The National Geographic Explorer Visits Arranmore Island

We were delighted to have been host to the 1st organised Cruise Ship landing at Arranmore Island.

The National Geographic Explorer graced our waters at 4.00pm on the 15th May afternoon, where we, along with our community, welcomed over 200 crew and passengers to our shore.

Everyone onboard had a wonderful time on Arranmore and couldn’t praise the hospitality they received enough.

We got some fantastic photos sent to us from friends of the ferry and we posted some of the best ones on our Facebook page.

Keep sending us your best images, we’re still bragging about this on our instagram page!
