  • "Smooth passage"

    I like to spend my time on deck and would prefer a bit more space available for passengers. Otherwise I can see nothing to complain about. I did not sample the food so can't comment on that.

  • "To Ireland with no hitch"

    It was nice to relax and put our feet up after a long slog up the M62 and then the M6, a nice pint of Guinness and fish and chips went down well and we were fit to motor on before the boat docked at Larne, Thanks to all the crew and staff. Well done.

  • "very enjoyable wirh P &O Ferries"

    I really enjoyed the experience using P & O . The staff was very helpful, the ship was very tidy and clean and ship left on the correct times stated. Also it was a bonus that I could take my dog which alot of ferries wont allow or it takes a longer route. I will be using this route many times because my other half lives in Ireland.. Well pleased with P & O ferries.thank you directferries.

  • "Excellent Service"

    We always use P & O on our annual visits to Northern Ireland, and are always highly satisfied with our trips. Because P & O travel to the port of Larne, it is much more convenient for where we stay than going into Belfast - I also believe that it is a faster crossing - 2hrs instead of 3.

  • "Cairnryan-Larne ferry return crossing"

    A very pleasant experience with comfortable window seats in the bar so we could see where we were going . Efficient boarding, ferry on time both ways. The only criticism would be for the rather stodgy cakes offered in the bar. We would certainly use this crossing again.

  • "Good crossing"

    We used the bar for a snack and coffee and to sit. Although not particularly noisey on the crossing to Larne the return trip was a different matter; with 3 children screaming it became unpleasant in the bar and as the parents were obviously not prepared to take them to the play area we had to move. Thank goodness it's a short crossing, for this reason and being term time I had not booked the quiet lounge.

    Travelled from Cairnryan to Larne and back for 1st Northern Ireland visit and was mainly impressed. The only minus point was lack of gluten free food available in coffee shop. Luckily I had something with me.
