2018 sees the launch of a new crossing by Brittany Ferries from Cork to Santander.
Starting from the end of April there will be two direct sailings a week on the Connemara boat. This will be an 'economie' service - on board passengers can expect a comfortable, no-frills service with a distinctly Spanish theme. There will be a small shop and café-bar as well as passenger lounges. Interior and exterior en-suite cabins will be available with beds for up to four passengers.
Four-legged members of the family will also be accommodated thanks to a small allocation of pet-friendly cabins on the ship.
