Ferry Link Could Halve Journey from Burren to Galway

12th January 2011
Ferry Link Could Halve Journey from Burren to Galway
Galway city could see a new ferry link with the Burren in Co Clare, pending a feasibility study.
The proposed 'Ballyvaughan Bay Hop' ferry could see the travel time between the two locations halved, and could be ready to go by early next year.
The Ballyvaughan area is just across the bay from Galway city but by road is almost 50km away.
The ferry link could breathe new life into the popular tourist spot, connecting with greater employment opportunities, according to spokeswoman Gwen Ryan.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
