– “If the weather is bad are we refunded?”
If we are unable to operate due to bad weather conditions, we fully reimburse each booking. In the event of cancelling we have a 24 hour cancellation policy, whereby you must give at least 24 hour notice before departure otherwise you will be charged.
– “What time is the return trip the following day?”
We ask overnight guests to be flexible with regards return times. As we base all trips on sea conditions/bookings, we cannot confirm return time until closer to departure date. If you are fixed to an itinerary, there are other ferry companies that offer set schedules which may suit better.
– “Do you offer childrens rate”
We charge the same price for adults and children as we operate a small 12 passenger boat. Dingle Bay Charters, Eco Marine Tours and Dunquin ferries do offer child rates due to bigger capacity boats which may suit better.
– “What should we bring for our stay”
All you need for your overnight stay is yourself and some food. We also advise to bring insect repellent for the evening time.
– “We have elderly parents, will they manage this trip?”
We emphasise that all passengers must tranship into a smaller dinghy on arrival to the island. We do ensure as much help is offered and will not proceed if one feels uncomfortable. The island itself is quite physical. On arrival passengers must step onto a slipway (which can be slippery) – From here there is a steep climb made made from a natural rocky stairway which has a handrail for extra support. All pathways are made from grassy tracks so please be sure to have good, sturdy footware on.
– “Can we cycle on the island?”
Unfortunately the island does not offer suitable cycling tracks.
-” Can I bring my car on the ferry/island?”
– “Are dogs allowed?”
We welcome pets on our boat and in accommdation, as long as they are fully controlled and on a lead.
