The station opened on 2 June 1890 and was simply known as Irvine. It closed between 1 January 1917 and 1 February 1919 due to wartime economy, and upon the grouping of the L&AR into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in 1923, the station was renamed Irvine Bank Street on 2 June 1924. The station closed to passengers on 28 July 1930, however the line continued to be used for freight trains until 1939.
Today part of the former station buildings are in use by the Irvine Times local newspaper.
