Yes, we really are an island! Our slogan is "A Mile Away From Reality!" because we are a mile offshore. We have docking for up to 300 private boats, a helipad, and run two ferry/shuttle boats from our land-based restaurant/bar/marina: Port Of Blarney. If you have your own boat (or a friend with a boat) you WILL STILL NEED YOUR TICKET to gain access to the Island. If you need to be transported to the Island the ferry service leaves from the Port Of Blarney.
