As a family of 4 (two teens 15 and 13), we took an express ferry from Doolin to Inisheer (O'Brien's I think) after a local recommended it. We weren't sure if we wanted the half day or the full day option but ended up taking...More

A well traveled Irish woman told me that Inisheer (Inis Oerr) is her favorite Aran Island. So we took the ferry there and had a wonderful day. I recommend taking the horse drawn wagon to get an overview of the island. The wagons will be...More

We chose Inisheer for our Aran Islands experience and spent most of our five hours there walking. We started up the hill to the castle and then headed southwest almost to the lighthouse. We then walked along the coast in the direction of the pier...More

Our visit to the Aran Islands was one of the most memorable attractions on our recent 12-day car trip to Ireland. O'Brien's Ferry took us out to the islands and dropped us off on the main Aran Island. The weather was sunny, warm and spectacular!...More

My husband and I took the ferry over to the Island. We don’t like tourist full areas so we walked through the village instead. We were greeted by two friendly dogs who came on our long walk. They showed us their favourite spots and led...More

The smallest of the three Aran Islands, but is more than worth the trip. Shortest boat ride, with a tour of the Cliffs of Mohar after your visit to the island. Fabulous guided cart tours with drivers we’ll versed in the island knowledge. Look for...More
