Passengers will face further travel disruption this summer as Irish Ferries owner, ICG, announce repairs to the vessel, Ulysses, will keep the ship out of action for another two weeks.

It went in for examination and repairs on June 28th with the expectation that it would be in service again by July 4th.

According to the Irish Times, the company reported in a stock exchange update that "the issue is more serious than originally anticipated".

The service engineers said it was likely the vessel will not be on the water again for another two weeks.

“In advance of her return to service, we will adjust the schedules of our other vessels to minimise the disruption to our customers as much as possible.

“The Dublin/Holyhead route will operate with the Epsilon on the Ulysses schedule alongside the Dublin Swift, which will operate additional evening sailings.

On Twitter, the company announced it was receiving a high amount of calls from passengers and were working hard to get through them all.

This isn't the first disruption that Irish Ferries Passengers have seen this year.

Thousands of holidaymakers had their bookings cancelled when the delivery of a new ship, the WB Yeats, was delayed twice.
