Family-based business operating to Clare Island and Inishturk Island for generations

The O’Grady Family have been operating a service to Clare Island since 1880.

The “Pirate Queen” named after the infamous 16th century Grace O’Malley(Granuaile), who lived on Clare Island during the course of her life as a “chief commander and director of thieves and murderers at sea”.

The “Clew Bay Queen” licensed to carry 96 passengers takes 20 minutes to make the crossing and is the largest ferry on the Clare Island service. The “Sea Sprinter” is licensed to carry 35 passengers and takes 10 minutes to make the crossing.

The journey gives enough time to view and photograph a most spectacular coastline which includes Achill Island, the Nephin Mountains, Clew Bay, Croagh Patrick, Killary Harbour, Renvyle and Inishbofin.
Special trips to and from Inishturk and Achill Island can be arranged for groups.
