The Aran Islands & The Cliffs Cruise

Our most comprehensive tour yet!

Join Galway Tour Company to visit The Aran Islands and see the Cliffs of Moher like never before.

Departing Galway Coach Station at 9:00 am

We will guide you south along the Wild Atlantic Way and into the lunar-like Burren region. From there we’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.

From here you’ll be in the safe hands of The Doolin Ferry Company accompanied by your guide. Inisheer is only a 30 minute sailing from Doolin and attractions include ancient churches and castles, one of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches, a modern playground and several pubs and cafes, lighthouses and shipwrecks! Take a pony and trap, hire a bicycle or stroll the peaceful boreens. The return journey, a guided cruise alongside the foot of the Cliffs of Moher, is a spectacular journey which puts the 214m high, 8 km long cliffs into perspective.

After returning to Doolin there will be a pause at the famous Gus O’Connor’s pub where you can purchase a hearty lunch before embarking on the next leg of the tour – to the top of The Cliffs! As a guest of Aran Tour Company, you will receive free entry to the cliffs and the eco-sensitive visitor centre. Take a stroll along the cliff edge and consider how tiny everything looks from above!

Once we depart the cliffs we 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
