Your ferry awaits!
by paddyhillsbagger  20 Apr 2012
The road to both Inishturk and Clare Island ends at Roonagh Quay where you take the ferry to the islands to begin your climb. Phone 0868515003 A or log on www.clareislandferry.com for sailing times. My day on Inishturk was spectacular not only for the lovely climb, but the wildlife and fauna that abounds there. Choughs, Wheatears, Plovers, Puffins and cliffs filled with nesting Fulmars and Auks. The ferry trip across also revealed Gannets, Razorbills, Great Northern Divers and a solitary Manx Shearwater. The plant life was also rich, but despite taking photos, I've yet to identify many of them. A visit to the Inishturk Community Centre for refreshments and information leaflets and chats with the islanders is a must too. A truly spectacular day out!
