We just returned from a one hour cruise from Doolin to Cliffs of Moher. It was quite rough on the way out but what a fabulous time we had. The cliffs are so impressive and we went quite close in. It is great to see the cliffs from the land side but a truly awesome experience from the sea looking... More

I came with 2 girlfriends and we really enjoyed the boat tour. The weather was gorgeous but for some reason there was still a haze by the Cliffs of Moher which didn't provide for the clearest pictures. I felt like 1 hour was the perfect amount of time. One of the men who worked on the boat was kind enough... More

Hi Jackie R Thank you for taking the time to post a review. The crew are very enthusiastic about helping passengers make the most of their trip - Puffins are tricky little fellas, not so easy to spot unless you know where to look! Kind regards Joan More

We booked the tickets for the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher, it was a great experience and it gives you plenty of time on the island to visit and have lunch. The staff was very helpful. Don't miss Stiophan (Steven) and his tractor guided tour when you get on the island!

Hi bmonica2015 Glad you enjoyed your day on Inis Oirr. The combination tour to the island and the cliffs is our most popular option, gives you the best of both worlds! Kind regards, Joan More

A windy, rainy, wet day in Ireland (fairly standard) was made very enjoyable by the team at Doolin2Aran Ferries. All 4 of us had a great day out on Inis Oirr and the recommendations from the crew on the ferry on what to do while on the island was very helpful.

Choppy waters but beautiful, the island is a lovely walk and cruising past the cliffs was breathtaking

Glad you enjoyed the trip @JohanneComtois - the cliffs cruise is particularly good in spring when the birds are nesting. Hope you saw some Puffins! All the best Joan More

I've travelled to the Aran Islands last July using Doolin 2 Aran ferries and it was a pleasure to travel with them. I have a disability which made me wary regarding getting on and off the ferry, but the staff were very reassuring and couldn't do enough for me. Really made the whole trip enjoyable and can't thank them enough.... More

We had been to the cliffs several... More

We used the Ferry to go to the Aran Islands- Inis Oirr. first. Our trip out in the am was fine- space to sit and reliable ferry to the islands. We did not rent a bike or a jaunting car, but we still had plenty of time to walk around and see the sites. At the end, we even found... More

Finding a reliable ferry service was a dog-eat-dog environment and I was wearing Milk-Bone underwear! Seriously, those guys were as cutthroat as the hucksters in a Mexican street fair. But we survived, actually got on the right boat and had a good time at the Aran Islands. The return trip across the Cliffs of Moher was majestic and awe-inspiring. All... More
