About W.B. Yeats
W.B. YEATS is an Irish Ferries ferry which was completed in late 2018 and entered service during January 2019. She is named after the Irish poet William Butler Yeats (1865 – 1939), a name chosen after a public competition. Although she was designed primarily for the Dublin to Cherbourg service, W.B. YEATS has spent the first few months of her operational life on the shorter Dublin to Holyhead route. From mid-March 2019 she joined the French route, swapping places with the Visentini Ro-Pax EPSILON until the autumn when the ships will swap back over.
The passenger facilities on W.B. YEATS are spread over decks 8 to 11, with the public facilities all housed on deck 10 and 11. Cabin accommodation is spread out over decks 8, 9, and 10. There is a copy of the official deck plan further down this page.
This feature is broken up with a separate page for each area to aid navigation and can be navigated either using the menu near the top of the pages or the next/previous links at the bottom of each page. Due to the number of images used in this
