Fairly priced ferry to the Aran Islands. Tony was great! He loves his job and told us a lot of history in the area.

We had a great time on the Aran Island but not so much getting there. No fault of the ship or the company. They were terrific. Pick a quiet day and this is a great time.

A wonderful experience for anyone traveling to Aran Islands, even for anyone who may be a little nervous, (sit near the back for the smoothest ride). Just 15 to 20 mins & you're there.
