Larne Harbour railway station, Larne, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, serves the ferry port for ferries to Cairnryan and Troon. There are also occasional sailings to Douglas, Isle of Man in conjunction with the Isle of Man TT. The route to Troon is a seasonal fast ferry route with two sailngs each way daily. Sailings to Cairnryan are operated by conventional ships and several crossings a day operate in each direction throughout the year.
The station co-exists with the passenger terminus for P&O Ferries ferries offering simple integration for foot passengers. However, this situation is not mirrored at the two Scottish termini of Cairnryan and Troon. P&O Irish Sea run a Fast Ferry HSC Express to Troon which is 25 minutes walk from Troon station.
The station was opened on 1 October 1862.
This station is the final outbound terminus for services on the Larne Line.
On Sundays the service to Great Victoria Street reduces to operating every two hours.
During weekdays the first train leaves here at 5:48am and the last train arrives at 12:20am.
