Following a brief return to service earlier in the month for the early May Bank Holiday, the 'Scenic Lough Foyle Ferry' is to return on the 11th of May for an extended summer season, though a full 7 days a week service will not run until the 25th of May.
Frazer Ferries AISLING GABRIELLE has arrived at the New Ross boatyard on the River Barrow for dry-docking and annual maintenance. She has been temporarily replaced on the Scenic Carlingford Ferry service across Carlingford Lough by the smaller FRAZER MARINER.
UPDATE: as of 27/7/17 @ 16:30 the Scenic Carlingford Ferry will be operational again. Due to a problem with hydraulics, the recently launched Scenic Carlingford Ferry service has been suspended in order to allow repairs to take place. Work is continuing onboard FRAZER AISLING GABRIELLE so that the service can resume as soon as possible. The company are keeping customers updated via their Facebook page.
