The ferry from Magheroarty doesn't take cars, which is no bad thing. Even in the height of summer its hours of operation are completely unfathomable.
For example in July 2003, when I was there they put on an extra run so a VIP coud get to a funeral on the island!
It's best to ask and presume on one sometime in the morning and one sometime in the late afternoon. In the depths of winter be warned - if the seas are rough you could be marooned there for days, even weeks.
The cost is currently 22 euro. Or 12 if you have connections to the island, or 6 if you are an islander ! Odd how this dosn't seem to get published.
Even odder still they are allowed to 'cart' 72 passengers over in the summer but only 58 at a time in the winter.

The Illicit distilling of Poteen takes place in many areas across Ireland, but this is one of the finer places for it to happen.
Sometimes known as Irish moonshine, it is in fact similar to vodka as it is based on the Potato. Be warned (I almost put this on the dangers section) it can be very strong - although you seem to get drunk from the feet up, and when you stand up : you tend to fall down again.
Being illegal, one should not ask for the stuff, but if you are really getting on well with someone a bottle might just appear !
You can now buy commercially produced stuff, but it is obviously far weaker and less potent than the real McCoy.
