Waterford’s Spraoi Festival, took place in the city over the August Bank holiday weekend and was supported once again by Irish Ferries.   Marie McCarthy (Passenger Sales Manager UK & Ireland) hosted travel industry colleagues, guests and Travelbiz.ie, to a VIP view of the parade and fireworks from the Penthouse Balcony of the Granville Hotel.   Now in its 25th year, Ireland’s oldest city hosted hundreds of performers, an array of street theatre entertainers and countless live music acts creating a three-day carnival atmosphere that is unique among Irish festivals.

As the official travel partner for the event, Irish Ferries assisted organisers in attracting participants from overseas by providing transport to all of the acts travelling to Waterford from Britain, France and further afield.

On the Irish Sea, Irish Ferries operates up to 16 daily crossings between Dublin Holyhead and Rosslare Pembroke.   On its French routes, the Oscar Wilde cruise ferry operates sailings from Rosslare to Cherbourg and Roscoff with the vessel Epsilon operating a weekend return sailing from Dublin to Cherbourg.
