My husband and I spent an afternoon watching the ferries dock at the pier. It was quite windy and watching the ferries rolling in on the waves was fascinating!

The Doolin Pier offers great views of Inis Oirr and the Cliffs of Moher. Fro the pier one can take a boat to the Aran Islands and/or see the Cliffs of Moher from the sea.

Doolin Pier offers a distant view of the Cliffs of Moher from an interesting rocky harbor. So windy! Pay parking. Steps from Gus O'Connor's.
