    What to Expect
    Day trips depart from Doolin for Inis Oirr, (the closest of the Aran Islands) 3 times every day, March to October, at 10am, 11am and 1pm.

    From the moment you step aboard the gangway, you are treated to a feast of maritime activity,including dolphins following our wake! There is an air of anticipation as the ship sails ever closer to the island.

    Inis Oírr is just 30 minutes away, and reassuringly visible from Doolin pier. The voyage to the island pier passes some of its famous landmarks en route – the iconic Plassy shipwreck, O’Brien’s Castle and the Dun Formna stoneage fort on the hill, the white sandy beach with its crystal turquoise waters and possibly the most beautifully located graveyard in Ireland.

    Coming down the gangway is almost like stepping back in time, where it is easy to picture life in times gone by. On this island, you can (for example) you can isit an authentic cottage, where you can learn about the traditions, customs and clothing of the Aran Islands.

    Take a guided tour on a pony and trap, and enjoy the sensation of being transported at a leisurely pace along tiny roads, surrounded by an impossible vista of stone walls stretching in every direction.

    Rent a bicycle and explore the nooks and crannies in your own time.

    Let the children play in the fantastic adventure playground built on the sand.

    Feast on a lunch of the freshest seafood in one of the island's charming pubs.

    Choose to return at 2pm or 4:45pm, arriving back to Doolin pier with a treasure trove of memories of an unforgettable day.
