Guided Walking Tours

This Day Trip to Inisheer (Inis Oirr) is a stress-free way to experience the Aran Islands. Your ferry, bike rental, and tea and scones with a local islander are all taken care of. All you have to do is enjoy the beautiful Inisheer.

Inisheer is the smallest of the three Aran Islands, located off the coast of Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher.

Your tour begins at Doolin Pier. There, you will meet your guide for the first time. Your guide will have everything organised for you so that all you have to do is relax.

The boat journey to Inisheer is 15 minutes long and filled with spectacular views. Lots of people often see dolphins who like to swim next to the boats. As you step onto the island, you will immediately grasp what island life is all about. You will see horses and local farmers, hear Irish (or Gaelic) being spoken by the locals, and smell the freshest air the Atlantic Ocean can provide.

Tour the island by bike! No waiting in line – your guide will take care of your bike rental. They will show you around and allow you to experience the sunken graveyards, shipwrecks, castles, and much more.

In peak season, finding a restaurant to sit down and eat in can be difficult. After your guided tour, your guide will bring you to a local cafe where the cafe owner, Una, will have tea/coffee and scones (very popular sweet bread served with jam and cream.).

Afterwards, you can enjoy your free time on the island. People use this time to go to the pub for a pint, visit the playground with the kids, or simply chill on the beach! You will meet your guide back at the pier to board the ferry back to Doolin.
