Will give you a water view of the cliffs

Went out on a very choppy day but we were warned about it. We were also told we were going to get wet.But if you can survive the roads you can survive choppy waters.

It looked very rough on the ocean the day we went on the cruise but the crew handled it very well and we saw beautiful views from the ocean of the Cliffs of Moher and it was a lovely experience?

Very impressive tour round the Cliffs of Moher especially as the skipper got the boat within inches of the base of the sea stack and we could see the chicks in the nests, reasonable fee as well

It was a rough day for being out in the sea but the boat/crew were great. We left on time and returned on time. Once you get off the boat you can get a map/guide from the bike rental shop. 3 hours was just enough time to ride around and see most of the sites. Highly recommend this trip unless... More

Besides the amazing experience of the ferry and the magnificient views from the ocean and the interesting islang, we received exceptional personal service and assistance in coordinating a last minute ride to the island. Chris made sure we had suitable accomodations and went out of his way to arrange the most convenient rides back and forth - we felt totally... More

I have used Doolin2Aran Ferries twice, and I have always been very happy with them. I have booked the Cliffs tour and it was an unforgettable experience!

We were really looking forward to our Cliffs of Moher boat trip, but, unfortunately, when the day finally arrived, the weather wasn't cooperating. We showed up at the Ferry office for our reservation, and we weren't particularly happy about the weather. But the two young ladies in the office made us forget about the weather, and, before long, we were... More

Others will complain of the rocky seas ... but it IS the Atlantic Ocean and no one should get on a boat unprepared for it. Take some Bonine (OTC med) and you won't have any trouble. Maybe you will find sailing as smooth as glass but that's doubtful. But no matter what the weather ... it's worth it. The views... More
