  1. So confusing all this refund malarkey. Irish Ferries customers are going nuts on the Facebook page as they are only being offered credit notes for future bookings and not cash deposit refunds. IF state that they are sailing to schedule as far as they are concerned nothing has changed, but sailing to schedule for freight !! not holidaying car passengers, who could in every sense sail to France and get no further than the port. I have a booking with them for July which I very much doubt will happen and I am unable to re book for later, will I just lose my deposit altogether ?
  2. I see my old friend Ulysses in the background, what's the craic there ? is she in need of some TLC ?
  3. Belfast B&Q also have a big burger van in the carpark not far from the docks either .... is this a B&Q thing ... like a franchise ?
  4. Arrived at 06.45 and home before 7 !! that would be a dream come true
  5. The sad thing is, pardon the pun (that's only a drop in the ocean) ..... they just keep producing more and more
  6. I have been looking at Fougeres ? roughly about 30 miles this side of Rennes ..... and could still get round Rennes before rush hour.
  7. I will keep an eye out Ed ..... always a spare place at my table.
  8. I feel like I may have misled some people ... I never said I wanted to stop at a restaurant ... I just wanted somewhere to stop for a break and something to eat sort of half way along, could be services, Mc d's, or somewhere like that on the way that was easy to get to ..... Although ED rekons I'm loaded now with all the savings I made, I will use that money later on in my holiday
  9. I did sail with IF to Roscoff on the Oscar Wilde from Rosslare once ... it was purely to see what it was like and to compare it to the Cork sailing .... I really liked the Oscar Wilde as many have said who have sailed on her, but it's usually a price thing with us as there are 5 in our party. Next year it's a Dublin departure with the choice of a sailing every other day, we are not limited to the weekly Saturday sailing from Cork, and Dublin is less than a 2 hour drive now from Belfast rather than the 4.5 hours to Cork.
  10. Lol ... 400euro is hardly cash rich but it's better than nothoing I suppose, thanks for all the advise, i'm looking at routes and planning the drive, hopefully it all goes smoothly
  11. It's about 140 miles from Cherbourg so I could easily be there or there abouts in about 3 hours, given the time it takes to dissembark from an 11.30 docking, could be about 15.30 and before rush hour
  12. Are you referring to me as 'cash rich' ED ..... lol .... think again ... definitely not me. .... this talk of the Rennes Peripherique is a bit scary .... hopefully nothing like Paris !! ..... is it better to go beyond Rennes and then stop for eats ?
  13. Arrival Cherbourg around 11.30 am ... looking Carnac around 5.30pm (hopefully) ... arriving on a Tuesday morning in July.
  14. Has anyone driven this route, first time to Cherbourg for us, thinking about stopping somewhere mid way, any suggestions for a food stop ? .... is the best route through (round) Rennes ? ...... just putting it out there .... cheers.
  15. I've got to say I will miss sailing on the Pont Aven in July, as it's been our preferred choice for a lot of years now. When I enquired about the 50% deposit and not the usual 25% they basically said it is what it is and that I should take out insurance to cover it as it was non refundable ! ...... no thanks, 700 euro is a bit steep for any deposit. I have booked Irish Ferries from DUB/CHER for around 400 euro less than BF wanted ... 100 euro deposit and 2.5 hours less driving time as I'm coming from Belfast to Dublin now and not Cork ..... I'm just waiting on the WBY to have an engine fi
