Welcome to Bere Island Ferries

Enjoy the journey.

The island

At the entrance to the magnificent Bantry Bay, guarding the harbour of Berehaven, lies the beautiful Bere Island. The Slieve Miskish and Caha Mountain ranges of the Beara Peninsula tower over the island providing a dramatic backdrop. Despite its proximity to Castletownbere, the island retains a distinct, friendly charm of rural places distant from urban life.

It is in essence, peacful paradise.

The ferries run everyday, all year round, with trips almost every hour.
