A good mainstay ferry to the Aran Islands, especially from Doolin since the double large boat slips were built a couple of years ago. No more small boats and wading into the water to catch your lift. The operators share passengers, even if you booked...More

We wanted to take a trip to the Aran Islands. Weather would not allow this. We instead took it to the bottom of the Cliffs of Moher. Had a great time.

Very accommodating and friendly crew. Ferry ride to islands was wonderful. The extended trip to view Cliffs of Moher from below was fabulous. Great commentary and overall knowledge of the area. A trip not to miss!

Enjoyed our trip out to Aran Islands and tour of cliffs with this company. There is another company at same docks but these seemed to be newer boats. Great crews and clean boats.

We took the boat at 17.15 to the one hour visit to moher cliffs. It began at 17.20 and at 17.55 we were already at the pier. So, by far, not one hour as stated.

I've seen the Cliffs of Moher lots of times. Watching them from the sea was a wonderfil experience. It's really something to do, especially if you know the place quite well.

I think the ferries are weather specific. Storms roll in quickly, so you will just need to check in and see how your day is looking. Do take the ferry to the Aran island.

Hi there, thank you for your question. You may certainly stay overnight on the Islands. You can stay for as long as you like, and the return fare is still the same. When you choose your Islands, for example Inis Mor... More
