Must visit the Smaller Island, less populated, great pub food, good cycling and great views. Just refreshes you completely!

It is interesting, but we would have liked to go on a shorter stay on the island (the small one). The ferry itself is great.

If you have the time go to the Islands. We took the boat over and stayed 3.5 hours just enough time to walk around and to see the Island. Also you can ride bikes or take a buggy ride to tour the Island. There is also a nice pub on Innis Orr. It started to storm as we prepared for... More

This was a good trip. We did the combo tour but nearly everyone was sick on the part that went to the Cliffs. May be a little bigger more stable boat is needed. Other wise the trip was well worth it.

Amazing place! Was a little frightened on the way back around the base of the Cliffs of Moher, but overall it was a great day!

We took the ferry to see one of the Aran Islands and we had an excellent tour. We rode in a cart out to the stranded ship and enjoyed seeing the plots of land. Afterward we sailed right to the base of the Cliffs. Beautiful! Shop in person instead of the internet for a better price.

Dislike: was not told you would have to off-load to small boats to get back to the Pier during low tide.

The ferry was great once you figured out which boat. A great suggestion would be to have location markers or advise travelers where and which boat to be looking for on the trip back. Our day on the Island was fantastic! Well worth the minor issue of figuring out which boat.

good trip out and interesting island but we were unlucky with the trip back via the cliffs of moher as the sea was really choppy. I got seasick and a cold, most people were seasick.
