Ferries to Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is the smallest of the four countries that make up Great Britain, and is situated in the north east corner of the island of Ireland.

Considering its size, the variety on offer in Northern Ireland is quite amazing, from undulating countryside and breath taking mountains, intriguing towns and villages to some of the most vibrant, culturally rich and historical cities. Northern Ireland is one of those destinations that not only promises, but delivers.

Northern Ireland's size makes the country simple to navigate too which means it’s easy to visit the country's best attractions. There are of course many must-see places and sites including the Giant's Causeway, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, the historic walled city of Londonderry, and aside from the usual attractions of a country’s capital city, Belfast is also the home of Titanic Belfast, the world's largest Titanic visitor experience.

Northern Ireland features excellent fast ferry links from England and Scotland with ferries sailing to the major ports at Larne and Belfast. If you want to travel from continental Europe to Northern Ireland then you can sail from France to Ireland and drive across the border.

Northern Ireland reviews

  • "Economical"

    Opted to travel as a foot passenger as P&O didn't double their prices, unlike StenaLine, for the Irish mid-term break. Was collected by a courtesy bus & driven onto the ship. Staff were very helpful, good humoured & attentive, even though they were understaffed. I'd recommend travelling with this company.

  • "Adversity "

    Despite the awful conditions the ship sailed. This was due to the recent storms. The crossing was smooth, staff helpful and the food was lovely. I would recommend this crossing all the time.

  • "Last min booking "

    Outgoing & return, every encounter with a member of staff was first class. Polite, professional, booking agent on counter, two G4s staff, catering manager…I will stop there, this was a humble, respectful crew, regardless of their position.

  • "Disappointed with Direct Ferries "

    As we couldn’t get booked directly with P&O we made our booking with direct ferries. Having paid €303 on Tuesday evening for a sailing on Thursday evening they then informed us on Wednesday that due to weather issues our booking was cancelled however on contacting P&O we found out that sailing was going ahead. As our ferry was within 48hrs direct ferries wouldn’t deal with our inquiries. However P&O were great as usual to deal with especially Adrienne in freight as our booking was car and passenger. They looked after us brilliantly start to finish. Thank you team P&O from directional staff on ground to purser and staff on board the “Norbank” . Not one bit happy with direct ferries. Thanks for taking time to read this.
