Doolin Ferry to Aran Islands & 1 Hour Cliffs of Moher Boat Tours

Go to the Aran Islands or see the Cliffs of Moher with Bill O Brien's THE original Doolin Ferry Co. on the DOOLIN EXPRESS. This is the most comfortable, fastest and newest boat on Irish waters with unique anti sea-sickness technology.

There are multiple daily departures from No. 1 Doolin Pier to each of the three Aran Islands, and hourly Cliffs of Moher cruises from 12 noon. 

You can also combine an island boat trip with a cliffs cruise for a real ‘bucket list’ experience on the Wild Atlantic Way, 7 days a week March to November. 

Highlights include:
  • Fast, stable and comfortable boat between Doolin and Aran
  • Unique anti sea sickness technology. Wifi, charging and snack bar onboard
  • FREE maps of each Aran Island to download from
  • Choose between islands, full or half day trips for the ultimate bucket list experience
