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.
