Kintyre Express announces new service between Campbeltown and Ballycastle

Kintyre Express is to operate a new passenger ferry service between Campbeltown on the Kintyre Peninsula and Ballycastle in Northern Ireland.

Sailings will begin in May, offering golfers the option to easily extend their Ayrshire and Machrihanish golf vacations and include other world-renowned links golf courses, including Royal Portrush, Royal County Down and Portstewart.

Kintyre Express has been making speedy runs between Troon and Campbeltown for several years, connecting Machrihanish to Ayrshire and its celebrated courses at Troon, Turnberry and Prestwick. It will continue to provide service on that route. And now, with this new schedule of service to Ballycastle, golfers will be able to access even more of the U.K.’s top-ranked courses quickly, easily and enjoyably.

It’s a links golf lover’s dream come true. In one easily arranged golf holiday, golfers can now play in Ayrshire, travel across to tackle Machrihanish Dunes and Machrihanish Golf Club, and then continue on to play the legendary courses of Northern Ireland.

Services will operate four days a week (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday) from May 27th through September 26th, incorporating two return journeys each day on the 90-minute crossing. Additional journeys will be scheduled on demand.
