Cairnryan Belfast Ferry reviews

  • "Really great experience"

    We travelled on late evening crossings between Cairnryan and Belfast. Arrival was fast, efficient and simple, with friendly and helpful staff. The ferry itself we really enjoyed, with plenty of chairs and space to relax and rest and the free cinema for my children. We would absolutely repeat this experience.

  • "Peasant journey"

    Stena made our trip to NI very much part of the holiday. The lounge facility is very good value since you get away before the lorries block the roads. The facilities are similar to airport business lounges with good drinks and snacks. A Menu for meals is also an option. Compared to P&O this is a much more pleasant experience with lots of good seats and room to move around within the lounge even with its own toilets. Full marks for managing the vehicles so all in all a great trip.

  • "Great"

    Loved it- short crossings, polite staff and quick and efficient at the ports. Shop was nice and there was plenty of seating. We left early as everyone arrived early for both crossings.
