  2. I Prefer To Travel By Rail … So Are There No More Sailings From Belfast to Stranraar Rail Terminal? Or Do You Only Cater Now, For Road Users? Buses Are Very Uncomfortable For Me As I am Disabled & I Need Leg Room …

    1. Hi Kieran. Unfortunately there are no sailings from Stranraar to Ireland anymore. All sailings moved to Cairnryan in 2012. There is now a bus service that connects Stanraar rail station with the Cairnryan ferry port, the journey time is just 10 minutes and should be fully disabled accessible.

    1. This particular ferry closed in 2012. But to get a price for any ferry just use the quote button as the price will depend on your time and day of travel and type of fare required.

  4. My daughter wants to meet in Belfast for weekend she’ll be coming via stranrar Belfast , but she has no passport is this gonna be a problem

    1. You don’t need a passport. British or Irish citizens travelling on Irish Sea routes do not need a passport to travel to Britain or Ireland but are advised to take a form of identity. A driving licence, citizenship card or utility bill will usually suffice. A birth certificate will provide adequate proof of identity for your child to travel.
