Welcome to our Locality Partnership web pages. Irvine is an industrial town that sits 26 miles south of Glasgow. It is steeped in history, despite being classed as a new town, and was made a Royal Burgh in 1372 by King Robert II. It has a population of around 33,700 and there is a vibrant community spirit. Every year the Marymass Festival takes place when Irvine’s communities actively participate to create a party atmosphere in the town.

Irvine boasts its own lovely beach and has great amenities for keeping healthy and active. The new Portal Leisure Centre, developed by one of our partners, (KA Leisure) has recently opened.

The town has a strong connection to Robert Burns, the Scottish poet who once worked in the area and it has a long maritime history that can be explored in the Maritime Museum at the harbour area.
