Important Announcement: Irish Ferries W.B. Yeats

Irish Ferries' new vessel, the WB Yeats, will not be available to take passengers and vehicles on sailings booked between July 12 and July 29.

Irish Ferries have been informed by the German shipyard building the WB Yeats, that her delivery to Irish Ferries is likely to be delayed. While this delay is not yet fully confirmed by the shipyard they have, in the interests of minimising the level of potential disruption to customers, taken the decision to cancel a number of affected sailings in July from the 12th July to the 29th July

Irish Ferries are currently in contact with affected customers and offering spaces that we have held on the MV Oscar Wilde that are close to their booked sailing date. In the absence of an acceptable alternative, customers will be entitled to a full refund. Impacted customers have also been offered a €150 voucher by the company, for sailings next summer.

Unfortunately due to this extraordinary circumstance, it is beyond Irish Ferries’ control and they offer their utmost apologies for this inconvenience.
