#NewTimetable - The launch of the new timetable on Stena Line’s Rosslare – Fishguard route has begun this week. The revised timetable now gives customers the chance to avail of three day sailings and one extended overnight crossing.

The operator have carried out extensive customer research and feedback. In addition to reviewing the previous schedule that has led to the introduction of a more customer friendly timetable which now comprises of three x 3 hour 15 minutes daytime crossings making the route the shortest and fastest crossing between Ireland and South Wales.

Ian Davies, Stena Line’s Trade Director, Irish Sea South commented: “We recently carried out a substantial investment in the Stena Europe vessel and to ensure we make the most of this service for our customers, we carried out extensive research with them to find out how we can provide an even more enjoyable travel experience.

“After analysing the results, we made the decision to amend the timetable on our Rosslare to Fishguard route and are now delighted to offer our customers three day sailings and an extended overnight crossing. This not only creates new opportunities which were not previously available on the market for our travel and freight customers, but also reduces the crossing times on some of our sailings by 15 minutes.”

Stena Line’s sailing schedule between Rosslare and Fishguard is now:

Departure Arrival Crossing Time
Rosslare 08:00 11:15 3hr15
Fishguard 13:10 16:25 3hr15
Rosslare 18:10 21:25 3hr15
Fishguard 23:45 04:00 4hr15*

*Overnight sailing time will increase by 15 minutes giving customers a little more time to rest particularly drivers before they disembark.
