We traveled Premium Class on the Stena ferry and found it very comfortable and quiet and wouldn't hesitate to travel with the same company again.

We upgraded to Stena Club Lounge for the crossing, both ways, and it was comfortable, civilised, and restful, with free coffee, biscuits and fruit available all the time, together with newspapers (and white wine if you want it). A good Wi-Fi connection is also available for free, and overall this crossing represents great value, especially if you just want to relax and unwind.

The Scottish village of Cairnryan is located in Dumfries and Galloway and lies on the eastern shore of Loch Ryan. The village can trace its origins back to 1701 when it was established for workers employed on the Lochryan Estate which features a deer park and bowling green. facilities in the village include the Lochryan Hotel, a few guest houses and bed and breakfast establishments, a caravan site built on the site of an old war camp site, a village shop and a restaurant, The Merchant's House Restaurant.
The village is important in maritime history, with a ferry service connecting Scotland and Northern Ireland. The village has two ferry terminals connecting Scotland to Northern Ireland. The first opened in 1973, originally operated by Townsend Thoresen and now by P&O Ferries links Scotland with the port of Larne. The second at Old House Point is operated by Stena Line linking to the Port of Belfast in Belfast.
The city of Belfast is located in Country Antrim in Northern Ireland, although parts of the East and South Belfast are located in County Down. Belfast is also Northern Ireland's capital city. Sitting at the mouth of the River Lagan where it becomes a deep and sheltered lough, Belfast is surrounded by mountains that create a micro climate conducive to horticulture. From the Victorian Botanic Gardens in the heart of the city to the heights of Cave Hill Country Park, the great expanse of Lagan Valley Regional Park to Colin Glen, Belfast contains an abundance of parkland and forest parks. Parks and Gardens are an integral part of Belfast's heritage, and home to an abundance of wildlife and popular places for a picnic, a stroll or a jog. Numerous events take place throughout including festivals such as Rose Week and special activities such as bird watching evenings and great beast hunts. The architectural style of Belfast's buildings range from Edwardian, like the City Hall, to modern, like Waterfront Hall. Many of the city's Victorian landmarks, including the main Lanyon Building at Queen's University Belfast and the Linenhall Library, were designed by Sir Charles Lanyon.
From the city's port, ferry services depart to Cairnryan in Scotland, Liverpool in England and to Douglas on the Isle of Man.
