If you're living in Cork then the voyage couldn't be any handier on the 'Connemara'. Crossings will take 26 hours, with departures from Cork on Wednesdays and Fridays. The 'Connemara' will carry around 500 passengers with space for 195 cars, and the company expects a 50/50 split between passengers and freight carried. 

The ferry will bring you to Santander, a short drive from Bilbao and San Sebastian, and offers a gorgeous view of Spain for travelers wanting to drive.

The Ferry will begin sailing from April until the end of November 2018 and tickets will go on sale by the end of January.
