With P&O Irish Sea Ferries, you can sail between England and the Republic of Ireland, and Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The brand name of P&O Irish Sea was created in 1998, which was used until 2010 when the company rebranded and changed its name back to P&O Ferries. In terms of routes, the seasonal Troon-Larne service uses the P&O Express fast craft, the year round Cairnryan-Larne service utilises cruise ferries, while the Liverpool-Dublin route is completed by conventional ships.
The business established its ferry services in the late 1960s, originally just operating in the North Sea and English Channel, but the world famous brand P&O Ferries we know today was founded in 2002, offering multiple routes all around the United Kingdom and Ireland. P&O Ferries’ ships have everything you would need to keep the whole family happy on the Irish Sea thanks to the well-equipped children’s entertainment areas and arcade rooms, for the slightly older kids. Also on-board are numerous shops selling discounted products and luxurious club lounges, ideal for the longer England-Ireland route.

Opted to travel as a foot passenger as P&O didn't double their prices, unlike StenaLine, for the Irish mid-term break. Was collected by a courtesy bus & driven onto the ship. Staff were very helpful, good humoured & attentive, even though they were understaffed. I'd recommend travelling with this company.

Despite the awful conditions the ship sailed. This was due to the recent storms. The crossing was smooth, staff helpful and the food was lovely. I would recommend this crossing all the time.

"Last min booking "
Outgoing & return, every encounter with a member of staff was first class. Polite, professional, booking agent on counter, two G4s staff, catering manager…I will stop there, this was a humble, respectful crew, regardless of their position.

"Disappointed with Direct Ferries "
As we couldn’t get booked directly with P&O we made our booking with direct ferries. Having paid €303 on Tuesday evening for a sailing on Thursday evening they then informed us on Wednesday that due to weather issues our booking was cancelled however on contacting P&O we found out that sailing was going ahead. As our ferry was within 48hrs direct ferries wouldn’t deal with our inquiries. However P&O were great as usual to deal with especially Adrienne in freight as our booking was car and passenger. They looked after us brilliantly start to finish. Thank you team P&O from directional staff on ground to purser and staff on board the “Norbank” . Not one bit happy with direct ferries. Thanks for taking time to read this.
