Visit Doolin

Doolin is known as the centre of music and merriment in Ireland. A place of great beauty and tranquillity where the visitor can refresh their spirits away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Doolin is on the fringe of the world famous Burren, a remarkable limestone area which has a combination of many visual features that make it a unique landscape in Europe. Its geology, flora, caves, archaeology, and history set it apart as a place of mystery and beauty- an explorer’s dream.

Local restaurants offer fine foods and dining with fresh seafood the speciality. Craft shops in the region offer a range of locally produced hand-crafted products. Three world-famous pubs, O’Connor’s, McGann’s, and McDermott’s, feature traditional music sessions nightly. The surrounding music shops have a wide range of items available to suit all tastes.

We are the first ferries to operate from Doolin to Aran Islands.

O'Brien Ferries Doolin

An one hour boat trip close to Moher Cliffs, really not so expensive, but so many memories.

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...

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.
