For starters, we're not talking about a large ferry to get to Inis Oirr, and in a rough sea, the trip is not for the weak of stomach. We did fine, however, and spent a quaint, though damp, few hours on an island whose main...More

We took the late cruise expecting to see the setting sun illuminating the cliffs. We were blessed with a perfect day! The ride was not too choppy and the tour guide was excellent. We were on the top so could see well. I would have...More

O'Brien Line or Doolin2Aran Ferries for Cliffs cruise? (1 Reply)
Trying to decide which company to use for our Cliffs of Moher cruise - hubby really wants to see them from the sea, but I tend to get seasick... Both companies are similarly priced and leave at the same time, and we are just interested in the Cliffs cruise, not the one to Aran islands... I'm leaning towards O'Brien since their website says their ships are bigger and more stable than the smaller ships... but I read a review that said they had to take 10 person boats to get to the ship, which I...More
