Heineken Final - Getting home

Postby mtleinster » April 27th, 2011, 1:07 pm

I have booked the ferry from HHD to DUB for Sunday 22-May (leaving 13:50), but there is no trains (Cardiff to Dublin) at this time

Would there be any interest getting a coach organised from Cardif to HHD?

~Should be woth noting that it was €70 return for Sail and Rail to Cardiff and then just Sail back home with Stenna line

That is Nothing

You sure the sail and rail does not go through Rosslaire?

Cardiff to Hollyhead is a nightmare.

It might do, but Rosslare to Dublin is a nightmare

The less transfers the better

Believe me. Rosslaire to Dublin is a stroll in the park by comparison. Nice straight road. sure you'd hitch it in 5 mins.

Cardiff to Fishgard/Pembroke is similarly easy.

What he said.

Holyhead to Cardiff is an absolute nightmare. Nice scenery though.

By road it is about 6 or 7 hours round through England, or nearly 9 over the mountains. Did you say your boat leaves about 13:00? Best of luck mate.

Coming back through Rosslaire, in Leinster gear, you would get brought to your door by someone for the expense of a bit of cardboard with Dublin written on it. Especially if we win.

Took us 5 1/2 hours through the mountains (valleys?) for the fabled France v New Zealand 1/4 final. Dreadful journey on dreadful roads. Struggled to get out of 2nd/3rd gear. Nearly missed the boat on the way back.

I was driving, my passengers have not yet recovered.

Ryanair to Bristol early Saturday morning with a train to get us to Cardiff by 12:00.

Doing a Sail & Rail home via Fishguard at 2:45 Sunday morning arriving back in Rosslare 24 hours after we left Dublin. €150 all in.

Going to be 5 very tired and emotional bodies sleeping it off on that ferry home.

Well it was 20 years ago and we probably got lost at least once. :oops: Think that was to the Severn bridge.

It's not so bad round through England, further in distance but much quicker roads.

I have been advised it is about a 5 hour drive, and have to be in HHD at 13:00 for a 13:50 departure

Still for a €70 round trip it's nothing (well, more pacman shape)

Bus Eireann 002 Service from Rosslare Harbour to Dublin 06:30, 07:30 Sunday Morning. Takes 3.30 to Belfield. Always do Rail/Sail for Welsh game, via Rosslare, as it is the Cheapest. BTW it's an hourly service to/from Dublin with BE.

As an old hand at Rail/Sail i might be able to help here. I take it you have booked a return Dublin Port/Cardiff/Dublin Port Rail/Sail with Stena. These ticket are valid for 1 month from the date of the outward journey. That means on your return you could get the early Monday morning (02:30) crossing. I've often turned up on a return journey and got a later or earlier ferry (sometimes by several days). You are not tied to the specific Ferry departure, only that you use Stena Line. Depending if you bought your ticket by Phone or at Dun Laoghaire Ferry Terminal you might be able to change your return route to Rosslare. You would have to factor in the Bus fare from Rosslare Harbour to Dublin (around €22), as there is an add on fare on Rosslare Rail/Sail tickets for Dublin, which is applicable only on Iarnrod Eireann services, (and the Evening Ferry misses the Train to Dublin by almost an hour). Note that the Train from Cardiff to Fishguard Harbour is a direct service on the Sunday and and connects into the afternoon Ferry to Rosslare. (In fact there are only two services a day to Fishguard Harbour. Both services are primarily for connection to the Ferry service). Stena operate the Fishguard service so you could well be able to change your ticket without penalty.
