Cape Clear Island
from Walking in Ireland
The ferry arrives in the North Harbour of Cape Clear Island, where you'll
find the tourist office, public toilets, library, Club Chléire
social and cultural center, and a small grocery store and café.
A standing stone and the Well of St. Ciarán are
also along the waterfront. St. Ciarán was born on Cape Clear Island in 352 A.D.
and was preaching the Christian faith at least 30 years before St. Patrick
arrived on the scene.
As you walk uphill, you'll pass a souvenir shop
and Cotter's Bar on your way to accommodations and the South Harbour (which is
no more than 10 minutes away on foot).
