This route is the ferry crossing that lands at Liverpool from Dublin. It is operated by P&O Irish Sea and Seatruck. British and Irish lines operated the route until 1988.

At Liverpool, P&O ferries dock in Gladstone Dock, which requires the ferry to enter through a pair of lock gates. The linkspan therefore does not have to cope with the tidal range normally associated with sea ports; however, the time taken to complete the crossing is longer as a result. The crossing is therefore popular with HGV drivers who can use it as a break.

The crossing time is around 8-8.5 hours.
