  • "Excellent trip"

    It was such a pleasant and easy way to travel, apart from getting lost in Liverpool lol. Had a cabin which was brilliant which I went straight into and watched TV. Very comfortable night sleep, had shower and drove off. Both ways perfect except for one blip on return journey where the seat was missing from the cabin. But otherwise no complaints at all.

  • "Summer Trip"

    We were very impressed with the whole process. Getting on and off the ferry went smoothly. We had a delay coming home but we could sleep through so it didn't affect us. We had booked a cabin on both journeys and again standards were excellent. Staff were very friendly and efficient. We had to change our plans and again that was an easy process. I have recommended this to friends since returning home. Book early though to keep the cost down.

Belfast Guide

Belfast Harbour is a main hub in the importation and exportation of goods and for passenger ferry services. Operated by Stena Line, Belfast ferry port provides regular passenger ferry crossings to Cairnryan in Scotland and Liverpool Birkenhead in England. Run by Steam Packet, there are also seasonal services to Douglas on the Isle of Man, across the Irish Sea.

The city of Belfast, in Northern Ireland, is the capital city located in County Antrim, although parts of the city spread over to County Down. The city has a long tradition in the production of Irish linen, tobacco, rope and shipbuilding. In fact, the city's main shipbuilder, Harland and Wolf, is known for building the RMS Titanic in the early 20th Century. Today, Belfast is an important centre for commerce, the arts, higher education, law, business and of course, tourism.

Liverpool Birkenhead Guide

Birkenhead is part of the extensive Liverpool dock system, located on the Wirral Peninsular, on the west bank of the River Mersey estuary. Ferries to Liverpool Birkenhead arrive in the ultra-modern Twelve Quays Ferry Terminal from Belfast, a route operated by Stena Line, or from the Isle of Man, provided by Steam Packet.

The sea has played an important part in the town's history through its port and its tradition in shipbuilding. The town's design, which was influenced by William Laird and his son John, is similar to that of Edinburgh New Town's, with sections of Birkenhead laid out in a grid pattern.

This grid was based around Hamilton Square and was started in 1826, boasting the highest number of Grade I listed buildings than any other square in England after London’s Trafalgar Square. Other interesting attractions include the Town Hall, the Queensway Tunnel Main Entrance and the Woodside Ferry Terminal.
