Welcome or ‘Failte Romhat’ as we say on Cape Clear Island.
About Cape Clear Island
Cape Clear Island is a small inhabited Gaeltacht island off the coast of West Cork, especially well known for its bird sightings, its unusual flora and fauna, and its unspoiled landscape.
Around 150 people live on the island permanently, and this can double or treble in the summer months with visitors.
Cape Clear Island is serviced by an all year round ferry (via Baltimore), extra ferries during the summer months (via Baltimore and Schull). There is also public transport on Cape Clear Island.
