I booked a 2 tickets in the town up the road from Doolin for a Cliffs of Mohr jaunt that was leaving pretty quick. We immediately headed down to the pier just in time to see our boat sailing out of the harbor. The boat had left about 5 minutes early. However, one of the employees hanging out near the... More

The crew was very friendly. It was a very enjoyable ride to the Arian islands and allowed for beautiful views of the cliffs.

The charismatic chase, a skip and a jump, and Cathal was at our window inviting us to jump on board the Happy Hooker. His enthusiasm was infectious, and he quoted us a good price for a trip the next day. Upon our return two days later and to our astonishment, our now smaller group was not only recognized but given... More

Loved our trip out to Inis Oirr with Cliffs Cruise. The ferry guys were great and so helpful! Chris, Joel and John helped me with my jammed up phone--going completely out of their way to help. And, so funny too. Thanks guys!! Wear your hat and a warm jacket--you'll need it. BEAUTIFUL.

Turned up at Doolin Pier, late in the afternoon on a grey day. Observed the Jack B returning from a trip. We were persuaded by a man who had definitely kissed the Blarney Stone to embark on the last trip of the day. The sea was very calm and the boat was at best only a third full, so we... More

Hello Linda B, So you see, he might have been full of Blarney, but wasn't he right ;) He knew conditions were perfect and an opportunity not to be missed! Glad you enjoyed him, All the best Joan More

Great team of people to deal with. The team takes you to the smaller less populated island but the prettiest of the three. Locals then act as tour guides and give you an intimate view of their world including the shipwreck with the most spectacular views. The local pub also has the absolute best seafood chowder!! The return trip back... More

This sea trip we took was to Inisheer. On the day the weather was wet and windy and the tour was late leaving Doolil Pier.before we left we were given the opportunity to opt out due to the sea conditions. The crossing was very rough and many people got sea sick. When we reach Inisheer the harbour dolphin was there... More

This trip was well organised and the staff on the boat were very helpful. We had booked on line and there was no delay when we arrived. A suggestion would be to have toilets near the office rather than the long walk over to an old building.

My husband and I wanted to just take a tour of the Cliffs but were talked into doing the Aran Island and Cliffs at sunset. We left at 230 with Donnie and had the absolute best day! When we got to the island we took a tour with the horse and buggy and it was amazing! We got to see... More
