Rosslare Europort is one of Ireland's leading ports. As the key Irish Seaport on the Southern Corridor of the Irish Sea it serves a number of major shipping lines operating services between Rosslare and South Wales, and as the Irish port of choice on the Continental Direct Corridor it handles services between Rosslare and a variety of locations on the European mainland.
The entire Europort is bar-swept to 7.2m, allowing unrestricted access to vessels with draughts up to 6.5m.Rosslare Europort offers a comprehensive service (including mooring, stevedoring & passenger-car check-in) to RoRo shipping lines. It also provides facilities for dry bulk and general cargo, and development plans include LoLo and ConRo facilities.
The operating facilities of Rosslare Europort include three RoRo berths (including at 34m the widest linkspan in the State), a 100,000m2 storage area, common user terminal status and a full stevedoring service. It is open 363 days a year from 0300 hours to 2200 hours to meet the current requirements of customers, but can open at other times if required, or by arrangement. It has a proven efficient rolltrailer capability. The Europort has a fleet of Tugmaster units, fork-lift truck, tractors and other handling equipment to cater for non-standard RoRo freight. Rolltrailer-handling capabilities include cassettes.
