Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport Leo Varadkar has welcomed a new ferry route into Ireland in a matter of weeks, after LD Ferries confirmed a weekly service from western France and northern Spain.

The LD Ferries service will connect Rosslare with St Nazaire on the west coast of France, and with Gijón in northern Spain.

“This is a very welcome announcement and provides a valuable new landbridge from France and Spain into Ireland. It’s the first service of its kind to Ireland, and it’s great news for our tourism industry.

“This is the second positive announcement of a new ferry service in a matter of weeks. Last November a new route from Cherbourg to Dublin was announced.

“We are already well serviced in terms of air access, but this new route will help us to grow ferry tourism into Ireland. Driving holidays encourage visitors to spend longer in Ireland and to explore more of the country. It’s very good news as we build on the success of The Gathering next year.”
