Killimer–Tarbert Car Ferry

"Our Goal is your Safety and Enjoyment".

At ShannonFerry Group, your safety is our highest priority and our two ferries, Shannon Breeze and Shannon Dolphin are constructed to International and Irish Department of the Marine Safety Specifications. Every effort is made to ensure that your short, 20 minute, crossing of the Shannon Estuary is as pleasant and relaxing as possible.

ShannonFerry Group currently operates two purpose-built ferries on its service across the Shannon Estuary.  Each of our ferries carry a wide variety of vehicles including:

  • Cars
  • MPVs
  • Commercial Vehicles
  • Coaches 
  • Caravans
  • Camper vans
  • Motorcycles
  • Foot passengers.

Both are Ro-Ro in design utilising hydraulically operated ramps that are lowered on to a slipway ashore for boarding and disembarkation, and raised on departure.  Each vessel is powered by four diesel engines each driving an omni-directional rudder propeller unit, which provides great manoeuvrability.
