The cross border service provides vital infrastructure linking two of the world’s great coastal drives, the Causeway Coast and the Wild Atlantic Way.

The Wild Atlantic Way is a picturesque 2,500km coastal route, known for its outstanding natural beauty and rugged coastline. TheCauseway Coastal Route is a kaleidoscope of natural landscapes, imposing cliffs, bubbling mountain streams and gushing waterfalls, through the gorgeous Glens of Antrim towards the world famous Giant’s Causeway.

The Lough Foyle Ferry between Magilligan Point on the Causeway Coast and Greencastle on the Wild Atlantic Way began full service on Saturday, July 9th under the new management of Frazer Ferries.

The new operators have made a number of improvements to the service including:

- 20% price reduction on 2015 fares. Car prices are €12/£10 single and €16/£13 return.

- Continuous roll on/roll off shuttle service with non-stop sailings back and forth.

- Expanded hours for July and August. The first sailing will leave Greencastle at 7am Mon-

Sat and 9am on Sunday, running until the last sailing from Magilligan at 9.45pm.

The 15-minute sail replaces a 75-minute (45 mile/72km) drive from point to point and also significantly reduces driving time between Belfast/Dublin and Inishowen. The crossing is a destination in its own right with spectacular views of the Antrim cliffs, Binevenagh Mountain, the Inishowen hills and coastline and outlines of Rathlin Island and Scotland in the distance.
