We enjoyed this ferry ride to inisheer and back. The ride was very smooth. The only problem is figuring out which boat is with which company.

We deliberately went with this one as they were recommended especially for rougher seas. We were not disappointed. Euro20 round trop to the island. Also do Cliff Trips.

Excellent close up views of the Cliffs of Moher giving an appreciation that could not be had from walking on the cliff top.Very interesting and informative commentary from the captain.

I think the ferries are weather specific. Storms roll in quickly, so you will just need to check in and see how your day is looking. Do take the ferry to the Aran island.
I am trying to book a ferry for the end of June to the Arran islands for a three day stay. The web pages are not giving me an option to do this. I do not want to risk not been able to get on a boat on the day.
