Inis Mor- Aran Islands ferry from Doolin
From US$28,92
The Aran Islands are one of Ireland’s most unique destinations, but most visitors only admire them from afar. This round-trip ferry service from Doolin to Inis Mór gives you the whole day to explore independently and visit sights such as Dun Aengus, the Black Fort, the Seven Churches, and Clochan na Carraige.
What to Expect
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 1-hour and 15-minute journey to Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands, and enjoy spectacular views of Galway Bay and the Cliffs of Moher as you cruise out across the Atlantic.

On arrival in Kilronan Harbour, you’ll have the entire day 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 Dún Aonghasa (Dun Aengus), the Aran Heritage Centre, Dún Duchathair (The Black Fort), Na Seacht dTeampaill (The Seven Churches), Teaghlach Einne (House of St. Enda), and Clochan na Carraige.

You could also shop for the islands’ famous Aran Sweaters at the Aran Sweater Market in Kilronan, spot wildlife such as seals and sea birds along the coastal cliffs, and tuck into a typical Irish lunch (own expense) at one of the harbor’s many pubs, restaurants and cafés.

Make your way back to Kilronan Harbour in time for the return ferry at 4pm sharp. Your tour ends back at Doolin Pier around 5.30pm.

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.

Rough, but enjoyable excursion!

We took O'Brien's Doolin Ferry Co. excursion to Inis Mor for an over-night trip and booked the ferry the day before departing, carefully watching the weather reports for the day of our trip. Although the weather was clear, the wind made the sea quite rough...More

Access to the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands

My fiancée and I took this ferry from Doolin and sailed right under the Cliffs of Moher. Even though there was low visibility due to the weather, we were able to take some great pictures. We even saw some dolphins! The ferry eventually took us...More
