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.

    Easy Sailing
    • I recently took the Stena Ferry from Cairnryan to Belfast - what a great journey and good value for money. It beats the hassle you get an airport and no need to hire a car at the other end.
