Ireland's Eye Boat Tour

Howth Cliffs and Ireland's Eye Ferry



Our small group Howth boat tours allow nature to take centre stage as we explore the nooks and crannies along the islands waterline, getting up close and personal with the mesmerising nature and wild creatures. This is a Nature Reserve protected by EU habitats and the core zone of the UN Dublin Bay Biosphere.

See the large colony of seals around the island and in the water around the harbour.

A spectacular natural feature, is the huge freestanding rock called “the Stack”. Located at the northeastern corner of the island, it plays host to a large variety of seabirds.

Beautiful, informative, and fun. Shane and his first mate were kind, welcoming, funny, and full of stories, history, and information about the nature around us. It’s off season but we got a gorgeous sunny late afternoon voyage and an up-close view of the island, birds, and seals. They clearly love this place and it shows. I would do this again next time I come to Howth. Highly recommend. Thanks to both of you!

Gannets at Ireland'e Eye

Ireland's Eye Ferries Nature Voyage 

Savour a beautiful and astonishing voyage of discovery under the broad skies, passing under the cliffs on the water close to caves in company with wild and mesmerising seabirds such as gannets, guillemots, cormorants, kittiwakes and seagulls.  

Don't miss the opportunity to see the puffins who make Ireland's Eye home from April to June.


Smell The Sea & Feel The Sky

There is nothing quite like the experience of the sea from a purpose built boat with a friendly, salty and expert skipper.

Great opportunities for once in a lifetime photographs and the real feeling of leaving the shore behind

Eyes peeled for the seals, porpoise, dolphin and occasional whale that are all making the Irish Sea their home again.
