Blasket Island Ferries

bád farantóireachta - ferry boat

Passenger ferries operate from the mainland to the Great Blasket Island during the Spring, Summer and Autumn, weather permitting. Ferries may be boarded at Dún Chaoin Pier opposite the island (20 minutes crossing), at the Marina in Dingle Town (a 40 minute trip), or at Ventry Pier.

Boat Transfer

Ferry passengers are usually transferred by smaller boat to a sheltered slipway on the island. It is a very short crossing and all passengers are given life jackets for this part of the journey. 

What to bring

Sturdy shoes are recommended for the slipway and for exploring the island. There is very little shelter from the weather on the island so bring sunscreen or rain gear depending on the forecast. Water and a picnic will ensure you enjoy the day.

Ferry sailings are affected by weather and are seasonal. Visitors are advised to check with the companies concerned or with the tourist office in Dingle (phone: +353 66 9151188 email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
