A weekend in Irvine: Top things to do

Museums and art

The Scottish Maritime Museum has a varied collection of maritime artefacts, ships and shipbuilding machinery.

Scotland’s best known poet Robert Burns spent time in Irvine, and the Irvine Burns Club celebrates his life. The club showcases a number of exhibits and paintings associated with Burns, as well as an extensive library that includes many rare editions of his works.

The Harbour Arts Centre, meanwhile, hosts a varied programme of art exhibitions throughout the year.

Golf

Irvine is a great place for golfers with four clubs: Dundonald Links, Western Gailes Golf Club, Gailes Links and the Irvine Golf Club. The Dundonald Links is particularly challenging for both novice and seasoned golfers.

Outdoors

Irvine Harbour was once Scotland’s third largest port and, along with its nearby beach, is a great place for walkers.

Also, Eglington Country Park is a beautiful park with many paths and bridleways to wander along.

Entertainment

The Harbour Arts Centre puts on a variety of events, including popular music, jazz and children’s entertainment.

Eating and drinking

For a traditional pub atmosphere, try the Ship Inn.

Duncan’s Bar and Bistro serves good food and drink, with special events including live music and Mexican weekends.

The Small Talk Coffee shop serves homemade food and delicious coffee in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

For the best in European cuisine with a mix of Asian flavours, eat at the Hallmark Hotel Irvine

Relax

After a busy day in Irvine, the Hallmark Hotel Irvine’s bar and lounges, followed by a restful night’s sleep in one of the hotel’s comfortable beds, is sure to be just the ticket.
