Oscar Wilde

‘Ferry nice sight in Wicklow bay’

The ferry Oscar Wilde will be a regular sight in Wicklow bay for the foreseeable future as it works the Irish ferries Dublin – Cherbourg service, which began in early October. The ship normally works out of Rosslare.

The ship was built in 1986 at   Wartsila Marine Perno Shipyard in Turku, Finland for  Jahre Line  as MS Kronprins Harald, and was sold to Irish Ferries in 2007.

Irish Ferries are expected to take delivery of a brand new Ferry W.B Yeats from a German yard in the near future to work the French route from Dublin. Once in service its likely Oscar Wilde will return to Rosslare.

But for now we will enjoy the sight of a ferry passing through the bay every couple of days.
