Easy to book, took the ferry from Rossaveel. Can be expensive for the ferry as only a short journey . Then with bike hire on top too . Definitely hire bikes though once on the island to cycle it, it’s truly beautiful. The electric bikes are great unless your super fit . Locals are friendly, aswell as the cows , horses & donkeys your see around the island. Oh & the seals. It’s a must do trip when in Ireland.

Nice ferry ride over. Rented bicycles at the pier and biked all over. We went to the Fort ruins…Dun Aonghasa and the “Wormhole”. Saw some seals in the water. Weather was wonderful as well. Highly recommend this trip.

I had seen the other 2 island and was anxious to see Inishmore, enjoyed it totally with our tour guide, am not disappointed for my fifth time in Ireland

The ferry ride to the Aran Islands was fantastic. Perfect weather, great views of the Cliffs of Moher. This was best part of our visit to Ireland. dcl

We were wondering how we were going to fill 8 and a half hours but the day went by so fast!
