  • "Good journey - comfortable and on time"

    The ferry crossings between Northern Ireland and Cairnryan were on time and easy to use. The booking with Direct Ferries worked out well. We travelled with friends who booked the P&O Ferry through the ferry company. Ours via Direct Ferries was around 20% cheaper which is a large difference when we all travelled on the same ferries at the same time etc.
