It starts with such a wonderful view from Dunquin Pier, looking down the winding path that takes you to the "pick-up" point. We had to take a rubber raft from there to the ferry on the way out. Just the views from the ferry were...More
After many years of having this visit on our bucket list, we finally got to take a boat trip from Dunquin Pier out to The Great Blasket Island. We booked through Facebook and were given lots of advice, bringing a picnic with us and comfy...More

Definitely not for people with any difficulties walking up steep slopes or scrabbling in and out of boats, this is a strenuous day but well worth it. We walked around the top of the mountain to the prehistoric site and enjoyed stunning views. Everyone else...More
I had no idea what to expect when we decided to take the ferry from Dunquin Pier over to the Great Blasket Island. My suggestion is to do it from Dunquin as opposed to Dingle - there are far more times available from Dunquin than...More
