Travelling by Ferry & Eurotunnel

Ferries are a relaxing and convenient way to travel. With a wide variety of ferries available from Ireland to France, taking your own car to the continent makes great sense, and don’t worry about driving abroad if it’s your first time – we can help you with our recommended ferry and driving routes to help you hit the open road en route to your parc.

Des Menhirs is ideally located in southern Brittany, around than two and a half hours drive from Roscoff.

Both Brittany Ferries and Irish Ferries sail into Roscoff. The overnight crossing with Brittany Ferries from Cork lands around breakfast time, while the Irish Ferries sailing from Rosslare normally lands a bit later (around mid morning).

Even better, Brittany is the only area in France where there are no motorway tolls to pay. Instead of motorways, the region is served by a network of fast and efficient dual carriageways (with a speed limit of 110km) resulting in easy, stress free driving.

Cherbourg is further from the parc, but at just under 380km, the drive is easily manageable if you land in the morning. 

Irish Ferries operate sailings from Rosslare and Dublin to Cherbourg. While Stena Line sail from Rosslare to Cherbourg. Please note while Irish Ferries normally arrive in Cherbourg mid/late morning, the Stena Line crossing from Rosslare can arrive late in the afternoon depending on the sailing date.

The fastest route from Cherbourg is to take the N13 towards Saint-Lô and then pick up the A84 down to Rennes, followed by the N24/N166 across to Vannes and the coast.
