To visit Long Island you should arrive by boat at Midlands Pier. Small boats can tie up alongside the pier, but larger boats and yachts should anchor off. There is a good slipway.

Departing the mainland from Colla Pier, 3 km west of Schull village, gives the shortest crossing. You can avail of a ferry service from Colla or use your own boat. See our Ferry Timetable page. Starting from Schull harbour results in a longer journey but is also popular with visitors, especially in the summer months.
