Scattery Islands Tour


Scattery Island Tours offers a daily tourist ferry service to Scattery
Island, departing from Kilrush Marina (located just off Kilrush in Co.
Clare). Recently voted one of the seven wonders of Ireland, Scattery Island is a goldmine of heritage sites;
it contains the remains of several ancient churches, the Cathedral, as well as a
Napoleonic War Artillery Battery and working
lighthouse. Visitors can explore these sites
while doing the guided walking tour and
taking in the magnificent scenery, while
learning about the history of this serene
Island. The tour operators are committed to the Island’s
conservation, and only use compostable and
eco-friendly take-away packaging – which is
amazing! The ferry to Scattery Island departs from Kilrush
Marina and on arrival you'll be swept off on an exceptional
journey around the array of monastic sites through to
the other end of the Island where the lighthouse and Artillery Battery is located. There is
an exhibition at the visitor centre where the tour finishes, as well as
picnic tables for those keen on relaxing and having an island picnic by the shoreline.


Scattery Island Tours is located just off Kilrush in Co. Clare, and is a recognised
European Destination of Excellence since 2017. This remarkable little
Island is truly a unique visitor experience on Ireland’s Wild
Atlantic Way. Visitors to the island will be amazed at the wealth
of historic sites, which includes five Churches, a Cathedral, a
magnificent Round Tower, Napoleonic War Artillery Battery and a
working Lighthouse.
Your guided walking tour (also available in French, German,
Italian & Spanish) will immerse you in the island’s rich story.
Scattery also offers a great family day out and junior VIP’s
get their very own little treasure trail map so they can explore the island their
own way! Pack a picnic or even enjoy a swim in the fresh Shannon Estuary waters while you’re there!
Today the island is completely uninhabited, and visitors can explore
its ancient historic sites and experience its unspoilt natural
beauty in peace and tranquillity.
Scattery Island.. 'A remarkable story.. and unforgettable experience'...
