"Traveling to Ireland from the UK"

Our recent experience with Direct Ferries and the P&O Lines was very positive. Customer service was very good, from initial contact, through schedule revisions, reception gate personnel, to the on-board crew. We were treated with courtesy every step of the way. The ferry was clean and well maintained, very up-to-date. We felt safe at all times. The ferry departed and arrived on time, on schedule. What more can you ask?

Booking one car and four passengers was made easy using the online system and at a fair price. The ferry crossing was a pleasant experience with everything we needed available on the ship, food drink and a relaxing atmosphere.

Excellent journeys ... Staff help wonderful. I am disabled and was well directed to a close door where I was met by a young man with a wheelchair. It could not have been more convenient and appreciated on the help.

Troon is a town located in South Ayrshire in Scotland. The town lies on the west coast of Scotland and is around 13 km to the north of Ayr and 5 km to the north west of Glasgow Prestwick International Airport. Visible from the town, across the Firth of Clyde, is the Isle of Arran. Troon is famous for its Royal Troon golf course, one of the hosts to the Open Golf Championship. The course is chosen to host this annual event roughly every seven years. Troon Harbour played an important role in the development of the town for many years. It was home to the Ailsa Shipbuilding Company, which constructed many vessels for worldwide customers but mainly small passenger and various merchant vessels. T he fishing fleet from Ayr moved to Troon Harbour and a revitalisation of the abandoned section of the harbour started. An approach road was constructed to connect to a P&O terminal which operates a service to Ireland.
Troon has one of West Scotland's most sheltered harbours and its infrastructure is efficient, having a trunk road system which connects the port to Scottish and English motorways. Amenities in the Seacat Ferry Terminal include drinks vending machines and snacks, as well as a vast comfortable departure lounge. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Belfast and Larne in Northern Ireland.
The town and sea port of Larne is located in County Antrim in Northern Ireland. Larne sits on the western side of a narrow inlet that links Larne Lough to the sea. On the eastern side of the inlet is a peninsula called Islandmagee. To the west of Larne is the ancient volcanic formation of Antrim Plateau, with its glaciated valleys scenically sweeping down to the sea the to the north of Larne in what are known as the Glens of Antrim.
The coastal area around Larne has been inhabited for millennia, and it thought to have been one of the earliest inhabited areas of Ireland, with these early human populations believed to have arrived from Scotland via the North Channel. In the 13th Century the Scots-Irish Bissett family built Olderfleet Castle at Curran Point. In 1315 Edward the Bruce of Scotland (brother of Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland) landed at Larne with his 6,000 strong army en route to conquer Ireland, where Olderfleet Castle was of strategic importance. Edward saw Ireland as another front in the ongoing war against Norman England.
Ferries sail from the harbour to Cairnryan and Troon in Scotland.
