Know Before You Go - Our Travel Tips
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 the Village Western.
The drive to the parc from both Roscoff and Cherbourg is very similar in length, so you can just pick the best sailing times for you. 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 can arrive late in the afternoon depending on the sailing date.
The town of Hourtin is situated due south of Royan, across the Gironde estuary. There is a regular car ferry crossing across the estuary from Royan to Le Verdon and this will shorten the drive time. The ferry crossing takes about 20 minutes and there are regular sailings throughout the day. The alternative route is to drive down to Bordeaux and approach the site from the south - this does add more than 100km to the distance driven, but it means you are not waiting for the Gironde ferry.
- Please note your accommodation on parc is available from 3pm on your day of arrival.
- France has introduced driving restrictions in Paris and some other cities; a Crit'Air sticker should be displayed or you may be fined. Click here for more details.
- Don't forget the time difference! Europe is 1 hour ahead of UK time.
- More time on the ferry or more time on the road? When comparing the different route options, do remember to allow for motorway tolls and fuel costs.
- Quick converter: 50 miles is just over 80km.
