Easy to book, and a lovely cruise in front of the cliffs. Comfortable boat with an informed crew. Tickets bought online should mention to head straight to the pier.

This is the best ferry service to use in Doolin! Do not let the other two offices try to trick you on the Pier. Bill O’Briens is the only...

Would highly recommend Bill and his team at O Brien Ferries. Very professional and friendly service. We had a great day on their boat exploring Clare.
