I went to Irvine a few years ago - I think that they have stopped dredging the river so it might be shallow. I think you need to be towards high tide to get over the bar as well. We moored to a wall and had to allow enough in the mooring lines for the rise and fall. It's all a bit hazy because we accidentally got there for the weekend of the music festival. Visitors are welcome in the yacht club there - in fact the barman even put the pool table on to free play for us.
