Getting Here by Sea

Regular, scheduled ferry services operate between Northern Ireland and Great Britain [Stranraer & Cairnryan in Scotland and Liverpool England] bringing both foot passengers, cars and other vehicles into the area through two ferry ports, Belfast and Larne.

There is also ferry service available from Wales via Dublin’s two ports, Dublin Port and Dun Laoghaire. Irish Ferries operate from Dublin Port to Holyhead, Wales and Stena Line's HSS (High Speed Sea Service) operates from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire.
