We were picked up in Galway and dropped off in Doolin. The driver acted as a tour guide and gave us insights on towns we came to and the local area. We got off the bus and was directed on which ferry to go to. Went to Inisheer (Inis Oirr) and had a great time exploring the smallest island. We... More

Definitely worth the trip to the Aran Islands. Ferry service was fast and reasonably priced. Lovely views across the water.

We had a wonderful time in our trip to Inis Mor but the part that we will always remember is returning and Yvonne telling us to jump on the Cliffs of Moher trip. Fantastic company, friendly people...highly recommend

We enjoyed everything about cruising on the Happy Hooker from Doolin to Inis Mor. Water was rough at the Doolin pier when we traveled in mid-October. We had originally booked on Doolin Ferry Co/O'Brien line (I know, its confusing). They cancelled our trip without telling us, and led us to believe that no ferries were leaving the pier that day...

I came to the Cliffs of Moher after dreaming of them for years and this cruise really helped that fantasy/dream become a reality. It was a great for a boat ride; I was fortunate enough to come on a day that the sea was calmer. It was overcast and a tad foggy while we were on the cliffs so the... More

Best boat ride ever. You go out for an hour roundtrip in rough see. The boat has 2 places - inside where the weak are getting sick and - outside where the rough ones make super nice pictures of the cliffs. The boat stops for 10 min so you can easily shoot your camera. Boat ride is definitely worth the... More

We landed up at Doolin our very first day in Ireland and thanks to the encouragement of the woman in the tourist office took the ferry to Inisheer. The Aran Islands weren't even on my radar when planning this trip, but very glad we had the opportunity for this visit. Especially being off-season (October) we could enjoy the solitude and... More

The seas were rough when we went out and came back in. Many people vomited from the rocking of the boat. I had a panic attack as the boat was rocking quite far from side to side. I grew up on boats but they were much larger than the "Happy Hooker" we took out to Inis Oirr (and supposed to... More

We took an early ferry to Inisheer, the closest and smallest of the Aran Islands. The ferry was on time, comfortable, the crew was accommodating and friendly, answering questions and engaging. On the way back, we cruised the Cliffs of Moher and the captain made several passes so that everyone had a chance to take great photos. Recommend highly.
