Donkeys Have Souls, Too is the season premiere of The Amazing Race 12.
Teams must fly to Shannon, Ireland. Teams may only take one of two flights. The British Airways flight can carry the first five teams and is scheduled to arrive first. The Aer Lingus flight can carry the remaining seven teams. Upon arrival, teams must take a taxi to Rossaveal ferry port, take a ferry to Inishmore, and find Teampall Bheanáin. At the church, teams must sign up for one of three ferries departing in the morning at 8 am, 8:30 am, and 9:30 am. The first two ferries could only accommodate three teams each, while the last ferry would carry the five remaining teams.
