There are 14 ferries operating on the Irish Sea with a mixture of fast craft and the more traditional style super-ferries. The sailing time can be less than two hours from Holyhead and Stranraer but the Norfolk Line sailing from Liverpool Birkenhead docks to Dublin has become a popular overnight crossing leaving at 10pm and arriving at 6am.
