Pirate Queen Trip – Clare Island
Due to unpredictable weather and tides we have decided to base ourselves in Westport for the weekend and visit Clare Island and other ports. We will launch at Rosmunny slip which can be used even at low tides. This is 11km from Westport. There is parking for trailers and a floating jetty to leave boats overnight. As the May Bank Holiday is a very busy weekend it is advisable for all to book your own accommodation asap. There is plenty of accommodation available in the area. Some are:
