London to Ireland with megabus.com!
Megabus, in cooperation with the ferry operator - Irish Ferries, has just launched new route from London to Ireland. This is not a direct connection, such as pre-existing connections provided by Eurolines. The Megabus coaches will run from London to Pembroke Dock, with stops in Bristol, Cardiff, Newport, Swansea and Carmarthen. Upon arrival in Pembroke Dock, passengers will have to disembark from the vehicle and transfer to the Irish Ferries’s ferry, which runs from Pembroke Dock to Rosslare Europort only.
Unfortunately the downside of this connection is that it runs at times similar to the existing Eurolines’ connections. However, this is very good news, because that may force down prices in the future.
