Ferries

Ferries run between Clare Island and the mainland at Roonagh Pier near Louisburgh and Cloughmore near Achill Sound. One ferry ticket (cost €35) covers both journeys for you and your bike but tickets are not transferable - you must travel with the same company on both ferry journeys. Ferries must be booked in advance. 

Clare Island-Roonagh-Clare Island ferries run regularly every day (about every 75 minutes)

Ferries between Achill and Clare Island run in the summer months only.

(May/June/September - Wednesday only; July/August - Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays)

Full ferry time details are on the websites www.clareislandferry.com and www.omalleyferries.com

Electric bikes can be brought on the ferries but the batteries must be removed before the bike goes onto the boat.

 

If you have a group doing the Clew Bay Bike Trail, please contact the ferry companies directly for rates.
