    I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Northern Ireland for my nephew's wedding. The staff were friendly and the timing was perfect. I would definitely recommend the Express P&O service Troon and Larne

  • "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.

  • "Leaving the ship at Troon as a foot passenger"

    At Troon as you know foot passengers have to leave the ship using the rear yellow stairway down to the car deck. When leaving the ship on Friday the upper landing as you leave the passenger accommodation area was extremely wet with a significant accumulation of surface water. The stairway was also extremely wet. I think this could pose a health and safety risk for some passengers and perhaps the crew should try and clear this water away using some form of absorbant matertial before foot passengers are allowed to leave the ship. Otherwise this is a great service with staff at Larne Troon and on the ship very friendly and helpful.

  • "Troon- Larne"

    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.
