Full description
The Cliffs of Moher cruise sets out from Doolin Pier and follows the cliffs, allowing you to experience them from below their stunning heights. While boarding, passengers will take in amazing views of the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and The Burren. After sailing for about 20 minutes or so, the ferry will make a stop underneath the famous O'Brien's Tower, perched high atop the Cliffs at their highest point. The Cliffs of Moher rise to a magnificent height of over 214 meters which you can really appreciate by sea. On-board you will enjoy an entertaining and informative expert commentary, allowing you to learn about the local history and wildlife. The Cliffs of Moher base is home to a diverse range of wildlife such as birds, basking sharks, dolphins and seals.  The ferry will circle back passing by An Branán Mór, the great sea stack, which is home to Ireland’s largest mainland nesting bird colony. The great sea stack plays host to thousands of sea birds that make it their summer home. The ferry will get you up close to view birds such as puffins, guillemots and razorbills. Along the journey back to Doolin Pier, you will pass the sea cave from 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' and the famous surfing spot 'Aill na Searrach' where the 'Aileen' wave is caught.  This one hour journey along the cliffs provides many fantastic photo opportunities and is never the same experience twice.

On the whole it was a great experience. There were 2 issues tho.1 the parking. It took us nearly 45 mins to find a space. It was lucky we got there early.2 our trip was delayed about 45 minutes. Standing in a queue for that long under a hot sun was very uncomfortable.
