Had a wonderful sailing last week over and back to Ireland. My daughter had a lovely treat on board having a facial. Booking in and getting on board with a disabled person was hassle free. I will book again with Stena line.

The whole crossing was a great experience. Well worth paying the little extra to use the stenaplus lounge.

Stena Lines does a good job with this ferry service, although boarding can be a little chaotic for foot passengers with people darting for best seating areas. Staff is great and did a particularly great job of helping my disabled Mum get on & off ship.

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.
