Great ferry to the Aran islands. A little confusing on the pier for the return trip home. All ferries use the same pier and nothing is marked! be sure and check the weather as the ferries will not run in bad weather. we got lucky, perfect weather. great trip.

I cannot say enough good things about this company. They ensured that my wheelchair-bound father made it safely aboard and was able to experience the breathtaking Cliffs of Mohr with the rest of the family. Additionally, the guide was warm, entertaining, and knowledgeable.

Do yourself a favor: skip the Doolin2Aran office and the one next to it on the right and go to the O'Brien line on the left. These "enterprising" fellows employ a nice bait and switch to just get you to buy the ticket and make the sale: no regard for how much waiting time or inconvenience. The entire setup at... More

Doolin2Aran bent over backwards to help us out. - We'd prebooked 4 trips with Doolin2Aran Ferries wanting to visit all 3 Aran islands over a weekend, but when we arrived on Friday, we learnt that there was going to be no boats on Sunday as the forecast was rough and the ferry companies couldn't be certain about Saturday/Monday sailings either!...

Our boat left right on time with a reasonable number of passengers. We were on the noon trip to the Cliffs. The ride out was fairly quick and great fun, even if we did get somewhat wet and had to go back inside until we made it to the Cliffs. We spent a good amount of time idling around so... More

We had the pleasure of sailing with Doolin2Aran ferries last Tuesday the 12th over to Inis Oirr for an amazing few hours exploring the island. On our return trip we took a little tour round the Cliffs Of Moher. It was an amazing sight to see them in all their majestic glory. The staff on the boat, we travelled on... More

They put 55ish on their boat, you cant go up top and it felt overbooked. It's a no frills boat out to the cliffs, listened to a recording and cruise back. It would have been nice if they would narrate on the way out. 10 less people would have been ok, atleast we would have could been able to stand... More
