Travelling to Larne Ferry Terminal
Travelling by Car
The port of Larne is situated around a 25 minute drive, North of Belfast. Take the M2 Motorway north staying in Lane 2 or 3 (of 5). After about a mile, you will pass under two fly-overs, which are an overhead interchange, just follow the motorway for a further 1/2 mile and you will notice that it appears to split into three. To your left is a tight left turning slip road, to Greencastle; straight ahead are the two lanes of the M2 which actually turn to the left before rising uphill and the two lanes to the right become the M3 and follow the shoreline of Belfast Lough. It is crucial that at this point you are in lane 2 or 3.
Follow the motorway up the hill for about 3 miles (5km), and after it levels out, you will be aware of a slip road to your left which will take you to Larne via the A8(M). Leave the M2 at this point and on the off-slip get into the right hand lane as you are approaching a roundabout type junction. The fly-over above the roundabout is the Motorway so, take the next exit from the roundabout and travel uphill and then down to another roundabout. Go straight ahead at this roundabout and follow this road until you reach Larne. As you reach Larne follow signs towards the ferry port.
