Shannon Estuary Ferry, County Clare
This pleasant, twenty minute journey across the Shannon Estuary will save 85 miles (137 km) from ferry terminal to ferry terminal providing a launching point to the many attraction of Clare, Kerry and adjoining counties. Whatever your reason for visiting the West and South west of Ireland, be it business or pleasure, plan on taking the Shannon Ferry across Ireland's finest river, where the resident schools of Dolphins regularly display their talents for the visitors.
At Shannon Ferry Group, your safety is the highest priority and the two ferries, Shannon Breeze and Shannon Dolphin are constructed to International and Irish Department of the Marine safety specifications. Every effort is made to ensure that your short, twenty minute crossing of the Shannon Estuary is as pleasant and relaxing as possible.Shannon Ferry Group currently operates two purpose-built ferries on its service across the Shannon Estuary.
Both utilising hydraulically operated ramps that are lowered on to a slipway ashore for boarding and disembarkation, and raised on departure. Each vessel is powered by four diesel engines each driving anomni-directional rudder propeller unit, which provides great manoeuvrability.
Shannon Breeze (60 cars, 350 passengers) and Shannon Dolphin (52 cars, 350 passengers) can each carry a wide variety of vehicles including commercial vehicles, coaches, caravans, camper vans and motorcycles.
Little Tips: Avoid Rush hours, there are a lot of people in summer and if you are on foot, before getting on the ferry, get adopted by a car, you won’t pay anything (or else it is the same price than for the cyclists).
