THE 2019 Stena Line Dublin Horse Show, the 146th staging of the world-famous equestrian celebration, promises to be yet another landmark event in Ireland’s rich cultural heritage.
2018 was Stena Line’s first association with the iconic Dublin Horse Show and it proved to be a very successful one in terms of engagement with a range of new audiences and communities across Ireland and Britain. This year Stena Line is also the Official Ferry Partner of the 2019 Stena Line Dublin Horse Show which further underscores its position as Ireland’s leading ferry company.
2019 is a very important year for Stena Line in Ireland as it prepares the way for the launch of its new Stena Estrid vessel, the first of its new generation state-of-the-art E-Flexer ferries currently being built in China. The first vessel will be deployed on Stena Line’s Dublin - Holyhead route in early 2020.
The three new E-Flexer vessels currently under construction represent a significant multi-million pound investment by Stena Line in the Irish Sea region. After the Stena Estrid, sister vessel Stena Edda will be deployed on the Belfast to Liverpool route in spring 2020. The third ship will also be introduced on the Belfast to Liverpool route in 2021.
All three vessels will be larger than today’s standard RoPax vessels at 215 meters long with a freight capacity of 3,100 lane meters and the space to carry 120 cars and 1,000 passengers.
Sail in comfort
Stena Line sails from Dublin to Holyhead, Belfast to Cairnryan and Liverpool and operates the shortest route from Ireland to South Wales on the Rosslare – Fishguard route. Stena Line is also the only service that sails direct to France from Rosslare to Cherbourg.
