The Greencastle to Magilligan ferry (branded as the Scenic Foyle Ferry) is a short crossing across the mouth of the Foyle. The crossing takes around fifteen minutes.

Note that this is a different Greencastle to the other Greencastle which also coincidentally has a pier with regular ferries crossing the mouth of Carlingford Lough - see Greencastle - Greenore ferry.
