Irish Ferries Ferry to Drydock in Belfast This Week

Irish Ferries ISLE OF INISHMORE is to have a brief drydocking in Belfast this week. It had originally been planned that she would go for a scrubber installation at Remontowa, but with ULYSSES’ installation taking much longer than expected it appears this has been postponed.

ULYSSES arrived back in Dublin last night and is currently expected back in service tonight. ISLE OF INISHMORE should be released from her Rosslare – Pembroke route by W.B YEATS later. The latter is already at Rosslare having left Dublin this morning.  With ULYSSES not quite ready to enter service, this meant this mornings 08:05 sailing to Holyhead was cancelled, as well as the afternoon return trip.

STENA FORETELLER remains on charter to Irish Ferries and will continue as second ship on the Dublin – Holyhead route this week.  ULYSSES return last night was the first time the ship had been in Dublin since January, when she left for the installation of exhaust gas scrubbers in Poland.
