About Us

Scattery Island Tours is a family business, owned and operated by a descendant of Scattery Island.

A close personal connection with the island ensures that we offer our guests a memorable experience when visiting. We’re passionate about offering our customers the very best of customer care while ensuring that the island’s delicate natural environment remains protected.

Our team is committed to the islands conservation and we’re very proud of the various initiatives that we have to deliver this, such as our ‘Leave no Trace Policy’, our ‘Clean Coasts initiative,’ and our eco-friendly lunch packs and fully compostable coffee cups!

We love what we do and sharing this wonderful little island with our guests. We look forward to welcoming you on board someday soon.

Scattery Island Ferry Service

Ferries Depart from Kilrush Marina from May to September with multiple sailings daily

Our new catamaran ferry is licensed to carry up to 70 passengers and has 55 seats. The outdoor seating area features an all-weather canopy to provide complete shelter from the rain if required.

The ship is called An Breandan. St. Brendan the Navigator was the Patron Saint of Navigators, and Breandan is also the name of one of the owners’ fathers, who was born on Scattery Island.

The vessel can cater to group bookings, school tours, or corporate days out, and the deck area features moulded seating and tables. It is wheelchair friendly and can accommodate up to 10 wheelchairs per cruise. For more information about accessibility, please visit our FAQ page.

We offer a cafe service onboard that includes tea, coffee, water, and snacks, open to guests while the vessel is underway.

Our vessel is fully licensed by the Marine Survey Office in Ireland. We look forward to welcoming you onboard An Breandan soon!
