TSS Rosstrevor was a steam turbine passenger and cargo vessel operated by the London and North Western Railway from 1895 to 1923, and the London, Midland and Scottish Railway from 1923 to 1926.[1]


She was built by William Denny and Brothers for the London and North Western Railway in 1895 and put on the Holyhead - Greenore route in succession to paddle steamer Earl Spencer.

She was named after the townland in which the village of Rostrevor is located in County Down, Northern Ireland.

On 2 March 1908 she was grounded at Carlingford Lough. She was refloated on 7 March, repaired and returned to service.[2]

In 1908, the TSS Rathmore replaced her on this route. Her first class accommodation was removed and she was transferred to the Holyhead - Dublin service.

She was scrapped in 1926.
