The 360 Cliffs Tour

The 360 Cliffs of Moher walk and cruise is a spectacular journey above and below these world famous cliffs which tower over 700ft above the sea.

Our experience of Doolin2Aran Ferries has always been a fantastic one.
We truly believe that the best way to experience the Cliffs of Moher is by sea… as impressive as they are from above, the view from below is sublime!
The cruise also offers a much more personal experience with commentaries on the fauna, the geology and history of the region.
Everyone at Doolin2Aran Ferries is a pleasure to work with. We know that when we hire a private charter with Doolin2Aran Ferries, our clients are going to be in good hands and have a memorable and exciting experience… we don’t have to worry about a thing!

We took 8 girls to Inis Oirr as a birthday treat last April. We were a little nervous taking on a boat trip with so many children, but it was absolutely fine. The boats are big, spacious and safe and the crew were very helpful.
I would highly recommend this daytrip to Inis Oirr for families, we were all able to relax and enjoy it. It’s only a short boat trip to the island, there is a fantastic beach AND a brand new playground with a picnic area – what a perfect day!

Friendly staff, parking was easy and onsite, and service was fantastic! I look forward to my next trip! HANNAH – IRELAND
I realize a lot depends upon the weather but it was a very smooth ride. I booked ahead to save myself some time in the morning since we were driving a ways in. Super easy check in and the Doolin Pier has some pretty picture... LISA – USA
From start to finish dealing with this company has been a dream. 29 hens going to inis Mor for the night were accomodated wonderfully.There was a chance because of weather our boat back might have been cancelled coming home CATHY – IRELAND

"My husband and I hosted our wedding in Ireland in September of 2008.
We came over from the States, with 63 family and friends, and our entire group went on one of your ship tours of the Cliffs. The experience was the talk of the trip! Everyone had a wonderful time - the cruise was not only a great learning experience but a fabulous way to really appreciate the beauty of the Cliffs of Moher and the West coast of Ireland.
Everyone associated with Doolin2Aran Ferries was a delight and treated our group with courtesy and kindness. We're looking forward to visiting you again on our next trip to Ireland!"

This was our 2nd trip to Inis Oirr with Doolin2Aran and it was as enjoyable as our 1st one back in 2007.
On the island, we met our pony & trap guide, Stefan, near the dock area and enjoyed a grand tour and great conversation, stopping frequently to see sights such as the impressive wreck of the Plassey and O’Brien’s Castle.
I only wish our schedule this time had allowed for us to cruise beneath the Cliffs of Moher as we had done before. The Cliffs are so much more impressive from the ocean, especially in the late afternoon. Spectacular views are everywhere for photography buffs like me.
Inis Oirr was one of the highlights of our extensive travels through Ireland. We can’t wait to return."
