“Like a clown car”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Our group of four took the ferry over to Inishmore for the day and were astounded by the number of people they were able to fit inside. On our trip back we thought for sure that the line of people waiting to board wouldn't make it on. They did. Comfortable seats and snacks available if you want them. Thanks for the ride to the beautiful island!

“Rough waters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The weather was stormy, yet not unsafe. A little bumpy but still an impressive trip. Nice to be inside such a large vessel.

“good short boat trip to Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The next day’s plan was a boat trip out to the Aran Islands. The conditions were way too choppy for Ed, so Joan spent the afternoon exploring the most picturesque of the three islands, Inisheer, while Ed spent the day on land visiting the quaint fishing village of Kinvarra and its medieval castle. Joan spent 3 hours there easily roaming around, great sites

“Great trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Aran Island Ferries is a super way to start your visit to the Aran Islands. The ferries are fast and comfortable with a friendly staff. Refreshments can also be purchased on board. Travelling time is approximately 40 minutes. During busy times you need to get to the pier early for the return sailing as the ferry fills up fast. The shuttle bus from the center of Galway is also an excellent service.

“Rocky ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Our experience was pretty wild. We were bouncing around like corks even though the boat is of pretty good size. Luckily no one in our group got sick! It was great!
