On this service, Galway Tour Company will bring you south along the Wild Atlantic Way and into the lunar-like Burren region. From there we’ll head to the picturesque fishing village of Doolin where you’ll board the ferry to Inisheer (Inis Oirr) – the smallest and most vibrant of the Aran Islands.

Departing Doolin you will remain in the capable hands of The Doolin Ferry Company.

Inisheer is only a short sailing from Doolin, and attractions include ancient churches and castles, one of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches, a modern playground and several pubs and cafes, lighthouses and shipwrecks. Hire a pony and trap, or a bike or stroll the peaceful boreens.

Once we depart Doolin we will take the coast road home, following the Wild Atlantic Way to Galway City.
