Ferries to the Isle of Man from Dublin

Dublin ferry terminal lies six kilometres to the East of the city on the North bank of the River Liffey, and offers a 24-hour Waiting Room facility with vending machines for passengers should they require this.

In addition, the terminal has a passenger café and toilet facilities. Car drivers and motorcyclists must check in at the vehicle booth, and foot passengers inside the ferry terminal building.

Crossings between Dublin and the Isle of Man take just under three hours, and operate up to three times per week between April and September. The route is served by both the Manannan and the Ben-my-Chree.

Due to the infrequent number of taxis at the ferry terminal, it is advisable to pre-book this mode of transport prior to your arrival in the port.
