Stena Line Update : Disruption at Cairnryan, Belfast & Holyhead Ports

Due to Storm Gareth there have been no departures on Cairnryan / Belfast service from Tuesday afternoon. The Ports at both Cairnryan and Belfast are congested and the roads leading to the ports queued with traffic.

Until operations resume and the backlog of traffic is cleared we will not be honouring any advance bookings for this service.

Please do not travel to the port until congestion cleared and normal conditions resume.


Holyhead Port is currently becoming heavily congested. The following controls for entry to the port have been put in place for the time being:

Only traffic holding a confirmed reservation will be allowed entry to the port.

Traffic holding a confirmed reservation will not be permitted access to the port more than 4 hours prior to scheduled sailing.

Standby/Waitlist traffic will not be permitted entry to the port until their booking is confirmed (standby/waitlist traffic can wait at the Truckstop in Holyhead while they seek a confirmed reservation).

Customers holding confirmed reservations are requested to update their details as soon as possible. If confirmed reservations are no longer required please cancel to avoid charges.
