Clare Island was lovely, we... More

When yo arrive at the docks there are competing ferries calling out to you. Be sure that you go to the hut on the left. These gents have had this ferry for many years, now there is a small boat pretending to be a ferry, BEWARE!

The vessel itself is basic but very good value for money, reliable, and staff are professional. Clare Island definitely worth the trip! Overall we would recommend this company.

As a ferry provider, It's a ferry, other reviewers state its grubby etc, but I think it's norm for ferries to Irish island. €15 adult return is reasonable. The best thing is, it's runs, ours departed( mins late as it waited for s local ) & the company answer the phone (if u have queries) unlike Tory Island ferries!!! Can... More
