Myself and my husband took the ferry from Doolin and were pleasantly surprised to see a beautiful dolphin coming right up to the pier, showing off to the crowds, enjoying all the attention. We were taken firstly to the Aran Island of Inisheer which was lovely, a very pretty island and then on our way back we were brought up to the cliffs of Moher. The journey of to the cliffs of Moher was very exciting, the sea was a little bit choppy which made it even more fun. We stood at the very front of the boat which was exilarating! I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised to be brought so close to the cliffs. The view of hundreds of nesting puffins on a huge rock jutting up out of the ocean was breath-taking ... like jumping straight into a nature documentary. I have never experienced anything like it. I thoroughly recommend this trip.

We used this service for a short journey across the atlantic ocean to inisheer and back along the cliffs of Moher. Going across, the weather was perfect for the sailing but returning was an absolute disaster. According to the captain, the winds had picked up after we had started our journey and we were probably all thinking "then why did you set sail?" anyway, as we were crossing it started To get uncomfortably rough, some people were starting to feel seasick, as we approached the cliffs the captain switched off the engines and made a turn, this made it worse , people were starting to vomit as the boat started to rock from one side to the other. I swear it felt like it took forever for us to get from the cliffs to Doolin. We eventually got there in the end. At least we got to visit inisheer and see the cliffs. Coming back we should have gone straight to Doolin. It would have been a lot shorter. I'll tell you something very funny, when were approaching Doolin, there were still passenger boats departing, as we passed them, we held up some of the sick bags and waved, haha:)

These guys did a terrific job; clean boat, good service, on time and overall great experience. This is a must trip for those visiting the west of Ireland.Of the three Aran Islands, would recommend Inis Oirr, the smallest and least commercialized of the three islands.

They have added boat tour of Cliffs of Moher. It was wonderful. A completely different/better view of the cliffs. They got really close so everyone could get lots of pictures.

We also took ferry to Inis Eirr. The sea was very rough that day and they made sure everyone was safe and arrived as close of on time as possible. They changed boats we were to take in order to make sure everyone was safe. They altered the route in order to make the trip smoother. I love the rocking of the boat.

Misty start to the day turned into a beautiful one. Long journey out to the third island but island is amazing when got there. Great to hire out bikes and just cycle around to take in the sights. We were pushed for time because of the boat schedule as it was only a day trip but still worth it. Must do for anybody holidaying in the area.
