What a great experience, definately need at least 1 full day to take in the sight, take 40-45 mins by boat to get here, weather permitting but a lovely pub and tranquil views await you. Cosy B&bs available. A must visit if in Baltimore

I had seen a few videos of the island done by RTE and you could tell it was a special place. Changed by itinerary around so I could fit the island in during our recent trip to Ireland. It did not disappoint. I saw a number of people featured in the video during my visit and met a lady on... More

We got the first ferry over in order to have adequate time to enjoy our walk. There are 2 walks you can do on the island which are signposted by red or green arrows, we... More

On a short visit with my cousin and friends from Rochester we had a marvelous time on Cape Clear. I'm going back for more next summer I hope.

Well worth a day trip. Take the ferry from Baltimore and hike the Island, spot jelly fish in the crystal clear water and eat fish and chips by the dock.
