Belfast port facilities

Stena Line has recently opened its brand new Belfast Port complex. Facilities include a new terminal building, departure lounge with easier embarking access for foot passengers, a coffee bar, covered check-in area for car passengers, express boarding lane, ATM and a large car park.

Getting to Belfast
The Stena Line Belfast terminal is conveniently located close to the motorway network off Junction 1 of the M2 Motorway (Fortwilliam roundabout). The port is clearly signed 'Stena Line' on motorways and roads in the vicinity to help you find the terminal.
The Steam Packet Terminal can be reached via the M1. At the Broadway Roundabout take the 3rd exit onto the A12/Westlink, heading to the M2/M3, and continue to follow the A12 for 2.1 miles, then take the A2 and follow it for 0.7 miles, and you will see signs for the Port and the Steam Packet Terminal.
To compensate for the luck of public transport to the new Stena Line Terminal, black public hire taxis operate a taxi-share scheme from the terminal to the city centre.
Public transport, to and from the Steam Packet Terminal, are operated by Ulsterbus and Translink. These run a service between the Ferry Port, the Railway Station and the rest of Northern Ireland.
