    • “what an amazing apartment, right on the harbour front in Irvine. it had everything you need for a comfortable stay. the only problem i had was the bed. at 4ft 6in it was too small. i am used to a king size bed. especially in summer when it is hot. apart from that i would definitely stay here again”

    • “This was such excellent value for money and so much nicer and roomier than we had expected.Spotlessly clean, nice decor etc. Local amenities were within easy reach, shops, restaurants etc. Nice view of the river.”

    • “Had a lovely garden area and was just as described. Great view when you walk out and see harbour. Cozy and great if you want to pack light since it has washer and dryer. Would like to say dont paralell park (is legal to though) and park across the way since our rental car was hit within first hour of paralell parking there. Still gem with many great sites in and around Irvine.”

    Ms Lamont, Banteer, July 2015

    • “Back at Riverview for the third year in a row. Had stunning views and an ideal location close to town, shops and the train station, not forgetting the marvellous Ship Inn. It has everything we could want, and more. Roll on next year for another visit.”

    Mrs Phillpotts, Basingstoke, February 2015

    • “The location was excellent. A lovely flat which was larger than expected, the high ceilings were beautiful. The bathroom was great - the shower was consistently hot, not interrupted by other water usage and the pressure was perfect.”

    Mrs Maw, CAMBRIDGE, September 2014

    Mr Chapman, Pickering, July 2014

    • “This is our second visit to Riverview as we have family in Irvine it is a perfect base for us to visit them and still have our own space. The views are spectacular and you are close to the shopping mall in one direction and the beach in the other. The fact that I have booked again for October says it all !!”

About the location


Troon 5 miles; Prestwick 8 miles; Ayr 12 miles.

Irvine is a Scottish 'new town' and the largest settlement on the north Ayrshire coast. There is a pretty harbourside walk, which takes in various features including an old crane, which highlights Irvine's former industrial heritage. There are coffee shops along the harbourside, a good local pub - The Ship Inn, a Maritime Museum, and the town also has a leisure centre with ice skating, indoor bowls, swimming pool and fitness facilities. For shopping, the Rivergate Shopping Centre is home to over 60 stores. Further afield in Ayrshire visitors can enjoy the history of Dundonald and Culzean Castles, play a round of golf at one of the many good courses in the area, or spend the day at one of the lovely beaches. In fact, the town of Ayr lies 12 miles further south along the coast and itself offers fine beaches and an esplanade. There are also good opportunities for hillwalking and cycling.
