Justine A.20 April 2018 | 

The bus didn’t have a Power source which it said it would. Also there was no direction, I had never been on a coach/ferry to Dublin before and was very lost to be honest. The bus driver was a friendly guy though and drove with care

Good service

Maxwell W.12 November 2017 | 

Great staffing however their one bus(?) was delayed by an hour and a half, resulting in us missing the 2am ferry. The WiFi was not working on this 15 hour journey. Despite this, the driver was incredibly friendly and helpful, being the only positive part of the experience.

Valeria M.23 October 2017 | 

The lady at the check in counter in Victoria coach station was very rude and inconsiderate. She should not represent your company in any way. I work in customer service and she would be fired in a heart beat.

Sandra O.14 July 2017 | 

No plugs to charge phone, while we where sitting for a long period of hours
