I was below deck heading out and got sick, sick, sick, and then spent my time in Inis Oirr (Inisheer) trying to recover. I got to ride up top on the way back, face in the wind and rain and I was fine.

The boat to Aran with Doolin2Aran is fantastic. The scenery is amazing. Guys on the boat were super helpful loading and unloading our bikes for us. I can’t recommend taking bikes enough! A brilliant way to see the island. Joe at the kiosk has the...More

This is the second boat I’ve taken in this area. The boat is disgusting, the trip is short, and if you don’t push to the front of the line to get a good spot, and you’re short, you’re screwed out of a good view. Refreshments...More

We'd have done well to inquire around, as this was the slow boat to Inis Oirr. It was late arriving in both directions, which put a dent in our afternoon (in addition to the travel time.) That said, I was impressed that our travel on...More

Fairly priced ferry to the Aran Islands. Tony was great! He loves his job and told us a lot of history in the area.

We had a great time on the Aran Island but not so much getting there. No fault of the ship or the company. They were terrific. Pick a quiet day and this is a great time.
