Passengers will return to Le Havre in 2023 on Brittany Ferries
Brittany Ferries has confirmed it will re-open its Rosslare to Le Havre service for passengers. The route had been run in freight-only mode, since the Covid crisis struck. But today – 20 December 2022 – tickets have gone on sale, for journeys taking place from 1 March 2023.
Passengers will travel on Brittany Ferries Cotentin. The ship has space for up to 114 passengers in well-appointed cabins. Cotentin hosts a self-service restaurant, bar and small shop. Up to 30 dogs can be accommodated on the route (travelling in vehicle).
“This is great news for travellers in Ireland and for Rosslare,” said Hugh Bruton, General Manager of Brittany Ferries in Ireland. “Once again, Brittany Ferries will connect travellers with three destinations in France and one in Spain – offering a variety of options and choice.”
“Le Havre is a fantastic destination in itself. It’s a Unesco World Heritage Site renowned for the towering St Joseph’s Church, famous gardens and a fantastic beach, which is one of its best kept secrets. But Le Havre is also gateway to the Seine Maritime region and the many treasures this area holds, such as the famous arch of Etretat.”
