Check­list

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - DESTINATION AFLOAT -

A one-way SailRail ad­vance-pur­chase fare from Vir­gin Trains costs £39 ($64), depart­ing Eus­ton sta­tion in Lon­don for the Welsh port town of Holy­head, and in­clud­ing the con­nect­ing ferry to Dublin Port. Un­der-16s are half-price; un­der-5s free. The fast-ferry op­tions are a lit­tle more ex­pen­sive, but nowhere near as sta­ble as Ulysses, and may be can­celled in rough weather. For a fee, the ticket can be ex­tended to take you be­yond Dublin via Ire­land’s rail net­work, and there are op­tions to book ferry pas­sage with Swedish com­peti­tor Stena Lines.
