Stena Adventurer Met Bar

The Met Bar, located on the Stena Adventurer that operates between Dublin and Holyhead, reopened in 2012 after a €3.5m refurb of the ship. The modern bar offers a range of alcoholic and soft drinks and snacks as well as entertainment.

About the Bar

With a crossing between Ireland and north Wales taking 3 hours 15 minutes, you need something to help while away the hours, particularly if the sailing is a bumpy one. The Met is a spacious bar that offers a relaxing environment for passengers to enjoy a drink and entertainment. There are plenty of seats, both comfortable leather banquettes and high stools, and a big screen shows live sporting events when they are being broadcast on terrestrial TV.

Next to the bar is the Living Room, a separate room with large comfy chairs and free movies. With mini tables net to each chair, I’m sure you’d be able to take in your drink from the bar.

The Beer

Whilst the beer isn’t fantastic from a beer fan’s perspective, it is still varied enough to satisfy the vast majority of passengers that would use the ferry. The four keg beers on offer are Stella Artois 4%, Bass, Guinness and Budweiser. A selection of bottled beers is also available. The prices are reasonable, particularly as they have a captive market. Pints range from just under to just above £4 a pint.

With Thanks

I was able to visit and review this pub thanks to Stena Line, Discover Ireland and Paddy Wagon Tours who organised a trip as part of The Gathering, a year long series of events and festivals to celebrate Irish culture, history and genealogy. Their involvement had no bearing on the review.
