Brittany Ferries’ enhanced “Brexit-busting” Ireland – France services begin tonight, 4 February, when the ARMORIQUE departs Rosslare for St Malo at 2000.

The vessel is due to arrive at Rosslare for the first time around 1600 today. ARMORIQUE had sailed early Wednesday from her lay-up at Le Havre to Ouistreham (Caen) to pick up crew and stores before departing in the afternoon for Ireland.

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 full schedule for the new services is as follows;

Timetables are subject to weekly variation and change at short notice

The freight services from Rosslare and Cork are Ireland’s only direct services to Brittany, potentially saving hauliers many additional miles when heading to Western regions of France. This has become increasingly important in the post-Brexit era.
