Press release   •   Oct 17, 2013 12:10 BST

LEADING ferry company, Stena Line has created a great-value bikers day-trip fare to Northern Ireland, starting at just £15 for a bike plus rider*.

Neil Palmer, Route Marketing Manager, Stena Line said:  “Northern Ireland has a long association with motorcycle events including world-famous races like the Ulster GP and the NW200 taking place there every year.  This means there are some truly exceptional road conditions for bikers and this Stena Line fare is the perfect opportunity to experience them for yourself.  You’ll be amazed at how much fun you can have and stunning countryside you can see in just one day.

“Biking breaks are all about adventure, excitement and the freedom of the open road.  They’re great ways to discover new places and meet new people and Northern Ireland offers plenty of opportunities to do both.”

Neil continued:  “The Superfast ships on the Cairnryan to Belfast route are the most luxurious on the Irish Sea offering maximum passenger comfort with the Pure Nordic Spa, the POD Lounge, The Living Room, Stena Plus Lounge and Taste restaurant so the fun starts as soon as you get onboard.”

Bikers can depart from Cairnryan at 0730am* (see website for other available times) and spend the day touring Northern Ireland taking in the fantastic countryside on some of the best biking roads in Europe.

Anyone wanting to extend their stay can do so with Stena Line’s great-value ‘one-night hotel break by motorcycle’ offer, featuring some amazing three and four start hotels from just £55 per person per night**.
