Added: 08/12/16 : 11:53:24

    A travel voucher towards a 2017 Summer holiday could be the perfect gift for those seeking an original idea to surprise families, friends or colleagues this Christmas, says Irish Ferries.

The company has opened its doors to bookings on its 2017 sailings to France, where EUR100 is all that is required to secure a reservation with the balance payable just six weeks before departure.

For families seeking a UK holiday destination next Summer, Irish Ferries has a number of bargain deals at a selection of popular UK Haven Holiday Parks, coupled with inclusive packages to fun-filled resorts like Alton Towers and Oakwood Theme Park in Pembrokeshire.

Meanwhile, in preparation for the high volume of passengers set to travel over Christmas and New Year, Irish Ferries has advised customers of its plans to reposition its vessels over the festive season to ensure that all of their customers on their busy Irish Sea routes are accommodated.

Irish Ferries planning to carry Ireland's Green Army

Irish Ferries extends its congratulations to both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland on their success in making it through to the finals of next year’s European Championship in France.

In anticipation of its role as lead carriers of Ireland’s green army, the company looks forward to welcoming supporters for both teams on its services to France.

Already the company is preparing to roll out the green carpet and to that end their own team is busy making plans to determine how fans can best be accommodated alongside the many thousands of Irish holidaymakers who would normally travel to France at that time.

Dermot Merrigan, Head of Passenger Sales for the company said; “There’s going to be an amazing atmosphere on board this summer as both sets of fans head over.  Sailings will book up very fast though, so whether you’re enjoying the football, the poolside with the family, or pitch side with the best fans in the world, my advice is to secure your booking as early as possible.”

Bookings can be made by calling 0818 300 400. For more information visit
