Looked at the idea a few times (and to Eire).
Bloody sight more expensive than crossing the channel.
Pal booked the cheapest crossing last year, from Mostyn (on the Dee).
Arrived an hour before sailing time to be greeted by an empty dock. The
skipper had decided that the tide and weather were right so off he went..
Pal then had to drive to Holyhead.

Yes had wondered if it would be expensive.
(Think chanel tunnel, keeps the prices down on the ferries with
competition.)

Sounds like the ferry of your friend was Irish, sorry just jokeing.
