My husband and I were taking a trip around Ireland and decided to take a detour to Kilmore Quay on our way to Wexford.
We were hoping to take an impromptu trip around the Saltee Islands.
We parked for free on the Quay itself and took a short stroll towards the harbour. There was a large sign saying Saltee Ferry with a few people stood nearby so we ventured over and was told the group needed a couple more people to make up the numbers to sail. We were so chuffed!
Within 10 minutes we were on the boat on our way.
The journey took us around 20 minutes and we were fortunate enough to have great weather. Our captain and crew knew the islands well and pointed out seals, cormorants, and a few other species of sea bird. Unfortunately we were a month too late to see puffins (my favourite) but had we had been a month earlier we would not have seen the grey seals. You can't have it all!
The bot ride latest around 1.5hrs and was enjoyable from beginning to end. It cost us €20 per adult and was worth every penny.
