Hotels in Cairnryan

This scenic Dumfries and Galloway village is an important ferry terminal and still provides regular ferry services to Northern Ireland's vibrant capital, Belfast. Cairnryan also overlooks the beautiful waters of Loch Ryan, and is a great base for exploring southwest Scotland's impressive rural coastline.

This secluded settlement, which has existed for more than 300 years, was also a strategic military port in the Second World War, when the area housed thousands of soldiers.

Places to visit in the area


Stranraer was once the site of a notable 14th-century battle in the Scottish Wars of Independence. Today it is a popular holiday destination, benefiting from a new Castle Square opened in the early 2010s. Visit the town's handsome 18th-century Old Town Hall and the Stranraer Museum, or see the 16th-century Castle of St. John with its unique L-plan tower.


Visit the charming coastal village of Portpatrick, which was originally a quiet fishing hamlet and is now best known for its annual Life Boat week celebration. Just to the south of the village are the ruins of the 12th-century Dunskey Castle, which is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument and offers wonderful views of the rocky coast.


For affordable, stylish accommodation in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, choose the Rhins of Galloway, just a mile from Cairnryan. For majestic accommodation with superb interior décor, you can also book a stay at the exquisite Glenapp Castle Hotel in the nearby coastal village of Ballantrae.


For delightful Scottish-themed cuisine, dine at the Merchants House and enjoy excellent hospitality. If you fancy some delicious Italian food, you can head a little further afield to Lando's Restaurant in Stranraer, which is still within easy reach of your Cairnryan hotels.
