PLANNING YOUR ROAD TRIP TO IRELAND
Travelling to Ireland with your car
Travelling to Ireland with your car couldn’t be easier when you take the ferry across the Irish Sea from Cairnryan to Larne with us.
Whether you bring your own car on the ferry with you or you decide to hire one once you arrive, you’re bound to enjoy your road trip to Ireland with the added freedom that exploring with a car affords you. If you are planning on bringing your own car with you to save the expense and hassle of hiring one once you arrive, then we’ve got lots of pointers to help you with getting to the port and travelling to Ireland by car. If you’re completely new to ferries then not to worry, we’ve got lots of helpful advice for first time ferry travel too!
We want to make sure that your trip with P&O Ferries runs as smoothly as possible so that you can truly relax and enjoy a completely stress-free holiday. Before you start booking anything, it might be a good idea for you to have a look at the available sailing times for our Cairnryan to Larne route, as well as the variety of different ticket types that we have to offer, allowing you to tailor your trip to your exact needs and budget requirements. If you’re interested in visiting Northern Ireland for a short break instead, perhaps you might be interested in our Liverpool to Dublin route. However, unfortunately we do not allow pets on this route, so if you’re planning on bringing your furry friend along for the ride, then you’ll need to be travelling on our Cairnryan to Larne route.
