Clare Island Ferry Company

The Clare Island Ferry Company is owned and operated by Brian & Alan O’Grady, natives of Clare Island whose family have been operating the Clare Island Ferry service since 1880.

Alan & Brian operates the LARGEST and most MODERN ferries to Clare Island, fully certifies by Failte Ireland and the Department of the Marine.

The cruise from Roonagh Quay (west of Louisburgh) to Clare Island takes just 15 minutes on board our Clare Island fast ferries. The journey gives you just enough time to view and photograph a most spectacular coastline which includes Achill Island, the Nephin mountain range, the islands of Clew Bay, Croagh Patrick (Ireland’s famous pilgrimage mountain) and Inishturk.
