This page explains the basics on ferries at Christmas time. Enjoy the Q&A sheet we have set up for you with travelling at Christmas and Boxing Day time.
Are ferries operating?
Possibly, possibly not. You'll have to check in advance with the operator for that.
Are all the roads open?
Yes, roads will be open for people to get around. Unless you're at a MSA not many commercial premises will be open. The only reason you might need to travel is if you're going to meet with your family at a party.
Will the terminal be open?
If there is one and some of the ferries are operating they would normally open it with restricted facilities. For example at the Port of Larne terminal the toilets, check in and arcade will be open but Pinky's Cafe and the shop might not. Onboard the boats they may but please contact the operator for good advice.
