The Aran Islands & The Cliffs Cruise

1. The Aran Islands & The Cliffs Cruise

You will be guided south along the Wild Atlantic Way and into the lunar-like Burren region. From there you'll head to the picturesque fishing village of Doolin where you’ll board the ferry to Inisheer (Inis Oirr) – the smallest and most vibrant of the Aran Islands. Explore Inisheer, home to ancient churches and castles, one of the Irelands most beautiful beaches, lighthouses, shipwrecks, and several cafes and pubs. You can take a pony and carriage, hire a bicycle or stroll the country roads. On your guided return journey, cruise alongside the foot of the Cliffs of Moher, a spectacular journey which puts the 214m high, 8km long cliffs into perspective. Stop for a hearty meal at a traditional local pub before arriving at the Cliffs of Moher. You will receive free entry to the cliffs and the eco-sensitive visitor center. Take a stroll along the cliff edge and consider how tiny everything looks from above! Once you depart the cliffs you will take the coast road home, following the Wild Atlantic Way before one last stop at the stunning Baby Cliffs in Ballyreen where you can walk atop the Burren. Return time in Galway is approx. 7:30 PM.

It was great! The Tour itself brought us to many beautiful spots in Ireland and our tour guide David O´Brian was just the best! On our drive to Doolin he told us some interesting facts about galway as the city we´re all staying in, about geolocial peculiarities, the weather, the people and several other kind of things. I would not only recommend that tour but also do it again anytime!

Lovely relaxing g trip lasting 90 minutes. Weather was dry and it was warm enough to stay out on the deck area. Very comfortable trip with plenty of information from the crew on the outward leg of the trip about the history both real and mytogical. Great trip.
