    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    Yes indeed, great to hear of such feedback. I wonder have the uncertainties around Brexit concentrated the minds of some.

    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    seems like this new route has plenty of potential , see article - http://www.eveningecho.ie/businessnews/New-Cork-to-Spain-ferry-link-will-be-a-game-changer-2dad75ef-53e4-4540-acef-68ad6d249a3b-ds
  3. Just wondering if this is something that folks are interested in; anyway, I'll get the ball rolling "Attention All Shipping" - Charlie Connelly - billed as "a journey round the shipping forecast" ; imho, well worth a listen.

    I suppose it's economies of scale & lack of competition; also that it's a new route, startup costs etc. that influence the pricing. Also, one is not out of pocket by much if the totality of a direct v landbridge is factored in as shown by JohnMustow.

    Thanks for all the detail and between the jigs and the reels of it, this new route looks like it'll be a big stress saver!

    Could you give a ballpark figure on the cost? thanks.

    I only say it in the context of creating a hub at Cork, maybe freight only , say to Plymouth or Portsmouth. Wishful thinking on my part!

    One can see a Cork-UK line being revived in time too - any takers? BF?

    This is fantastic news - and with an extra sailing to France thrown in for good measure!

    Cork..end of season.

    BF's cork route is fairly safe I would think - BF have actually been doing TV adverts here in Ireland this year - so they're their doing their bit at least. IF, for all their low fares talk, are usually fairly similar in price. There's something lovely about sitting in the Cafe on the PA listening to the announcements in Fench whilst still docked in Ringaskiddy. For next year, I booked direct with BF's Cork office rather than online - I found it a good way to book as those working there have an indept knowledge of France.
  11. I wonder with a hard Brexit looking more and more likely, will Irish ferries try an Ireland - Spain line with this ship ? ( As for Cork, I hope BF have no plans to cut & run, the PA is a lovely ship, a pleasure to travel on. BF wins for me anyday - if the service was cut I'd go landbridge via UK rather than any of the other incumbents as imho there's no substitute for quality! ) - now I've that off my chest, please carry-on!

    Roscoff to Spain?

    Never knew you could travel Roscoff - Spain, if that Gijon-St Nazaire route returns then this would take a fair chunk off the drive back.

    DUCHESSE ANNE

    MV Duchesse Anne is a previous guise - http://www.irishships.com/mvconnacht.html She's standing the test of time by the look of her today.

    Hooked - Salmon Angling

    There's good salmon angling to be had below the Inniscarra Dam , some 7 miles from Cork City Centre. http://www.gamefishireland.com/inniscarrapermits.htm

    Stargazing - Blackrock Castle

    An interesting visit - a short bus ride from the city centre - has a nice cafe too. http://www.bco.ie/
