Cliffs of Moher Ferry

See sailing times & reserve HERE (

The Cliffs of Moher are iconic, and you haven’t really seen them until you’ve seen them from the sea! They rise to a magnificent height of over 700ft which you can only really appreciate from a sea view!! You may even spot some puffins, dolphins, seals, or basking sharks.

Our Cliffs of Moher ferry is truly an amazing way to take in the majesty of these iconic cliffs. Join our crew for a journey you will be sure to remember. Take in the wildlife, nature, and history of the stunning west of Ireland coastline. See Ireland’s largest sea bird colony, An Branán Mór Sea Stack and a Sea Cave used in filming Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince.

Aran Islands Ferry

See sailing times & reserve HERE (

The Aran Islands are a ruggedly beautiful group of three islands located on the West Coast of Ireland. Famous for their wild landscapes off the beaten track these islands never fail to wow. They are a celebration of Irish language, culture, and music with a unique display of some of the oldest archaeological remains in Ireland.

Come to see thatched cottages and get a glimpse into the Ireland of old. The Aran Islands have a distinct character and life is slower here — a sanctuary to modern life while local providing a welcoming spirit.

We offer several sailing options daily and operate from March to October, reservations recommended. The O’Brien family and crew look forward to taking you on an unforgettable journey along the Wild Atlantic Way!
