East Ferry is an area of East Cork overlooking Cork Harbour in Ireland. The area takes its name from a ferry which historically crossed the channel separating Garranekinnefeake promontory (close to Midleton) from Great Island (close to Cobh).[1][2][3]

East Ferry, a residential area on the Eastern side of this channel, is in the civil parish of Garranekinnefeake.[4] Notable buildings in the area include Holy Trinity church, a 19th century church in the Church of Ireland Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross.[5][6][7] A coastguard station was also previously located in the area.[8][9]

East Ferry Marina, a commercial marina on the Western side of the channel, is in the Marlogue area of Great Island.[10] A sailing school, 'SailCork', operates from the marina.[1]
