We hiked the top edge as well as the ocean view cliff tour. These folks are courteous, professional and over the top helpful guiding you to other local sites (eg. Stonecutter for lunch). The ferry crew was safe, the seating was spacious, and the crews happy banter was perfect! They were very professional and pointed out the “Harry Potter Cave”, O’Briens tower, and lots more. Special thanks to Eileen at he counter, who was a fountain of knowledge and helpful beyond expectation. Hope her employer sees this and gives here a night out on the town on the company credit card!! Thanks to the Captain & crew, and Nial, Noell too.

Excellent day touring the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher. A very nice crew and trip over. Be sure to have some of the fresh crab and lobster near the dock on the Aran Island stop. It’s fabulous!

Took a tour from Galway that included a bus tour, touring cliffs of moher, and a boat trip to one of the islands, Inis Oirr. Our guide was Tom and he was just the best. He drove the bus, was a hilarious narrator/guide (we were laughing hysterically at his commentary throughout the day) and basically did anything and everything to make the day go smoothly. The ocean was too rough to go on the boat by the cliffs (canceled by the captain) and be warned: the boat ride was a rough one. As I said, there were rough waters that day and that boat ride was not for the faint of heart. We all got soaked and had to hold on tight. The group agreed it was fun after the fact (except for the one who got seasick), but if rickety boats scare you this might not be the best choice.
