Larne Harbour railway station, Larne, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, serves the ferry port for ferries to Cairnryan and Troon, Scotland and Fleetwood, England. The station co-exists with the passenger terminus for P&O Irish Sea ferries offering simple integration for foot passengers.

Unfortunately, the simplicity is not mirrored at the Scottish termini and traffic has diminished since Stena Line rerouted their Stranraer services from Larne to Belfast.

The station was opened on 1 October 1862 and closed for goods traffic on 4 January 1965. [cite web | title=Larne Harbour station | work=railscot - Irish Railways | url=http://www.railscot.co.uk/Ireland/Irish_railways.pdf | accessdate=2007-05-08]
