Aran Island Ferries largest vessel en route to Galway on: September 20, 2020, 07:26:37 pm
The largest domestic ferry to sail in Ireland, the 40-metre 'Saoirse na Farraige', has begun her delivery voyage.

The ship, constructed by Cheoy Lee Shipyards in Hong Kong, was loaded aboard the heavy lift ship 'Svenja' last week.

The vessel, which has a capacity of 400 passengers, will operate from Rossaveel, Co Galway to all three Aran Islands, taking 45-minutes to reach Inis Mor, 50 minutes to Inis Meain and 55 minutes to Inis Oirr, the company says.

The new ship will join Aran Island Ferries existing fleet, including Branrion Na Farruge, Ceol na Farraige, Draiocht na Farraige and Glor na Farraige.
