First Brexit-bypass direct from Ireland to Brittany sails tonight

4th February 2021

Brittany Ferries’ new ‘Brexit-bypass’ service for Irish hauliers heading to Brittany, France gets underway tonight.

The first sailing takes place from Rosslare Harbour in County Wexford at 8pm this evening transporting Irish lorries and their drivers to the Brittany town of St Malo.

The ferry operator reports that space is available on board, and that hauliers wishing to book a space can do so by calling the company’s freight reservations office on +44 (0)330 159 5000.

The ferry links will be operated by Brittany Ferries’ 2009-built ship ‘Armorique’ (pictured), which usually takes holidaymakers from UK to France.

The new service includes routes from Rosslare and Cork, to St Malo and Roscoff in Brittany. These are the only ferry routes from Ireland to Brittany and there will be three round trips each week, with departures from Cork on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and from Rosslare on Thursdays.
