Troon Larne Ferry reviews

  • "A little late, but comfortable"

    The Express had some engine troubles and ran about 25 minutes late, but overall it was a good experience. The boat was clean, crew was helpful, food was fine and not unreasonable, and it was a smooth passage.

  • "Great Experience"

    First time my wife and have used the ferry to Ireland and it won't be our last. The crossing is obviously weather dependant however we were very comfortable on board and feel it was well worth paying the extra fee to use the Club Lounge.

  • "Troon very convenient from central Scotland"

    We tried the Troon ferry for the first time after previously using ferries to Ireland from Stranraer/Cairnryan. It is certainly much more convenient from the Scottish central belt, and takes a considerable time off the drive to the ferry port, while the crossing time is the same. There is only one ferry a day so you mustn't miss it! The crossing was smooth, and it was very easy to find a free seat. The only shame was that the exterior viewing area is tiny and dominated by smokers. (Photos from inside are not good due to sea spray on the windows.)

  • "Troon to Larne"

    On time, hassle free crossing. Staff were friendly and the cream scone and coffee went down a treat. I found no rubbish lying around as staff seemed to be on top of gathering up any rubbish.

Troon Guide

The Scottish town of Troon is located in South Ayrshire and lies on the Scottish west coast around 13 km to the north of Ayr and 5 km to the north west of Glasgow Prestwick International Airport. The Isle of Arran is visible from Troon across the Firth of Clyde. Troon is perhaps best known for its golf course, The Royal Troon Golf Course, and is one of the hosts of the Open Championship. The course hosts the tournament roughly every seven years. The town's development was helped by its port which was home to the Ailsa Shipbuilding Company which built many ships for customers around the world. The 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's harbour is one of the most sheltered in the west of Scotland and has good access roads and onward connections to the rest of the UK. Ferry services from the port depart to Belfast and Larne in Northern Ireland.

Larne Guide

Larne is a town and seaport located in Country Antrim in Northern Ireland and lies on the western side of a narrow inlet linking Larne Lough to the sea. A peninsular named Islandmagee is to the eastern side of the inlet and to the west is the ancient volcanic formation of Antrim Plateau which has lovely valleys that slope down to the sea to the north of Larne, in the Glens of Antrim.

The area around the town has been inhabited for over a thousand years and is believed to have been one of the earliest inhabited areas in Ireland. The early inhabitants are thought to have arrived in Ireland from Scotland via the North Channel. In the town's slightly more recent history, the Scots-Irish Bissett family built Olderfleet Castle at Curran Point in the 13th century and in 1315 Edward the Bruce of Scotland, who was Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland's brother, arrived in Larne with his army on his way to conquering Ireland. Edward saw Ireland as another front in the continuing war against England which was ruled by the Normans.
