Hi We had a lovely trip on the Stena. The staff were polite. The seats were comfortable. The trip was enjoyable. The only busy part was when everyone was pushing a shoving to get down deck to the cars. The lift was overwhelmed and slow. People became very impatient. Thanks Deb

We booked this passage last minute having originally intended to fly because we were dreading the long journey time but in the event were very pleased with everything - the booking procedure, directions to the ferries, arrival and boarding, everything on board, roads and motorways with directions either side. We had a lovely holiday and the journey and services on the Ferry comprised a very positive part of that.

We used this ferry service to continue our UK tour. We booked with Stena Line online to traverse with our rental car. The tickets compete with clear instructions were received. The trip commenced on time and we enjoyed the facilities of the Stena Plus club for which we had paid extra. Recommend this service and ferry line.

Cairnryan is a linear settlement looking across the main A77 road to Loch Ryan. It was established as Lochryan by 1701 when Lochryan House was built at the northern end of today's village. The house was remodelled in the 1820s and the imposing structure just visible from the main road today was the result. During the Second World War, Cairnryan became No.2 Military Port, and three harbour piers and a military railway linking the village with nearby Stranraer were built by the army. Thousands of troops were based locally in military camps. At the end of the war the Atlantic U-Boat fleet surrendered in Loch Ryan and were anchored here before being towed to sea and sunk. Ship breaking became the main industry; the great British aircraft carriers Centaur, and most famously the Ark Royal were all sent here for decommissioning. As recently as 1990, Russian submarines have been dismantled here for scrap.
Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland.
The city is situated at the south-western end of Belfast Lough, a long natural inlet ideal for the shipping trade that made the city famous, and near the mouth of the River Lagan.
It is flanked by long stretches of hills, the Holywood Hills on the south and the Antrim Hills on the north. The city straddles the County Antrim and County Down boundary. The city recently gained the status of being the 2nd most popular city in the UK for short breaks.
