Dublin Ferry Port

Hotels near Dublin Ferry Port, Swords, Ireland .

Dublin Ferry Port, also known simply as Dublin Port, is the biggest sea port in all of Ireland. Two-thirds of the country's port traffic travels through Dublin Port.

Located along the River Liffey, the port and the land surrounding it on the North Side of Dublin is worth approximately $44 billion USD. This port handles freight traffic, ferry service, and docking for cruise ships. The roll-on, roll-off ferry services provided by Dublin Port transports passengers across the Irish Sea to Wales, England, and the Isle of Man. Dublin Port is home to the largest car ferry in the world, the MV Ulysses, which can carry 2000 passengers.

The port was originally located a few miles from its current location, dating from medieval times. When international freight transport became popular, it moved to its current location, during the mid 1900s. Discussions have occurred about moving Dublin Port again, to the new Port of Drogheda facility proposed for Bremore near Balbriggan. Other discussion has occurred about turning Dublin Port into a “mini Manhattan,” in a radical redevelopment scheme.
