Machrihanish is a little less 'end of the world' with new ferry to Northern Ireland
Ferry service Kintyre Express has been making runs between Campbeltown and the southwest town of Troon for several years, but now new service has been announced for 2011 between Campbeltown and Ballycastle, a small town on the northern coast of Ireland on the road towards Portrush.
The ferry crossing takes 90 minutes and will run four days a week between May 27th and September 26th. One-way tickets are 30 pounds, roundtrips are 55. Tickets between Campbeltown and Troon are 50 one-way, 80 roundtrip.
By using the ferry, your links golf tour could easily feature Machrihanish, Machrihanish Dunes, Royal Portrush, Portstewart and even Royal County Down (Ballycastle also has its own, more modest coastal course, too). Then you could fly home from Belfast or drive down to Shannon or Dublin Airport.
