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

    It was easier to book online than directly with PO Ferries
    • Cairnryan to Larne with P&O Irish Sea Ferries

      Re value for money, I cannot for the life of me understand why it is so unproportionally more expensive to make that short crossing in comparison to the much longer crossing Zeebrugge to Hull incl bunks, food, entertainmant, etc. AND that, as an onward journey with the same company, is not recognised as such and therefore cheaper in that respect. But aferry VERY easy to book and we hope to use you again. Thanks!

    Great cruise!
    • Belfast to Cairnryan with Stena Line

      We were so impressed with this ferry! It was really more of a cruise ship - something to entertain everyone, lots of comfortable seating options, attractive and clean.
