Getting there & away
Bring waterproofs for the trip – it can be a wild ride. Donegal Coastal Cruises (Turasmara Teo; 953 1340) runs boats to Tory (adult/child/student return €22/11/16.50) from Bunbeg (daily June to September, Monday to Friday October to May) and Magheraroarty (two daily June to September, with an extra trip daily July and August). Magheraroarty is reached by turning off the N56 at the western end of Gortahork near Falcarragh; the road is signposted Coastal Route/Bloody Foreland.
There’s also a seasonal service from Port-na-Blagh, 2km east of Dunfanaghy (same price, Wednesday July and August).
Call ahead, as weather and tides affect sailings. It’s not uncommon for travellers to be stranded on the island in bad weather.
