Destination: Roscoff

Roscoff is a charismatic, small fishing village in West Brittany, reachable by ferry from Plymouth, in South West England. This seaside resort is blended in around a small bay, with an array of little shops, bars, delightful seafood restaurants and 16th century granite houses hugging the stunning coastline and beautiful beaches.

As well as its coastline and beaches, the town's other top tourist attractions include its aquarium, thalassotherapy and Ile de Batz.

In Roscoff you'll find many elegant places to eat around the old port. You can relish the delicious French cuisine, including seafood such as nutty-flavoured mussels and traditional Breton crepes. You'll find very reasonable prices around. Enjoy a drink with sea views or take a boat trip to the Ile de Batz, with its impressive lighthouse and lovely gardens.

Enjoy the Notre Dame de Croatz Batz, a beautifully restored church that dominates the town's skyline and acts as a fantastic example of 16th century gothic architecture. Or the charming Ile de Batz with its impressive lighthouse and gardens.

Don't forget to checkout the Museum of the Onion Johnnie, setup to celebrate Britain's stereotypical image of the French; wearing stripy t-shirts and carrying onions on their bikes, after men of Roscoff sailed over to England to deliver their local goods until the 1930's.


The port of Cork is about 12 miles from the centre of Cork, located in Ringaskiddy. Cork has it's own train station offering nationwide connections. Passengers can get to the ferry port easily via bus or taxi once at the train station.
