2020 is really going to be an exciting year for Doolin Ferry Co. Not only are we celebrating our 50th year in business, but we are also launching a second express ferry into our fleet.

We are thrilled to announce the name of that ferry; the Aran Islands Express! 

The naming of this ferry has been really important to us. We wanted to include all three Aran Islands. Also, because this vessel is going to operate at high speed and complement our existing, Doolin Express, we wanted to convey that in its name. There can be no confusion, when you travel upon an express ferry with Doolin Ferry Co, you’re travelling on the fastest and most comfortable ferries from Doolin.

With a capacity of 250 passengers it will be the largest vessel to operate to the Aran Islands from Doolin. This will allow us to facilitate more passengers at greater comfort and give you time to take in a Cliffs of Moher cruise on your return to Doolin before continuing along the wild atlantic way! 

The Aran Islands Express has spent the winter months undergoing extensive interior upgrades. This will not only add to passenger comfort but ensure that all passenger safety needs are met with the highest standards. 

Having a second express ferry is a fantastic way to mark our 50th anniversary in business and is also a time to reflect on the changes that have happened over the past 50 years both in terms of Doolin Pier and the boats that service the Aran Islands. 

We couldn’t have dreamed to have the amazing facilities and vessels that we now have and we will continue to constantly evolve and grow in the future.
