Budget Accommodation close to ferries, in town centre
Tracing its origins back to the middle ages, Larne is one of the most historic transit hubs in Ireland. Today, the Port of Larne is one of the busiest terminals of its kind in the country, handling in excess of 300,000 units of freight each year, in addition to 220,000 vehicles and almost 850,000 passengers. With ferry services departing 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it’s little wonder these docks have become an important centre for transit.
Planning a trip and departing from Larne? No matter whether you’re headed to nearby Troon and Cairnryan ferry port, or heading a little further afield, you’ll find plenty of first-rate facilities and amenities on offer here. What’s more, if you’re driving to the terminal from afar and need to rest your head ahead of an awkward departure point, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to hotels and guest accommodation in the region.
The terminal is located North of Belfast (22 miles or 25 minutes drive) in Northern Ireland on the stunning Antrim Coast which is one of the most beautiful & dramatic coastlines of the country.
Cheap Hotel and B&B rooms near docks (with Parking)
Larne is located on the east coast of County Antrim in Northern Ireland. This thriving market town has long operated as a seaport, with much of the urbanisation developed around the coast itself.
If you’re planning a departure from the ferry terminal for business or pleasure, you don’t need to stray far to find quality hotel accommodation at a price you’ll love.
Many of the hotels and b&b accommodation are on offer here are tailored toward the ferry traveller, so expect flexible check-ins, out of hours service and streamlined amenities befitting of those who only need to rest their head for a brief spell before packing up their bags again and moving on.
Although this ferry terminal is one of the most frequently used in Ireland, many passengers find themselves travelling a fair distance from across the country before stepping foot near the docks. If you’re having to drive across Ireland ahead of your trip across the sea, or would rather recharge your batteries before making the final leg of your journey, it makes sense to search for some quality accommodation in town.
Due to its relatively small size, you can stay pretty much anywhere in this picturesque seaport without worrying about a desperate dash to the docks ahead of your departure time. Find great rates on flexible rooms so you can save as much as possible for your trip, or search out hotels or a bed and breakfast with all the facilities you need to stay on top of work if you’re travelling on business.
If you’d rather keep your hotel budget as low as possible, you’ll find cheap rates on rooms in town, especially if you book ahead of time. Even if you’ve left it until the last minute, or had a ferry journey sprung on you for business, it’s not that hard to track down some incredible accommodation at prices that won’t break the bank. Consider venturing further afield for the best deals, with great prices on hotel rooms in points a little further into County Antrim, including the quaint parish of Islandmagee.
Several hotels and bed & breakfast accommodations can be found in Larne town centre. If you want to stay very close to the ferry port terminal, we can recommend you 4 star Curran Court Hotel. This is one the nearest properties from the docks.
More establishments can be found a short drive away in Carrickfergus town center, in Templepatrick and in or near Belfast city centre and ferries.
