Clare Island Adventures is a joint venture between three local companies who have joined forces to promote Clare Island as an adventure activity hotspot.
Adventure West – as the name suggests, are the adventure specialists. They operate from Clare Island, Westport, Louisburgh and the surrounding hinterlands. Clew Bay is their playground and they hope you will join them. They like there adrenalin and specialise in coasteering, snorkelling, rock-climbing/abseiling, raft building and more. But if you’d prefer a tamer adventure, they also cater for hiking and orienteering interests.
Go Explore Hostel and Sailor’s Bar and Restaurant – They grew up on the island and know it inside out and upside down. Originally the house of the O’Donnell’s, landlords of the Clew Bay area in the mid 1800s, the hostel sits on top of a small cliff surrounded by open Atlantic waters. In 2012 the building was completely renovated and purpose rebuilt as a modern hostel with high quality facilities. In addition to stunning views, it also boasts an in-house traditional bar (Sailor’s Bar and restaurant) which hosts traditional music, dancing, food and craic every weekend.
Clare Island Ferry Company – They are the people who get you there! Operating from Roonagh Pier, just outside Louisburgh, they run daily ferries all year round to Clare Island and they also arrange private ferries to Inishturk or Achill Island for pre-arranged group bookings.
Together Clare Island Adventures are your one stop shop for adventure activities, accommodation, food, beverage, entertainment and ferry access to Clare Island
