This was an incredible excursion! Perfect way to see the cliffs and more if you’re not traveling with a car. The Aran islands were cool, with stunning views and lovely locals offering tours. Seeing the cliffs from the bottom was an incredible perspective! And the top was just as impressive! Alan was a great tour guide, he was knowledgeable, and kept things interesting! Highly suggest this tour!

If you do this trip, find Micheal Flaherty's horse (Murphy) and trap on Inisheer. Born and raised on the island, he's a treasure and his tour and stories were easily the best and most authentic experience we had in Ireland.

Fantastic tour. John the guide was excellent and very entertaining. We couldn't see the bottom of the Cliffs due to rough seas but we got extra time at the top. Truly exceptional!

Amazing experience, such beautiful scenery and our guide Dave was awesome and super helpful!! Highly recommended, even if it's raining a bit you'll have a great time

Amazing trip with a very knowledgeable guide called Dave who kept us entertained the whole time. Can’t recommend enough!
