Ports

Doolin Pier Point, Ballaghaline, Co. Clare, Ireland
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.

Ferry to Inishmore

We took the ferry to Inishmore. Was a little confusing on where to go, the ticket we had did not work, but they reprinted one for us, very easily. The man who worked the boat was the unhappiest man we encountered this whole trip-the water was a bit rough, if you are sensitive to that, you might want to take something for it

Excellent boat ride with a beautiful view as you head out to the Aran Islands. The price was right, but the only thing to be aware of is that if you're heading out to the Innis Mor largest, farthest away island, this boat will stop at the other two islands 1st for a total trip time of 1 and 1/2 hrs. If you'd rather spend more time on the island, I would spend a little extra for the high speed, non-stop ferry straight to the Innis Mor.

The Inis Mor visit was wonderful. We enjoyed the scenery. The cliffs were just amazing. I got a better deal buying this tour package from Viator. Highly recommended.

Wonderful boat ride. Definitely leave Doolin, the people working there are all very friendly and helpful. Also there's a dolphin that follows the boat to the islands.
