Mostyn to Dublin was a short-lived P&O route, that operated between 2001 and 2004.

The route was closed as it was lossmaking, with low passenger numbers, perhaps because of the relatively poor road connections on the Flintshire side, which was coupled with dredging issues on the approach to Mostyn.

Following the closure of the route, P&O opted to concentrate sailings to Dublin from Liverpool.

Since closure, the port at Mostyn has been used principally in connection with the large scale wind energy farm that has been constructed off the coast.
