Day 2 Scattery Island & Foynes Flying Boat Museum
We begin our day from Kilrush Marina and a cruise around unihabited Scattery Island, steeped in legends and folklore and home to a monastery founded by Saint Senan in the early 6th century. We enjoy a 90 minute cruise around the island; look out for its ruined monastery, Irish round tower, church buildings and remains of an artillery battery, before cruising back to the mainland. We then travel by coach to Killimer where we board the ferry to Tarbert for onward travel to the famous Foynes Flying Boat Museum, home to the world’s only replica of a B314 legendary flying boat, where we enjoy a guided tour and Irish coffee experience.
