Getting to Larne

Translink offers bus and train services from the Port of Larne to various destinations.

The port of Larne is approximately a 25 minutes drive, North of Belfast. Take the M2 Motorway north staying in Lane 2 or 3 (of 5). After about a mile, you will pass under two fly-overs, which are an overhead interchange. Follow the motorway for a further 1/2 mile and you will notice that it appears to split into three.

To your left is a tight left turning slip road, to Greencastle; straight ahead are the two lanes of the M2 which actually turn to the left before rising uphill and the two lanes to the right become the M3 and follow the shoreline of Belfast Lough. It is crucial that at this point you are in lane 2 or 3.

Follow the motorway up the hill for about 3 miles (5km), and after it levels out, you will be aware of a slip road to your left which will take you to Larne via the A8(M). Leave the M2 at this point and on the off-slip get into the right hand lane as you are approaching a roundabout type junction. The fly-over above the roundabout is the Motorway so, take the next exit from the roundabout and travel uphill and then down to another roundabout.

Go straight ahead at this roundabout and follow this road until you reach Larne. As you reach Larne you will become aware of good sign posts towards the ferry port.

    A pleasant sea crossing on a clean vessel.
    • We crossed on a busy ferry but it was a pleasant experience and on time.

    Our experience
    • Good, overall. Gents toilets were not particularly clean, one was blocked and unusable, cafeteria had no decaf tea. But these are relatively minor criticisms, we had pleasant crossings both ways, with calm seas, and both ran to time.

    Well managed trip both ways.
    • Very busy outbound, less so inbound. We enjoyed the Club seats, but snacks were not very plentiful on our return trip. The internet did not work on the return journey.We DID NOT USE the catering facilities other than those in the Club, one star means NA.

    Enjoyable sail.
    • Overall a lovely sail, staff helpful but the food was a disgrace. £8.50 for a childs plate of chicken goujons (2), cold hard chips and cold vegetables. Thankfully we had our own packed lunch so nobody went hungry.

    Leisure trip
    • Travelled on a Premium ticket. Boarding and disembarkation quick and efficient. Disappointed with the Club Lounge accommodation which felt dated.
