P&O Irish Sea

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.

  • "Liverpool to Dublin overnight "

    This is the 2nd year we have taken the overnight ferry as it works well with our travel plans. Great value, good food, comfortable beds and has always departed and arrived on time. A great way to start our holiday - arrive in Dublin early, refreshed and ready for a great day

    An efficient punctual service. The catering facilities were adequate. The toilets were clean. There was enough seating despite the return journey being busy. There was a small shop on board selling toiletries, cosmetics, chocolate and souvenirs.
