The trip to Inis mor was brilliant left exactly at 10am. We hired bikes on the island didn't have enough time to see all sites will return in the future and stay on the lsland. The ferry left on time going back at 4pm. We understood we would be going back by the cliffs of moher. We got off the ferry in Doolin to be told another ferry was taking us out to the cliffs of moher but this ferry was running late and we would have to wait 45 min we declined this offer. To be fair to the guys running the ferries they said they would get another company to take us out if we wanted to wait. It was our choice not to wait. Otherwise we had a very enjoyable experience.
