Stranraer to Larne was a route operated by both P&O and Sealink.

Prior to the construction of the new P&O port in Cairnryan, ferries for Ireland departed from Stranraer - see Cairnryan - Larne ferry for current sailing details.

Sealink/Stena Line also operated this route, but transferred operations to Belfast in 1995. NI Ferry newspaper article
