This is a lovely experience for visitors who would like a short break in their journey to relax as they sail across the majestic Shannon Estuary. And if you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the dolphins, which in the summer, can sometimes swim so near the ferry, as if just to entertain you. As the only vehicle ferry trip on the main spine of the Wild Atlantic Way, this invigorating journey allows you experience the rugged nature of land and sea as you breath in the fresh salty sea air that encapsulates Irelands Wild Atlantic Way. « less

Its warm, relaxing atmosphere is welcoming and the adjoining Bed and Breakfast is of the finest quality with large spacious rooms overlooking the noted Heritage Town of Kilrush. Some of our rooms overlook Kilcredane Lighthouse and the historic townland of Reaha.Kilrush has a fine Georgian streetscape, a marina, an eighteen hole golf course, Dolphin boat trips, the restored nineteenth century Vandeleur Walled Gardens, and of course the restored West Clare Railway (immortalised by Percy French: 'are you right there Michael'), the magnificent and ancient Scattery Island which contains the remains of five of seven churches, an intact 5th century, 120 feet round tower, Napoleonic battery, a light house and keepers cottage, the deserted 'street' from the 1960s is both eerie and charming. A monthly lecture series by the local Kilrush Historical Society complements many of the local activities. Kilrush is a veritable Photographers Paradise (a quick search through Flickr confirms this) and all are welcome to enjoy the music, sample the atmosphere and experience the tranquility of Kilrush topped-off with a great pint of Guinness with Shamrock atop in Buggles Pub. « less
