Whenever we are asked which is the best of the Aran Islands, it's kinda like saying to Goldilocks, which is your favourite bear... I mean, in fairness, Papa Bear does his job very well, as does Momma Bear and what's not to love about Baby Bear, so choosing just one? That's a big ask!
It all depends what you are looking for -
- Absolutely HAVE to see Dun Aengus? Then it's Inis Mor for you (try stay overnight if you can, it's even better).
Sailing Time from Doolin to Inis Mor: 1 hour, 20 minutes
- Want to really get away from it all, and breathe in an undiluted, traditional Irish way of life? Inis Meain all the way. Have a read of this blog on the 5 key attractions on Inis Meain
Sailing Time from Doolin to Inis Meain: 1 hour
- Don't have a huge amount of time, but want to get to the islands and maybe also see the Cliffs of Moher? Why not try the Combination Tour to the beautiful island community of Inis Oirr and take the return cruise under the Cliffs, you can still be back in Doolin for 3pm
Sailing Time from Doolin to Inis Oirr: 20 minutes
You can always stay overnight on any of the islands and take an inter-island transfer the next day to see another island. We would be happy to take you there, or answer any questions you might have, so please get in touch and let us help you plan your trip.
Hope to see you in Doolin!
