First time traveling by Ferry

FIRST TIME TRAVELLING BY FERRY TO LARNE?

Home to the spectacular Causeway Coastline, Northern Ireland is defined by its beauty. The best way to explore it all is by car, and travelling to Northern Ireland on a P&O ferry means you can bring yours with you. And with no luggage limits, you can even pack as much as you wish – which gives you the flexibility to tailor your holiday to your requirements.

Take your bike on board at no extra cost to explore coastal trails on two wheels. You can even bring your pet on board for peaceful walks along the sea.
