Took the Doolin Ferry ride for a different view of the Cliffs of Moher. We had done the Cliff walk from town and were amazed at these beautiful cliffs. Our experience with customer service was fantastic as they allowed us to board the boat late after first telling us to wait for next boat trip. It was a windy day... More

My aunt and I booked a trip online to see the Cliffs of Mohr. We arrived at the dock early, ate, and looked at the waves. By the time we walked over to the pier, the water was very choppy. Several passengers departing the boat said they had gotten sick. Since my aunt has become ill before on rough waters... More

The crew was very friendly. It was a very enjoyable ride to the Arian islands and allowed for beautiful views of the cliffs.

The charismatic chase, a skip and a jump, and Cathal was at our window inviting us to jump on board the Happy Hooker. His enthusiasm was infectious, and he quoted us a good price for a trip the next day. Upon our return two days later and to our astonishment, our now smaller group was not only recognized but given... More

Loved our trip out to Inis Oirr with Cliffs Cruise. The ferry guys were great and so helpful! Chris, Joel and John helped me with my jammed up phone--going completely out of their way to help. And, so funny too. Thanks guys!! Wear your hat and a warm jacket--you'll need it. BEAUTIFUL.

Turned up at Doolin Pier, late in the afternoon on a grey day. Observed the Jack B returning from a trip. We were persuaded by a man who had definitely kissed the Blarney Stone to embark on the last trip of the day. The sea was very calm and the boat was at best only a third full, so we... More

Great team of people to deal with. The team takes you to the smaller less populated island but the prettiest of the three. Locals then act as tour guides and give you an intimate view of their world including the shipwreck with the most spectacular views. The local pub also has the absolute best seafood chowder!! The return trip back... More

On the day the weather was wet and windy and the tour was late leaving Doolil Pier.before we left we were given the opportunity to opt out due to the sea conditions. The crossing was very rough and many people got sea sick. When we reach Inisheer the harbour dolphin was there... More
