Itinerary
Make your own way to Doolin Pier in time for a 10am departure and use your prepaid ferry tickets to head straight aboard. Set sail on the around 30-minute journey to Inis Oírr, the smallest of the Aran Islands, and enjoy spectacular views across Galway Bay as you cruise out across the Atlantic.

On arrival in Inis Oírr, you’ll have a few hours to explore the island at your own pace. Perhaps hire a bike, join a mini-bus tour, or ride a pony trap (own expense) around the island, and take in sights such as O’Brien’s Castle, St. Kevin’s Church, the Plassey Shipwreck, and the Lighthouse.

Make your way back to the pier in time for the return ferry at 1.45pm and cruise back beneath the towering Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland’s most impressive natural wonders. As you glide beneath the 700-foot (214-meter) high cliffs and the Great Sea Stack (Branaunmore), look out for sea birds such as puffins, guillemots, and razorbills.

Your tour ends back at Doolin Pier around 3pm.

Please note: Ferries run daily from March to October. All sailings are weather dependent so please contact us in advance should you have any queries about sailing conditions.

Great boat but crowded

The gentlemen that run the operation are professionals but there were so many customers on the boat we couldn’t really see the cliffs. A lot of pushing and shoveling on the boat line.

Would have been a 5 star 🌟 but for the parking.

Great tour both the island and the cliffs. However if I hadn't booked in advance I would have turned around and went somewhere else. The parking facilities are appalling. We arrived half hour before the tour to allow for parking etc. We drove around and...More

Nice Day Trip

Fun cycling around the island, and a couple of nice small restaurants to have lunch and a beer. Beautiful views of the cliffs on the way back from island.

As soon as you get off of the ferry at the pier, the vans, bike rentals and horse carts meet you. Cannot miss them.
