Lough Foyle Ferry
The Greencastle-Magilligan Ferry on Lough Foyle service was introduced in 2002, and provides a direct link between Greencastle on the Inishowen Peninsula of Co. Donegal, and Magilligan, northwest of Coleraine, Northern Ireland. The ferries run throughout the day, from approximately 7:20 a.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. on weekends until 7:50 p.m. or later, depending on time of year. It's a continuous shuttle drive-on/drive-off service; no reservations are needed; crossing time is about 15 minutes. This vessel joins almost a half-dozen other such ferries that save time and mileage for motorists touring Ireland.
