Plan for a full day in Doolin and take a trip to the smaller and closer of the Aran Islands, Inasheer, on Doolin2Aran Ferries. Take the 10AM ferry over, hire a bicycle for the day, return on the 4:45 ferry and enjoy a super, close up tour of the Cliffs of Moher on the return. Doolin2Aran Ferries is the company... More

We loved seeing the Cliffs of Moher from the water. We hiked it earlier in the day and were amazed at how much more there is to see by water. The crew was great, we loved talking to them and getting lots of local stories. Wait until you see the 80,000 birds nesting in the rock below O'Brien's Tower! You... More

Hello there, You certainly made the most of your trip to the Cliffs of Moher, from hiking along the side, to the boat cruise below. We have just started a new tour called the Cliffs of Moher 360 - where you see from the top, take a guided tour along the side and from the sea cruise. Sounds like you... More

Doing the trip with Doolin was great. The trip started with the nice little Doolin Discovery with calm sea and brought us to Inisheer. On the way back the cruise to the cliffs was spectlular though a bit rough and wet at the end. I highly advise to do that trip. But be aware, as soon as you are leaving... More

Hi there, Thank you for your lovely review. Inis Oirr is certainly a place to remember and the cliffs from the sea is a once in a lifetime experience. Some days the sea at the cliff is flat calm, other days it is more lively. Now if only we could control the Atlantic ocean....but that is part of the thrill... More

Comfortable ship, pleasant crew. Beautiful day, calm seas. Just a spectacular day. We took the 10am ferry and it gave us plenty of time to tour Inishmore and be back in time for the 4pm ferry to Doolin!

Its a great experience. The crew are very helpful and the islands are mindblowing. The people on the islands are so friendly. They make us homesick. When we are in Doolin, its a must.

The ferry took us to see the Cliffs of Moehr, which is an impressive place to see. There was a scene from a Harry Potter movie shot here, and the captain that took us also took the crew to film de scene. The crew was very nice and very helpful.

Ola Lucia, thank you for taking the time to post your review. The Harry Potter cave is very popular to see from our boat - it was very exciting when we were involved in the filming, TOP SECRET and we really wanted to tell everybody ;) so now we can! Kind regards Joan More

The 1 1/2 hour ride to Inishmore Island was easily accomplished on this ferry service. Online reservations were easy, and getting to and from the island was a beautiful to see the sights.

Hello there, I really enjoyed reading about your trip to the Cliffs of Moher and Inis Oirr. Couldnt agree more about Inis Oirr as a great day out for all ages. The beach alone is worth it, and then there's the bike rides, the playground and the fun of being on a little island :) Thanks for taking the time... More

This is absolutely the best way to experience the majestic Cliffs of Moher - with the small boats from Doolin from Doolin2Aran Ferries. After building large concrete rails along the edge the wonderful experience of standing at the edge with 230 m vertical down to the Atlantic Ocean, this has completly ruined the visit on land. So next time, take... More
