O'Malley Ferries (Clare Island) Ltd.
O'Malley Ferries (Clare Island) Ltd., is a family-run business based on Clare Island, Co. Mayo.
The O'Malley family are natives of Clare Island and have been seafarers for many generations.
We are descendants of Grace O'Malley (Granuaile), the legendary 16th-century pirate queen who lived by her family trade of piracy and plunder.
Two fully licensed ferries, the "Naomh Ciaran II" and the "True Light", provide year-round links between the Mainland and Clare Island and Inishturk Co. Mayo.
The ferry trip to Clare Island takes less than 10 minutes while the trip to Inishturk takes approximately 50 minutes.
Both ferries are fully licensed by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.
We are now offering a Cargo Ferry Service for light and heavy cargo to Clare Island and Inishturk. The service is provided twice weekly on Tuesday and Friday.
