The ferry journey from Doolin Pier to Kilronan Harbor on Inis Mór takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes.  The Aran Islands are believed to be an extension of the Burren Region in County Clare. The famous rocky landscape has helped to create its iconic image of an island divided by fields separated by winding stone walls.

A full day is needed to see the sights of this beautiful island.  The ferry will arrive at Kilronan harbor on Inis Mor. From this port, you can choose from several different options to explore the island. You may choose to hire a bicycle, take a mini bus tour or experience a horse and cart tour. More information on the tour options is available at the Kilronan Harbor area upon your arrival. The most popular attraction on this island is the famous ring fort, Dun Aengus. The magnificent fort is a semi-circular structure that rests on the edge of a high cliff rising 100 meters out of the Atlantic Ocean. It is the largest of the prehistoric ruins on the Aran Islands. It is a short 900 meter hike from the Visitor Center to the base of the fort. On arrival, it takes about 10 minutes to climb to the top of the fort. The fort consists of an inner court 50 meters across, and is surrounded by a wall 6 meters high and 5.5 meters thick at the base. Dún Aonghasa’s superb position and its structural perfection have prompted many experts to declare it one of the finest prehistoric monuments in Europe.

From Dublin: Cliffs of Moher, Kilmacduagh, and Galway Tour

6. From Dublin: Cliffs of Moher, Kilmacduagh, and Galway Tour

This is one of the best excursions that can be done from Dublin but, yes, it's time to get up early! To make the most of the day we will be picked up very early and from here, we will go to our first stop, Galway Plaza, where we will arrive after a two-hour drive. We will stop at The Galway Plaza for half an hour, enough time to stretch our legs, clear our heads a little for all those who have made the trip sleeping and have a coffee or a small breakfast to continue, now towards Kilmacduagh Abbey. Kilmacduagh Monastery is located on the outskirts of Gort. For an hour and a half, we will visit the different buildings, and our guide will tell us about their construction date, their usefulness and their most curious details. It is true that today the complex appears to be ruins, time, weather and looting have not been alien to this place, but, even so, here it is possible to recreate the medieval past of Ireland and take advantage of the visit to make an authentic trip in time that will take us to the time of the battles, the knights and the religion of this country. The ruins are only apparent, here what you see is pure history! One of the most striking constructions is the famous Kilmacduagh tower, a peculiar round and slightly inclined tower that boasts being the tallest Irish tower, neither more nor less than 34 meters. Our path continues to the Cliffs of Moher. Just the way to get to the Cliffs of Moher is fascinating, because this road, along the coast of the island, crosses The Burren National Park, with a lunar landscape that is fascinating. This is one of the main attractions and one of the essential visits in Ireland. We will walk, in a totally safe way (this warning is important especially for those who are sensitive to heights), 210 meters above the coast. We will appreciate the strength of a sea that marks the character of the island and its inhabitants so much. We will enjoy free time to explore the area. A good idea is to go to the visitor center to be able to organize what we most want to see. We will also have time to eat. One of the best tips for eating at the Cliffs of Moher is to bring your own picnic. In any case, there is a cafeteria here, but it usually has people and, sometimes, queues form that can take up a lot of time. From the Cliffs of Moher we will go to Galway. This is one of the most popular cities in Ireland and no wonder! We will meet the bohemian part of the country, with its joy, with the best Irish beer and, above all, with its music. We'll go through Shop Street, where we'll see the value of street music...and where we'll be able to do some shopping! Spend a day touring Ireland, from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher and take advantage of the trip to admire its landscapes and soak up the most fascinating Irish culture. Book now!

We had a fabulous time! The ferry ride over was smooth - no need for any type of motion sickness medicine. The pony cart was wonderful. We used Inis Mor Horse Carriage tour.. Our guide was Stephen and the horse was Rocky. Stephen grew up on Inis Mor so he was able to give us great insight into what life on the island was/is like. He asked us if we wanted to stop at different places (take a pic, go to the bathroom, get a coffee). He was friendly and patient with all of our questions.

This tour was great! I most enjoyed time spent exploring the Cliffs of Moher (even though it was rainy and windy) and the stories our guide Terence told throughout the bus ride. It was a long day as many other reviewers mentioned so come expecting that. Consider bringing cash, a rain jacket, snacks, water your phone charger, and something to read or a game to play to pass the train commute time. You'll enjoy it!

It is great, time on the island is just enough. Shipwreck is so cool! A note for the pass by the cliffs on the way back. Sit on the side closest to the walls. And when you get somewhat close block the space off or stand up as people will flock to the railings and stand right in front of those seated.

O’Brian was awesome. We got to see the cliff which he said only 38% get to see it. He’s very knowledgeable and made the tour a great experience . I recommend it.

The castle was very interesting. The cliffs offered stunning views. An excellent lunch was served at the little pub in Doolin.
