Cheap Ferry to Cairnryan Port

Cairnryan Port in south west Scotland is situated on the north side of Loch Ryan. The village of Cairnryan is closer to Northern Ireland than Stranraer which resulted in P&O Ferries investing in building a large, modern ferry port in the 1970s. P&O Irish Sea Ferries now provide services on the route to Larne Port in Northern Ireland.

Road links with Cairnryan Port are good and the village is accessible from the A77. Drivers coming from the south follow the M6/A74 to Gretna and then follow the signs from the A75. Coming from Ayr in the north follow the A77 Coast Road. There are no direct national bus and rail links to the port but local buses and taxis can be caught in Stranraer about five miles away.

The P&O Irish Sea ferries terminal at Cairnryan Port offers passengers good check-in facilities, a spacious reception and seating area, a baggage handling area, an area for children to play, disabled and baby changing facilities, a snack bar with a selection of dishes and a well-stocked convenience store.
