The Road Into Rosslare Europort
The Road Into Rosslare Europort
Rosslare Europort (Irish: Calafort Ros Láir) is a modern seaport, formerly called Rosslare Harbour, near the south eastern-most point of Ireland. It is the second most strategically important seaport in the State after Dublin. It is the second-busiest port in terms of ship visits and gross tonnage, and handles more unitised freight than any other Irish seaport except Dublin.

The harbour has four berths. Passenger ferries operate to and from Fishguard (Stena Line) and Pembroke Dock (Irish Ferries) in Wales, and to Cherbourg and Roscoff in France. The port also receives ships importing new cars into the country. The port area is largely on reclaimed land.
