"Motorbike Tour in Ireland"
We took went on a motorbike tour around Ireland and decided to take the P&O Ferry to get from Scotland to Ireland. The Ferry has a good price, is quick (took 2hours), offers a range of food and beverages and has good seating. Our bikes had been taken good care of. They are getting secured by the crew. Overall a good experience. And we will take it again.

A punctual and pleasant service. Comfortable seating areas and courteous staff. Large windows for sea views. One point that I would love to see change in future design if possible: larger deck space. There is a special atmosphere with traditional deck where you have a broad horizon and the feeling of spaciousness. That said, the ferry does perform a speedy journey in comfort.

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 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.
