It's great to sit at the computer and watch the fast ferry from Larne sail back into Troon for the new 2014 season.The P&O Express fastcraft takes only two hours to speed you across the sea to Troon from Norther ireland and has long been popular for golfers and short breakers alike and 2014 offers some wonderful reasons for visiting the Ayrshire coast again.
The 2-hour Larne to Troon service operates between March and October, and with Troon only 35 minutes from Glasgow and Edinburgh not much further, whether you take the high road or the low road you can be certain to be at your destination, 'afore the rest'!
Travellers can simply ease back as soon as they step on board. Upgrades are available to Club Lounge where there is a further touch of luxury. New delights for 2014 delights include trolley service that means you won’t even need to leave your seat. Alternatively enjoy a delicious meal with a refreshed menu of locally sourced food, including Irish stew. Costa are new on board to offer you their finest coffee or for something with more kick there will be a new-look bar for a drink and snack.
