Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines will be visiting Ireland on a record of 15 cruise itineraries throughout this year.

The company’s fleet of four smaller, more intimate ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – will be calling at a range of diverse destinations in northern and southern Ireland including Cork, Belfast, Dublin, Rosslare, Killybegs and Ringaskiddy.

Nathan Philpot, sales and marketing director for the line, said: “With more cruises to the 'Emerald Isle' than ever before there has never been a better time to uncover all that Ireland has to offer; explore historic cathedrals, climb to the top of the world's oldest working lighthouse, stroll along expansive golden beaches or visit a world-famous whiskey distillery.

“As an added bonus, we are making it even easier for those guests who do not have a passport or photo card driving licence to enjoy our in-depth 'Around UK & Ireland' cruise experience; they will be able to visit all the UK and Irish towns and cities that our smaller-sized ships can access, with an alternative accredited form of photo identification."

Balmoral's seven-night 'Easter Ireland' cruise, departing on March 27, costs from £699 per person, while Boudicca's seven-night 'Cruising the Emerald Isle' - on May 30 – leads in at £769 and both are included in the company’s 'Turn of Year' campaign, where guests can choose between two offers: 'Three cruises for the price of two' or 'free tips & tipples' when booked before March 2.

On a selection of cruises, guests can also benefit from up to £100 per person cash back when booked by January 31.
