Someone posted recently that the Dunquin-Blasket boat was no longer running. Not true. I was at the Dunquin pier area today taking pics (beautiful day) and a fellow came up checking the swells. Turns out he runs one of the Blasket boats. He said due to high swells, even though the sea was calm, he wouldn't be running today but he anticipates better conditions tomorrow.
I asked him about the condition of the pier due to winter storms and he said there was very little damage! The reason it had to be repaired was some damage to the walkway leading down to the pier. But he said pier damage was very minor and has been repaired.
So, if you want to take the boat from Dunquin, it is running daily based on sea conditions.
