  1. It certainly is. I've asked about it a couple of times in BF Cork. The explanation given was that a large propotion of those travelling were intending on making 6 hour+ journeys south, I can see the rational behind this and I know when the kids were young and we headed south towards Bordeaux the early arrival was a big plus. However now that its just the 2 of us we tend to stay in Finistere and arriving at 7am or earlier is of zero benefit. To be honest I'm inclined to think that the early arrival is to enable the vessel to get in an early morning departure to Plymouth.
  2. Brexit: Up to 40,000 motorists with UK licences face being put off road
  3. I was passing BF's office in Cork yesterday and called into ask when the 2020 timetable would be available. I was told mid October. I also asked if the 2nd Cork-Roscoff sailing would be continuing and it was confirmed that it would be. However I was told that the day of the sailing (currently Monday night ex Cork) might change.
  4. Few pics of Connemara arriving in Cork from Santandar earlier this evening more here https://flic.kr/s/aHsk8PJNE2
  5. https://coastalshipping.co.uk/ also supply single issues.
  6. Just added a short video of Amorique arriving to my flckr album https://flic.kr/p/2fQ9Ttc
  7. Departure time now showing as 23.00hr on Port of Cork website.
  8. A few of mine from Amoriques arrival earlier. Lots more added here https://flic.kr/s/aHsk8PJNE2
  9. Its cabin number 8106 and IF call it Deluxe Suite Double bed.
  10. Agree with most of that cept the bed is fine. I'm over 6ft tall and spelt comfortably in it. My biggest gripe about the WB Yeats is the lack of outside deck space. The only outside space is on deck 11. And the available seating amounts wouldn't seat more than 60
  11. Forgot to mention that there are 2 tvs in the cabin 🤣
  12. Traveled on WB Yeats Dublin to Cherbourg last week. 50+ pics here at https://flic.kr/s/aHskTUKxJs Here;s a few
  13. The 223 bus now appears to run hourly from/to Ringaskiddy village https://www.buseireann.ie/timetables/223-1539871777.pdf Though depending on where people are staying a taxi as Cabin-boy pointed out would probably be a better option.
  14. Happy Christmas to one and all!
