About Doolin Ferry with Bill O’Brien
The original founder, creator, and pioneer of the ferries from Doolin to The Aran Islands is our very own Bill O’Brien. It’s a story of chance and good old Irish creativity! Bill was a young local farmer who often visited the fine establishments of Doolin (the pubs of course). One fine summer’s day he met two American ladies who were visiting the area. Being able to see the Aran Islands from Doolin Pier they asked Bill:
Doolin2Aran Ferries, Sail with us to the Aran Islands or Cruise under the Cliffs of Moher.
We sail daily to the Aran Islands from Doolin from March to the end of October/early November. Visit the spectacular Dún Aengus fort on Inis Mor, get away from it all on Inis Meain or take a quick trip to the smallest one – the beautiful island of Inis Oirr.
Or take a Cruise under the Cliffs of Moher. Admire the scale and majestic beauty of the Cliffs of Moher on our voyage of discovery.
Or, better still, try both an island trip and a Cliffs of Moher cruise all in one day!
