Departing from

The best way to get to the Aran Islands is from Doolin, County Clare. Doolin, Ireland is a beautiful seaside village with amazing scenery in all directions. It’s located close to the Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands Ferry, so it’s ideal for a day trip, overnight, or extended stay. It’s just a short hop from Doolin to the Aran Islands with us. There is so much to do nearby, therefore Doolin is one of the best places to visit on the Wild Atlantic Way. The village is located less than one hour from Shannon Airport and 1.5 hours from both Galway and Limerick City Centres.
