P&O Irish Sea

With P&O Irish Sea Ferries, you can sail between England and the Republic of Ireland, and Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The brand name of P&O Irish Sea was created in 1998, which was used until 2010 when the company rebranded and changed its name back to P&O Ferries. In terms of routes, the seasonal Troon-Larne service uses the P&O Express fast craft, the year round Cairnryan-Larne service utilises cruise ferries, while the Liverpool-Dublin route is completed by conventional ships.

The business established its ferry services in the late 1960s, originally just operating in the North Sea and English Channel, but the world famous brand P&O Ferries we know today was founded in 2002, offering multiple routes all around the United Kingdom and Ireland. P&O Ferries’ ships have everything you would need to keep the whole family happy on the Irish Sea thanks to the well-equipped children’s entertainment areas and arcade rooms, for the slightly older kids. Also on-board are numerous shops selling discounted products and luxurious club lounges, ideal for the longer England-Ireland route.

P&O Irish Sea Customer Reviews

  • "Safe no hassle trip"

    Couldn't really fault the trip. Easy check in both ways, friendly staff, arrived on time.  Meal service was excellent.  Could have done with a snack machine in-between meals as we hadn't taken any provisions. Slamming door by the room meant interupted sleep throughout the journey.  Would use again but pick a different room.

  • "Not given updated information"

    Travelled with P&O via Direct Ferries on arriving at Cairnryan for a 11am sailing we were informed that the sailing was not happening and we would be on the 12 midday sailing, Direct Ferries didn't update us with the information , we were informed that P & O had advised them to inform all customers but this didn't happen apart from that the outward sailing was fine, return journey was delayed due to a problem with the ferry but were fully updated at the port.

  • "Tragedy for loyal staff"

    The staff were excellent and professional. Many I noticed went the extra mile and the captain on both ships great communicators. Tragically they may have list their jobs through the greed of the ships owners. I certainly do not plan to travel with p&o if at all possible for future journeys. Better to pay a little more and have staff appreciated. A sad day
