About Cairnryan

Cairnryan port has been of vital importance in maritime history. Being closer by sea to Northern Ireland than Stranraer, the attractions of Cairnryan as a ferry port led to the building by P&O ferries of a roll-on roll-off terminus here in the 1970s, offering a shorter ferry crossing to Larne ferry port.

Cairnryan Port

Cairnryan is a small village overlooking Lochryan and is notable today for its large modern ferry port, operated by P&O Irish Sea Ferries, which links Scotland with Larne ferry port in Northern Ireland. You can book ferries to Northern Ireland with

    Travelling with young children
    • Cairnryan to Belfast with Stena Line

      Loads better than the 8 hour crossing from Birkenhead when travelling with young children. Clean vessel and boarding and unboarding very good.

    Easy Travel.
    • Cairnryan to Larne with P&O Irish Sea Ferries

      Travelling to Ireland to spend time with family, I chose the Cairnryan to Larne route for cost and convenience. The check in process was quick and painless, the journey calm and the ferry wasn't full. Staff were helpful and friendly and the meals excellent. A very pleasant experience all round.

    So easy
    • Belfast to Cairnryan with Stena Line

      We have travelled between Scotland and Ireland several times over two holidays and always found staff friendly and helpful. On board facilities are great, super easy to travel with our car. Will definitely be travelling again on our next visit
