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.

    Good crossing
    • Generally the experience was good, my main criticism would be that there isn't a huge choice of food for a vegetarian or vegan. Having some salad options would be a good addition. Other than that had an enjoyable ferry ride and would definitely do it again.

    Quiet, smooth, trouble-free journey
    • Very comfortable smooth journey. Very quiet so no delays boarding or disembarking and plenty of space. Paid extra to go in lounge with reclining seats Had the place to myself! My seat had no blanket though so borrowed one from another chair. Didn't avail of on-board catering so can't comment.

    Helpful staff
    • Amazed at how quick and convenient it was to get booked in, on return from Belfast I discovered I had got the time of my ferry wrong, I missed it. The staff were very helpful in rearranging the next ferry, felt foolish, but no problem, all was ok, thoroughly enjoyable trip both ways. Why did I miss it I read the arrival time at Cairnryan and not the departure time oops.
