Cliffs of Moher boat trip from Doolin

Someone had asked about the boat trip to the Cliffs of Moher... Mid-October we went using Doolin2 Aran Ferries and would highly recommend this outfit. I'm not sure how long they run to the Cliffs (or to the Aran Islands) or if it's through winter, however, even tho' the seas were a bit rough, the trip was comfortable enough and it was well worth it to see the cliffs from that vantage point.

When we returned we went to use the restrooms and spoke to a guy named Joe who we'd bought the tickets from. We were obviously a bit chilled and he gave us a glass of Scotch...warmed us right up!

The ferries operate March to November weather permitting. I personally prefer O'Brien Line but that's due to them being the only ones to respond when I sent out a blanket email a couple of years ago. Customer service will always win favour.

We took the O'Brien ferry to Inis Oirr in early October and were planning to sty onboard after the trip back for the cliffs tour. The water was very rough... water was washing over the outside decks where we were standing to try to get fresh air. I know this doesn't bother some people, and others actually seem to enjoy it. But if you're at all prone to seasickness, look at the seas very carefully before you commit, because wow...we were miserable. But even through our misery we could tell that the views were gorgeous, and we did enjoy our time on Inis Oirr.
