Make your way to Doolin's pier about 30 minutes prior to departure and board the boat for the 20-minute journey to the Cliffs of Moher. As you sail, listen to recorded audio commentary on the history and geology of the cliffs, created over years of relentless pounding by the waves of the wild Atlantic Ocean.

As the boat approaches the UNESCO-listed cliffs, get your camera ready for views of the 800-foot (200-meter) rock shelves. An Bhreannan Mor, the largest sea stack, is best appreciated from a boat. Look out for puffins and thousands of other sea birds that nest on the rocky shelves.

After about 20 minutes of cruising past the cliffs' seascape, return to Doolin pier.

A boat tour along the famous Cliffs of Moher allows visitors cliffside views that are much more dramatic than from the land. Set sail along the Atlantic coast from Doolin, keeping an eye out for the resident puffins and snapping epic photo ops of the cliffs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Book your cruise ahead of time to avoid disappointment over sold-out sailings.

  • Best possible views of the Cliffs of Moher from a boat
  • Audio commentary explains the geology and history of the rock formations
  • Dramatic photo ops of the cliffs and the nesting seabird colonies
  • One-hour cruise time leaves plenty of time to visit the cliffs from land

We traveled to Ireland the last week in August, and planned to take a one hour boat cruise to see the Cliffs of Moher from the water. When we stopped at a visitor center on the way to the marina where the boats for the...More

Great response on short notice

When we were in Ireland, one in the party became ill, and we had to cancel on-line the day of the trip. In doing so, I wanted to make sure they knew they could add three more passengers since we couldn't make it. In response,...More

Bit of a tub but does the job

Most reviews talk about the cliffs and islands and not the ferry and the company. There was plenty of parking at the site which costs a couple of euros. We got our ticket from a tourist information office before which was simple and painless. When...More

Nice trip despite the bad weather

It is a bit disorganized. You buy a ticket for one tour and are sent on another. But it is a nice trip. There is no information provided during the trip as to what you are seeing.

Head east out of Galway and take N67. This road will take you south, then west (around the eastern end of Galway Bay). Follow the signs to Doolin and the pier.
