They got us where we needed to be safely. They had a lot of information while we admired the cliffs. You don't have many options to get to the island but this crew does great.

This was a great experience and worth the price. We first visited Inis Oirr Aran Island and saw wonderful sites and then went back on the boat to tour the Cliffs from the water level. So informative and gave us great perspective the next day went we walked the cliffs.

The cruise from Doolin was an amazing experience. To see the Cliffs of Moher from the water gives a different perspective of its beauty. However, be careful if you have motion sickness. Best not to go in a full stomach. It does get a bit rough when the boat gets near the cliffs. Personally, I don’t have this issue so thoroughly enjoyed myself submerging myself in the full experience. There are lovely restaurants and boutique shops up the road from the pier where one can enjoy some great food and shopping before leaving Doolin.

35" smooth ferry ride to Inis Orr. Only drawback was it's a full, crowded boat with very few people wearing masks.

The boat ride to Inis Oirr was beautiful and went smoothly. But we had booked a Inis Oirr-Cliffs of Moher combo ticket, only to find out that the Cliffs of Moher boat ride was cancelled without notice on the ship. Everyone that had booked it was confused as there was no email or anything about this sent to anyone before hand. Thankfully they did give a refund to people no questions asked at the desk, it was still ridiculous to not tell anyone in advance. However, I still had a positive experience otherwise and would recommend the ferry for visiting the Aran Islands from Doolin, and would recommend visiting the island of Inis Oirr to anyone as it was genuinally one of the most beautiful places I have seen.
