Very well run service from Burtonport to Arainn Mhor Island.Staff are extremely pleasant and great time keeping. Top tip would be to book in advance either by phone or online to insure you get your preferred sailing times. Fantastic service.

Arranmore blue ferry in a great choice when traveling to the island. You will be welcomed in the office by the lovely Rachael and if you’re taking your car the crew will reverse it onboard. Scenic twenty minute journey, you won’t be disappointed.
