Tarbert - Killimer Ferry (Tarbert)

From early morning as the mist descends the Shannon Estuary to the Wild Atlantic Sea, to the setting of the sun in the late of the evening, Shannon Ferry will take you and your vehicle on this memorable 20 minute journey across the estuary linking the iconic tourist destinations of the Banner County of Clare to the Kingdom of Kerry.

This is a lovely experience for visitors who would like a short break in their journey to relax as they sail across the majestic Shannon Estuary. And if you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the dolphins which, in the summer, can sometimes swim near the ferry, as if just to entertain you.

As the only vehicle ferry trip on the main spine of the Wild Atlantic Way, this invigorating journey allows you experience the rugged nature of land and sea as you breath in the fresh salty sea air that encapsulates Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

The ferry leaves Killimer (Clare) every hour on the hour (07.00hrs - 21.00hrs) and Tarbert (Kerry) every hour on the half hour (07.30hrs - 21.30hrs). Half hour sailings during the summer months.

Catering and shopping provided in the visitor centre. Extensive range of books, souvenirs of Ireland, music CD`s and tapes, sweets and icecream.
