Ferries from Larne to Cairnryan In Scotland
While crossings between Britain and Ireland remain open, the main focus is on routes which play a critical role in the supply chain, as well as maintaining links for key workers. All operators have implemented several precautionary safety measures to ensure a safe and comfortable journey for all.
The Larne to Cairnryan ferry is operated by P&O Ferries. The service connects the east of Northern Ireland with the south west of Scotland. There are up seven sailing each day which gets you to Scotland in just 2 hours. In the summer months the express service also operates making your journey time even shorter.
The ferry route is served by three ships. The European Causeway and The European Highlander carry out the majority of the crossings and the journey will take 2 hours on these ships. The final vessel serving this Northern Ireland to Scotland route is the P&O Express fastcraft which takes just over an hour to speed you across the sea between Larne and Cairnryan.
