The Swansea to Cork ferry formerly linked Swansea in Wales with Ringaskiddy, just south of Cork, in Ireland. Carrying cars, freight, and foot passengers, the service was most recently operated (2010–2012) by Fastnet Line.

On 3 November 2011, Fastnet announced that all services would be cancelled until April 2012, owing to "higher than expected fuel prices". On 2 February 2012, it was revealed that the ferry service would be closed permanently.
