The Ro–Ro Cargo Ship 'Stena Carrier' arrived into Dun Laoghaire Harbour this morning berthing at the Carlisle Pier.

The Danish flagged vessel has been at anchor in Dublin Bay since April 22nd. 

The 182.77m ship is the first such cargo arrival into the South Dublin Harbour that has been without regular commercial shipping since the cessation of the Stena HSS ferry in 2015.

Since then, the Harbour has only seen ad hoc cargo arrivals, such as the 2015 unloading of Guiness Fermentation tanks. sources confirm that Stena Carrier is alongside at number two berth in Dun Laoghaire for 'survey work' but there will be many in the vacant harbour hoping that this could possibly be the start of a new relationship with the Scandinavian company.
