Larne Port Ferry Overview
Located to the northeast of Belfast on the North Channel, the Port of Larne is Northern Ireland's busiest ferry port, handling close to one million passengers and 200,000 cars every year. The port operates the shortest sea route to mainland UK and is well connected to public transport networks.
Larne is a substantial seaport and industrial town on the east coast of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It has been used as a seaport for over 1,000 years, and is today a major passenger and freight roll-on roll-off port.
Ferries sail from the harbour to destinations including Cairnryan and Troon in Scotland, and Fleetwood in England.
Larne is connected to Belfast by the A8 road. The A2 road or 'Antrim coast road' which runs along the Antrim coast, and passes through the scenic Glens of Antrim, also serves the town. A train route to Belfast, via Whitehead and Carrickfergus, also connects Larne to the Northern Ireland Railways network.
