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.
Cairnryan is a small village overlooking Lochryan and is notable today for its large modern ferry port, operated by P&O Irish Sea Ferries, which links Scotland with Larne ferry port in Northern Ireland. You can book ferries to Northern Ireland with AFerry.
