    Is there a website, similar to sky scanner but for ferries.
    Somewhere that I can view the options of where I can depart in a ferry from Ireland and all the destination options available?

    Direct Ferries website is handy enough

    Yes I checked that.
    I don't see anything much outside of going to UK or Cherbourg in France.
    Is there nothing that goes to the Nordic countries or Holland?

    I don't think any of the ports in Ireland have routes to Nordic Countries or Holland

    There are freight services from Immingham (Humber Estuary) in the U.K. to Gothenburg that also carry passengers and cars.

      Can you imagine how long such a ferry would take to get to its destination? You’d have to landbridge to the U.K. for Holland. Doubt there’s a Nordic ferry even from John o Groats.

      Yes, there's this big thing called Britain in the way. A lot quicker to drive across it than sail around it
