About France

France is one of the most popular holiday spots in the world. Whether you're a devoted Francophile or not, it's a great spot to go on holiday with something for everyone. Popular destinations include the city of Paris, the sunny south coast and the beautiful landscapes of Brittany and Normandy. French cuisine is also simply stunning, with a whole variety of fresh breads, wines, sea foods and desserts.

It's not just the food that brings people to France, either. World famous sights like the Eiffel tower - one of the most iconic structures in the World - bring tourists from far and wide, while the French alps are popular with keen skiers.

And of course taking the car to France brings many advantages - no need to hire when you arrive and of course the ability to bring back as much wine, beer and food as you can. Book now with AFerry to save money on your Ireland-France ferry today.
