Hall PR’s Global Role

Side elevation of Irish Ferries proposed new €165.2 million cruise ferry

Representing Irish Ferries and its parent, Irish Continental Group plc., Hall PR has a global role, that being to serve an international community of broadcasters, news media and publications interested in staying abreast of the work being done by this very successful, multi-faceted Irish shipping, tourism and transport enterprise.

Latest initiative to attract worldwide media attention – requiring Hall PR to interface with journalists of various nationalities – is the news that Irish Ferries has commissioned yet another new cruise ferry, for delivery in 2020 – a vessel that, when completed, will be the largest of its kind in the world in terms of its vehicle carrying capacity.

Being built for service on the busy Dublin – Holyhead route (and due here two years after the current new-build W. B. Yeats arrives this Summer), the (estimated) 67,300 tonnes vessel will accommodate 1,800 passengers and crew. It will have 152 cabins and 5,610 freight lane metres with room for 330 trucks or 1,500 passenger cars.

Those who enjoy luxury transport can look forward to passenger facilities, spread over three decks that will include a superb choice of bars, á la carte and self-service restaurants and premium Club Class facilities with private access direct from the vehicle decks.

A choice of state-of-the-art entertainment options and cinemas, dedicated facilities for freight drivers, as well as many retail outlets will ensure that all passengers will be comfortable and engaged throughout their journey.
