Cheap Ferries from Belfast to Heysham

Belfast, a large port city in Ireland, is a popular tourist destination, as well as an entry point for ferries and freights. It is the capital of Northern Ireland and a very busy gateway to the whole of Ireland. The ferry port is Ireland’s largest passenger and freight port. The most popular ferry, the Super Seacat Scotland, brings passengers from Northern Ireland across to Belfast.

The trip from mainland Scotland across to Belfast port is about four hours in duration and runs one or two times daily. The ferry service is provided by the Steam Packet Company which runs ferries in and out of the Port of Heysham to Belfast.

The Port of Heysham, opposite Belfast, remains open twenty four hours and services both passengers and freight for Northern Ireland. There are many facilities at the port including restaurants, cafés, bars, shops and newsagents. The ferries leaving from here are maintained to international safety standards and the service onboard is exceptional. Facilities for passengers with limited mobility, such as designated washrooms and wheelchair access points, can be found at the port as well as on board the ferry.

Belfast port accommodates more than two million passengers a year. The port offers snacks in the departure lounge located inside the passenger terminal. The Belfast terminal also has an ATM, as well as vending machines. Make sure you arrive with at least an hour to spare before boarding the ferry; slightly longer if you have a car.

The ferry is outfitted with a Motorist Terminal to accommodate those passengers traveling with a vehicle. Additionally, the Heysham port also provides a small café, Little Chef Express, for passengers who have cars to enjoy prior to boarding. The Super Seacat Scotland services from Belfast to Heysham twice daily taking approximately four hours for a one-way journey.
