  • The boat was supposed to stop at the bird colony. It didn't which Was disappointing. Also the ferry does not land on the island if the tide is too low. Island is great needs a proper guide not sure the skipper we had was verbal at all. Disappointing.
  • The men that run this boat are nothing but professional and courteous. I had to take a survey on the island and they gave me a phone number to call when i wanted to come back. Ken gave me loads of information and offered a spin around the far side of the island when i was finished. I will be returning.
  • If you're looking for a great trip around one of the most amazing landmarks in Ireland, look no further than Ireland's Eye Ferries. Their prices are really fair at €10 for a trip around the island and just an extra €5 to explore it yourself, and they are without a doubt the best and friendliest service for getting to Ireland's Eye. I noticed that some of the other services don't even give you the option to land on the island! Anyway, I was very glad that I found this ferry service and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to do around Howth!
  • Really good experience via ferry trip. Helpful staff.
  • So it's 10€ to boat around the island and 15€ to land on it. But that's about it - this is literally just a boat ride around the island. That's great, and you do get some nice pictures, but there's no tour guide giving you a history of the Eye or anything - you basically spend 45 minutes on a small boat with some picture opportunities. For that price, I was honestly expecting a bit more.
