recently crossed from Cairnryan to Larne return. Very easy. No hassle, clean boat. No nonsense. Staff friendly and helpful. Wifi was a bit dear at three pounds for just ninety minutes. Apart from that, I would Defoe use P and O again.

The whole experience travelling to and from NI on the European Highlander was very good. The crew were perfect in every way possible and thankfully, so was the state of the sea! I look forward to another trip in the near future.

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.
Larne is a town and seaport located in Country Antrim in Northern Ireland and lies on the western side of a narrow inlet linking Larne Lough to the sea. A peninsular named Islandmagee is to the eastern side of the inlet and to the west is the ancient volcanic formation of Antrim Plateau which has lovely valleys that slope down to the sea to the north of Larne, in the Glens of Antrim.
The area around the town has been inhabited for over a thousand years and is believed to have been one of the earliest inhabited areas in Ireland. The early inhabitants are thought to have arrived in Ireland from Scotland via the North Channel. In the town's slightly more recent history, the Scots-Irish Bissett family built Olderfleet Castle at Curran Point in the 13th century and in 1315 Edward the Bruce of Scotland, who was Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland's brother, arrived in Larne with his army on his way to conquering Ireland. Edward saw Ireland as another front in the continuing war against England which was ruled by the Normans.
