Our ferries depart and return daily from Burtonport Pier and Arranmore Island. Our primary ferry and the largest on the island, the MV Movern, carries up to 96 passengers and is suitable for those with reduced mobility. The total journey time is 15 - 20mins leaving you plenty of time to enjoy this scenic part of the Wild Atlantic Way.
The Realt Na Maidne Teoranta (Star of the Morning) Ferry Company, has been operating in Arranmore Island and Burtonport Pier for 14 years. At the helm of the Arranmore Ferry is the Boyle family who pride themselves on providing an unforgettable experience of the Wild Atlantic Way and connecting the Arranmore community to Burtonport and beyond. We are proud islanders and for over 100 years our family has been helping our community travel to the mainland, starting with small personal boats and now proudly with the largest ferry in Arranmore. A hundred years ago, our family wanted to give people a lease of life, to help them get to work and today our ethos is the same. Today, the Arranmore Ferry is the largest ferry providing passengers and vehicles efficient transport to and from Arranmore Island. As true islanders we love sharing our beautiful island and showcasing its beautiful cliff scenery and stunning view of the Wild Atlantic Ocean.
