The barge arrives

This barge arrives on Inis Meáin three times a week in Winter – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It travels across from Galway, leaving at 4am in the morning and arriving on the island just before sunrise, about 8.30am. It’s clearly the lifeblood of this island in many ways – delivering cars, groceries, building materials, furniture and sometimes animals. Passengers arrive on the ferry which leaves from the island twice a day from the port on the other side of the island.
