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.
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.
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.
