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.

    Break in Scotland.
    • Although in both journeys the weather played a large part in a rough passage in both directions,service was second to none.My wife requires a wheelchair and we were sent to park immediately beside the lift on both journeys.Both crossings were pretty quiet,passenger-wise so it was pretty plain sailing,apart from the weather.Would use again,no problems.
