This is a must do trip from Galway. It is about an hour bus ride and then an hour ferry ride to get to the island. The ferry service was excellent and a very smooth ride.

If you see it is rough, take your Gravol and sit at the back of the boat! Fairly quick trip. Take more than one day on the islands.

I've tried two different Ferry Services to the Aran Islands and this is the one I prefer. The boats are larger and cleaner, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Very reliable service.

Maybe we just went on an exceptional day, but this was one of the smoothest ferry rides I've ever had. So, kudos to the boat and crew! My only advice to travelers is to get on the boat as early as you can to get...More

Professional staff. The boat could do with a bit of an upgrade but overall just what you'd expect. We had one stop on the way to the main island -- the trip is about 90 minutes each way.

I normally hire a bicycle, but there is also bus tours and horse and carriage tours.

We went from Doolin which stops at all the Islands so you can get off at whichever stop you want. I'm not sure where the Rossaveel Ferry stops but I do know it takes 1.5hr from Doolin and only about 45 mins from Galway... More

I'm sure it depends on the time of year -- if you're there during the summer months, I'd get a ticket in advance. We were there last week (bought our ticket in advance). No one had to stand but almost each seat was taken.
