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.

    Fast ferry to scotland
    • Good quick boat trip, ran out of cheese and ham toastys but other foods were still good. Good quick crossings, good service, staff were helpful and friendly. The price to bring the car is getting closer to flying over and hire car though.
