Atlantic Coastal Cruises

Overview

2h
This new venture is locally owned and a family-run business set up in 2019. The beautiful coastal town of Killybegs has been predominantly a commercial fishing town but with the rise in popularity of the Wild Atlantic Way, the influx of passing tourists has been noticed and this led to an offering of this maritime experience. Our new boat, the "Sliabh Liag Allure", is a strong Norwegian built vessel which can accommodate 97 passengers with professionally trained crew. The vessel will perform informative and visual tours of Killybegs harbour, Ireland’s largest fishing port with some of the world’s most modern and high-tech Pelagic fishing vessels. Also, on occasion luxury cruise liners visit the port and this will enable the public to get an up-close experience of these truly magnificent vessels. On leaving the harbour, we are met with Rotten Island lighthouse which was constructed in 1838. It is still functional and extremely important to all vessels entering and departing the port. We can also see in the distance St. John’s Point Lighthouse, located at the end of the long peninsula, constructed in 1831 and also still functional and now used as guest accommodation which is very popular. We will then travel west along the rugged Donegal coast which shows its beauty from centuries of Atlantic storms showing their strength, firstly passing Drimanoo Head. On route to the cliffs, we will view Fintra beach with its Blue Flag credentials, that then leads us on to Muckros Head & Carrigan Head. Rounding Carrigan Head with Napoleonic tower overhead looking down on us, the majestic Sliabh Liag cliffs start to come into view. As we travel around we can see “The Giant’s Desk and Chair” and this is leads us to the highest point of the cliffs which stand at 1,972ft/601 mtrs, making them the highest accessible sea cliffs in Europe.
