“Fantastic. Amazing trip. If you do nothing else in this life then go to the Aran Islands. Its truley magical.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

We went on a boat trip with Doolin2Aran Ferries to the Aran Islands.
We went with a guy called Donie and his brother PJ Garrihy.
They were really friendly and told us loads about the Island. There are 3 islands and we went to the closest one, Inisheer, ( sorry if its the wrong spelling). It took about half an hr.
And when we arrived, it was every bit as lovely as the guys had told us about.
We couldnt believe how beautiful the island is. You feel like you are in another world.
We went on the boat at 1 and returned at 5. Please please try this trip out with Doolin2Aran ferries, it truley spectacular. It was so good we then done another trip with them. It was a tour round the cliffs. I will post another review about that one. Again that was fabulous. Dont forget your camera when you go on either of these tours.UNFORGETABLE....

“Thank you so much for lending your phone, helped me so much!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2011

I was driving around the west coast of ireland when i really needed a phone to contact a friend in dublin. went in to i think Doolin2Aran Ferries or if it was tourist information of Doolin to ask if they had a payphone or something similar. This man working there just asked me for the number and used his own cellphone. for me that meant so much as it bsaved my day and i didnt need to worry anymore that day about where to saty and could enjoy my travelling through the countryside. it meant so much for me so thank you so much! (i hope this thank gets through to this man!)

The crew was very professional. Some people did not fare well with the rough seas. Boat was clean and in good repair.

“Thank you DOOLIN2ARAN FERRIES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

We travelled to the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher Cruise with Doolin2Aran Ferries on Monday last 25th April and what an amazing experience.
We purchased the tickets at Hotel Doolin for 35euro for the combination trip and the person there was most helpful.
The weather was good and we had the the most amazing day for 35euro.
I will be back.
Thank you Ireland

“BEWARE of their high prices”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2011

We bought our tickets at the Doolin2Aran ticket office located in Hotel Doolin only to find out later their prices there are much much higher than the other company on the pier. We paid €35 each for tickets while the other company was offering €20 for the same return trip. Shop around before you buy!!!!

Boat was small and unsteady as well.
