I went for the combination Inis Oirr/Cliffs Cruise trip from Doolin. The boarding was well-organised and efficient, and there was the option of sitting inside the boat, outside upstairs or downstairs. The crossing took about a half an hour. The island itself was gorgeous, with two different walking loops marked and the option of horse and carriage rides or bike... More

We booked (and pre-payed) online a boat trip under the Cliffs of Moher with this company. The departure was scheduled at 3.00 pm, but we had to wait until 3.30 for another boat due to overbooking, yet the second boat was crowded too and we hardly could have a seat. The sea was very rough, we all got wet (I... More

We enjoyed our trip to Inis Mor. The boat we were on was not fancy but it did the job and got us to Inis Mor safely

This is one of two or three companies operating from the Doolin Pier to take you on Cliffs of Moher cruises and also out to the Aran Islands. PROS: 1) They make many different runs throughout the day, so wait times and availability are generally pretty good. 2) Prices very reasonable. 3) Parking is ample and reasonably priced. 4) We...

We took the ferry on our return trip from the Islands. It was a nice relaxing trip after a full day on the islands.

This mediocre rating isn't so much about the quality of the ferry but more so to this being a small ferry on a fairly turbulent sea. Fortunately we were only going to Inis Oirr which is about a 40 minute trip. The crew was very good and if anything we tended to be ahead of schedule.

I'm not sure how to review this trip. The boat got us there and back, all in one piece. The trip was memorable because of the rough seas, water sloshing across the decks, my getting soaked, a few barfy passengers. It is no luxury liner, but a tough working boat with a crew that seemed to know what they were... More

Travelled to Inis Oírr on a gorgeous day, and had a magical few hours there cycling around the island. The ferry trip we used comes back via the Cliffs of Moher which gives some spectacular views. Well worth doing. Can be choppy though!

As weather not brilliant we were driving around and came to Doolin Pier. What a sight, I have never seen such high waves with the spray and different shades of blue in the water. Watched for a while. We would have caught a ferry over to Aaran Islands but too nervous as sea looked very rough. Worth going to see.

The ferry boat is spartan, but efficient. The seating is erratic and many must stand. The ride is fun. This trip and boat is below the standard of ferries elsewhere. But all in all, it does work and the ferry ran pretty much on time. Keep in mind that you will have a shortage of parking spaces and you must... More
