Full description

Explore Inis Oírr with this ferry cruise from Doolin. Hop aboard and take in sea views before disembarking for free time on the island. Take the ferry back to see the Cliffs of Moher, O'Brien's Tower, and the An Branán Mór sea stacks. Hop aboard the spacious ship in Doolin and admire the views of the shore on your way to Inis Oírr. Have several hours of free time to check out the island's medieval ruins, seal colonies, shipwreck, and lighthouse with options to walk, rent a bicycle, hire a horse and cart or take a minibus tour.

Depart the island for the return trip in the afternoon. Pass by the Cliffs of Moher's highest point. Sail beneath the famous O'Brien's Tower. Listen to onboard commentary and facinating stories that dive further into the sights. Circle back passing by An Branán Mór, the great sea stack, which is home to Ireland’s largest mainland nesting bird colony. Get up close birds such as puffins, guillemots, and razorbills.

Capture pictures of the the sea cave that was used to film 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' and the famous surfing spot 'Aill na Searrach' where the 'Aileen' wave is caught.

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.

I loved this trip! One star less because they skipped part of the return trip linked to bad weather (I was already soaked and I didn't care about the weather). The ferry company is great & everything was right on time. Please note you are just buying ferry tickets. Hire a bike on Inis Oirr (around 10 euro) or prebook a trip with one of the horse-rides if you can. It took me one hour to find a guy who would take me on one of these trips on the spot.

It was a fantastic time!! All the people working for Doolin Ferry are amazing. My wife & I are on our honeymoon, and they did everything to make sure we had the best time. Adrian in the front office was especially accommodating. Inis Oirr was so much fun. Make sure to take a horse & buggy, stop by the Aran sweater shop, and definitely go into the cute Irish tavern/bar right of the dock. Great food, drinks, service, & atmosphere. And you won’t find a better chance to see the cliffs of moher than on the ferry! Kudos to everyone at Doolin Ferry!
