From footloose holidays to package breaks – Brittany Ferries is like a guide – leading the way to each destination


The world’s most popular tourist destination is surrounded by three seas and one ocean. It ‘s therefore natural that our British, Spanish and Irish neighbours head to our shores to enjoy so the contrasting charms of each region, and the gastronomic, luxurious and elegant splendours of the “Cradle of Enlightenment”.


Begin the holiday with a luxury cruise, sample the Spanish way of life, and discover Spain’s unique wealth of art and history – this is what we mean when we say Une autre idée du voyage. Madrid, Barcelona, Santiago de Compostela - these are just a few examples of the Spain’s architectural hotspots. And Spain is also home to an infinite wealth of breath-taking scenery, from its mountains to its coasts. And no visitor can leave unmoved by the culture and traditions which are deep-rooted in the hearts of the Spanish people.


With a departure every Friday evening, from April to October, the Roscoff-Cork route is the shortest sea crossing from France to Ireland. The wild beauty of Kerry and Connemara, the wealth of outdoor activities, the dramatic spectacle of the Giant’s Causeway – all this is equaled only by the legendary warmth and hospitality of the Irish People.

Great Britain

The great seafaring nation, whose breath-taking coastlines are dotted with charming ports, is a natural port of call for Brittany Ferries. Our destinations experts know all the Kingdom’s sites and our customers appreciate not only the landscapes but also the legendary eccentricity, all of which leaves the feeling like they’re in another world.


London is a historic and architectural show piece, as well as an iconic place for shopping. Our specialists guide our customers towards the not-to-be-missed sites, as well as meeting all accommodation and dining needs.
