Blasket Island Ferries


We are the longest established, and were for many years the only, ferry company operating to the island.

Relax and soak in the breathtaking views of the most westerly lands in Europe while listening to the calls of the huge number of breeding seabirds such as puffins, fulmars, guillemots, storm petrels and shearwaters.

A truly magical trip with a glimpse of dolphins, whales, orcas and porpoises. Come and enjoy this remote and unspoilt beauty first hand and we promise you an experience never to be forgotten.

We operate a 12 passenger ferry the Lady Avalon, from Dunquin Pier/Cé Dhún Chaoin to The Great Blasket Island/An Blascaod Mór. Hourly trips from approx 9:50 am. It takes 20 minutes for the crossing and visitors get to enjoy approx 3hrs 45mins exploring the wild beauty of the island. The OPW offer free guided walking tours around the island village. Ferry service is weather permitting. 

A trip not to be missed!
