We had a good combination trip with this company; Aran island and Cliffs of Moher. The trip was worth taking! We had several hours on Inis Oirr, enough time to walk around and see the sights. We then were back on the boat for a trip to see the Cliffs. What a treasure!

We took the Doolin 2 Aran and Cliffs of Moher tour. This was a delightful ride to The Aran Isle of Inisheer, with a couple of hours to site see and grab some grub and a pint at the pub. On return we passed by the Cliffs of Moher to see the spectacular views from the ocean. The ferry staff... More

Yesterday I went on a day tour to the smallest of the Aran Islands - Inis Oirr. To get there you take a passenger ferry from the pier. Now here's where it got interesting. Because the tide was out an the water so low we were required to be taken out to the ferry in smaller boats. However, these boats... More

My husband and I did the trip to Aran plus the cliffs of Moher tour combination package. I'm rating Doolin2Aran Ferries as average because I believe that's exactly what it is. From a transport perspective to get to the islands, it's an excellent option. You get there and back safely and with many departure options. The only bit of feedback... More

We booked the combination Aran Island/Cliffs of Moher cruise just a day before we headed out for our 2-week trip to Ireland. We're so glad we did! Staying in Galway the night before, we had a 1.5 hour drive to the pier in Doolin but GPS took us straight to our destination. The guys in the office got us checked... More

We went one-way from Inis Mor to Doolin and it was a pleasant trip in which it is possible to see the other island and the Cliffs of Moher from the sea, also. The crew was very kind and once ashore in Doolin, the director of the company took us to our hotel with his car. Very kind of you... More

Ola Danilo Thank you for your lovely comments, it sounds like you were using the service to Doolin after spending a night or two on Inis Mor before continuing to Doolin. This is a popular option with our passengers, particularly if they are travelling without a car. Good to know you found our crew helpful and I will be sure... More

The small ferry cruises the waters around the Cliffs of Moher. It's not for anyone who gets even a little seasick. The waves are rough in August. However, it's a great way to get a different perspective of the cliffs from the bottom up and it shouldn't be missed.

Hi JMF24A Thank you for your review and feedback. It's a pity the sea was not calm for you, if only we could control the ocean..Sometimes this is part of the thrill of being on a boat! But I am glad that you appreciated the spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher from the sea and I would have to... More

A great way to see the coastline of Ireland and visit the ARAN ISLANDS. Kids will love it. The ferry does stop at all the islands.

Hi Annette Thanks so much for the great review! Sounds like you enjoyed your trip to Inis Mor. Sounds like you might have taken the later ferry to Inis Mor? We have a departure at 1pm, for overnight or one-way passengers which stops at Inis Oirr for 1 hour 30 minutes, giving passengers time to see this island before departing... More
