Fastnet Rock was known as Ireland’s Teardrop as it was the last Irish structure seen as their ships carried them away to America, most of them never to return again.

For generations the majestic and isolated Fastnet Rock has fired the imaginations of onlookers, both locals and visitors alike. The Fastnet was also known as Ireland’s Teardrop as it was the last part of Ireland seen by thousands of Irish emigrants as they sailed away to the New World, most of them never to return again.

The Fastnet Rock Tour is a day trip that brings you first to the Fastnet Exhibition and multi media display in the Cape Clear & Fastnet Rock Heritage Centre on Cape Clear Island.

This will allow time to see the Fastnet Rock Memorials on Cape Clear Island and to view the Rock from the Island itself. The tour later circumnavigates the rock to view it from all sides at close quarters.
