A day trip to the Aran Islands is a must for anyone staying in Doolin. Doolin Ferry port is the closest mainland port serving the Aran Islands. These three stunningly beautiful islands are an off shore extension of the Burren and are one of the last out-posts of Gaelic civilisation where Irish is still the native language of their inhabitants.
Ferries run from Doolin pier to each of the Islands every day. For a day trip we recommend Inis Oire, as it is only a 30 minute ferry trip across the bay. Get a 10% discount on all ferry tickets here.
