    The Shannon-car-ferry from Tarbert to Killimer

    by globetrott Written Sep 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The mouth of the river Shannon is quite wide and long at the westcoast of Ireland and there is an interesting ferry-connection between the villages of Tarbert in the north of County Kerry and Killimer in the south of County Clare.
    Instead of driving 137 extra km ( 85 miles )you simply have to wait a few minutes for the ferry, pay around 13 Euros one way for cars and small motorhomes and take a ferry-ride of ca. 20 minutes. This makes sense, when you want to get from Co.Kerry to the Burren and places like Kilkee, Kilfenora,Milltown Malbay or Ennistimon and the Burren.
    For updated prices and timetables of that ferry-connection - please check the webpage below !!

    Killimer to Tarbert Car Ferry

    An alternate way to travel from County Clare into County Kerry is to take the car ferry from Killimer in County Clare to Tarbert in County Kerry (or vice versa).

    It is a 20 minute trip, that takes you across the River Shannon and is a very civilised way to travel.

    It cost about 13 euros oneway/20 euros return per car.

  • Coming from Co. Kerry

    If you are driving up from Co. Kerry take the ferry over the Shannon from Tarbert (Co. Kerry) to Killimer (Co. Clare).
    It costs 10 IEP which you pay on the boat and saves you a lot of miles and time! Boats go from Killimer on the hour, from Tarbert on the half hour.
