ticket for the first ship at 8:20 am to enjoy the whole day there. You need to arrive earlier at the port to check in. And to get there you can go by taxi or on bus 53 and 151. Already on the way back the options are taxi or transfer, because the ship arrives around 11.30 pm and the buses are no longer working.

Pound is the local currency, but you can still find some places that accept euro. Inside the ship there is an option to choose the currency that you will use, however just to make sure, exchange some money for a snack or whatever you want to buy.
