New ferry route from Cork to Spain revealed

BRITTANY Ferries today announced a new route from Cork into northern Spain.

Starting at the end of April, the service will link Cork and Santander, making two return-sailings a week.

It will be the first time there has ever been a ferry service linking Ireland and Spain.

A new ship will be chartered to serve the route and to deliver an additional weekly return-sailing from Cork to Roscoff.

“This is a significant move for Brittany Ferries, offering haulage companies a direct route to Spain and passengers a far greater range of holiday options from Cork,” said Hugh Bruton, general manager of Brittany Ferries Ireland.

“As a destination, Spain promises visitors a wealth of opportunities. It hosts sweeping sandy beaches, snow-covered mountains just an hour from the port, fabulous food and offers visitors a welcome as warm as the Spanish will receive when they join us in Ireland.” The ship will carry around 500 passengers with space for 195 cars.
