Cape Clear Island & Fastnet Cruises operate Tuesday & Thursday (June), Tuesday- Sunday (July&August) return sailings on our orange ferry, Dún Aengus, between the village of Schull to Ireland's most southern & enchanting Gaeltacht island: Cape Clear Island.
Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday we operate cruises to the most famous & fantastic Fastnet Rock Lighthouse/an Carraig Aonair- our crew ensure only but the best views of the alluring Fastnet Rock; or also commonly known as 'Tear Drop of Ireland' as it was the last part of Irish soil seen by the immigrant ships as they sailed away from shore and disappeared over the horizon, bound for America, in years gone by.
Short detours on scheduled sailings can be made when whales, dolphins or basking sharks are spotted.
(Sailings are weather permitted as it is our policy to always put passenger comfort first so that we can assure our clients of a pleasant trip.)

Spend a night on the Island in one of the B&Bs, the youth hostel or try a Yurt.
