The Port of Foynes offers tranquil sheltered waters of the Shannon Estuary and beautiful scenery for passengers. Convenient to both natural areas and historic castles, the Port of Foynes offers complete and effective services for cruise vessels and passengers.
The village of Foynes is a short walk from the berth, as are the museum and a range of shopping and dining establishments.
The Port of Foynes’ most popular tourist attraction is the Foynes Flying Boat Museum which tells the story of early aviation from 1939 to 1945 when the first transatlantic flights operated out of Foynes. The Museum occupies the original airplane terminal, and a full-scale replica of the “Yankee Clipper” (the Pan Am flying boat that made the first historic flight) is on display.
