Lough Foyle Ferry
Founded in 2002, the Lough Foyle Company provides services to and from the Inishowen Peninsula of County Donegal.
The most popular service known as the Lough Foyle route is a ferry which travels between Greencastle and Magilligan. The ferry transports both cars and passengers between Magilligan point and Greencastle Harbour.
It explores the North West of Ireland, offering breath-taking views and a captivating tour of one of Ireland’s most scenic routes.
The route itself takes a mere 15 minutes and is a must do for anyone travelling to the North West area. It takes in what is known as the ‘Colombian Corridor’ which was integral to Ireland in the past for trade and monastic reasons.
By travelling this route you will follow the same course a litany of saints, scholars and legends have travelled in the past.
They have recently launched a new Ferry friendly discount scheme which offers customers cut price deals on a variety of businesses and attractions in both the Inishowen Peninsula and along the Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland.
The offers are available from April through to October when the ferry is operational. With over 40 partners involved in the scheme there are many deals to be found. All partners and discounts can be found at www.visitinishowen.com and www.causewaycoastandglens.com
To avail of these offers customers must retain ferry tickets and present it to the participating business. The ferry ticket is valid from the day of purchase up until two days later i.e. A Friday ticket will be valid Fri-Sun.
It is worth noting that although return tickets are open the discounts can only be used within 3 days of the purchase date and not the date that you use the return. Each ticket may only be used once with each participating business.
The Lough Foyle Ferry Company has a new SMS service which allows customers to check if the sailing service is running normally. Text “ASSIST” to 51444 (ROI) or 88990 (UK) for updates.
