Did the cliffs of mother cruise, booked online and paid by PayPal through their site. Staff were friendly at the docks. Views were fantastic and we had a dolphin swim all the way out with us.

Unbeknown to me and my girlfriend, we ended up getting a ride to Doolin's port by no other than the owner of Doolin Ferry, Bill O'Brien. He was nice enough to take us to view a closer look at the Cliffs of Moher which was fog covered from our B&B location in Doolin. We had asked him the prediction of clear weather for the following day and he said" hop in and get a closer look at the port of Doolin." His very charming daughter gave us a ride back after we viewed the cliffs for at least one hour. We didn't take the boat tour(no time) but I can't say enough how accomodating and gracious this family is. Her only request was we post the experience and yes, this is Irish hospitality at it's best!!!!!!

Thanks to Bill and his staff for a fantastic trip over and back to Inis Oirr. The tide was out on our return journey so we had to transfer from the big boat to the small boat to reach the pier in Doolin, kids loved that bit. Definitely a must do if you're in the Doolin area.

Very rough sea and I even got sick. We did not get the boat we had ticket for which was bigger and would probably have been more comortable. Same for the return trip, but then the sea had calmed so it was ok. Bought ticket for combination trip, but that didn't happen for some reason.

Wonderful people, excellent crew, fab overall service. Real value for money. Visited the Islands and Cliffs wow. Really professional and friendly, warm and genuine, showing the best of Irish to visitors. Excellent facilities on board. Seeing Dusty up close just before departure was a bonus. Prompt timely service no waiting around but never felt we were being hurried. Put this trip and Bill and his team on your to do list!
