This is the best ferry company to travel with from Doolin. They offer great prices and a wonderful service. The staff will load any bikes that you’re bringing and there’s no limits on baggage or buggies etc. It’s on time every time, very comfortable, enjoyable and the most convenient way of getting to any of the Aran Islands. They also do a tour to the Cliffs of Moher which offers stunning views from the coastline.
Thanks for making our visit to Inis Mor so enjoyable.

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!
