Aran Islands Ferries has extended its new seasonal tourist route to Inis Mór and the Cliffs of Moher until the end of September.
In June the long standing ferry operator launched a new service taking visitors on a day trip out to Inis Mór, where they can spend several hours exploring the largest of the Aran Islands.
After that, the ferry takes a circuitous route back to Galway City by way of the Cliffs of Moher, giving passengers a chance to really take in the majesty of the cliffs.
Viewing the stunning c from the sea, learning the history of Galway Bay, seeing nature, meeting the dolphins have all been part of the positive feedback received from the people who’ve enjoyed the tour in the past month and a half.
In response to the positive demand, the ferry operator has announced that they are extending the window of this seasonal tour route until September 26.
“The new route and service has received a hero’s welcome from Galwegians, visitors to Galway City and the tourism and hospitality sector,” said Marketing Manager Aine McLoughlin.
Offering a 90-minute cruise on Galway Bay, Aran Island Ferries luxury vessels showcase the contrasting beauty and scenery of the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way coastline of Connemara and Clare along with all three of the Aran Islands, Inis Oirr and Inis Meáin before docking in Kilronan on Inis Mór.
While on Inis Mór for a 4.5 hour stop-over from 11am to 3.30pm visitors can hire bicycles, or explore the stunning beauty of the largest of the three Aran Islands by mini bus tour, pony and trap, Aran Off Road Experience or simply walk.
Other attractions include the breath taking Dún Aengus Cliffs, the many historical sites, beaches, Aran Islands Goats Cheese Food Tours, Aran Diving Academy or simply relax with the mouth-watering seafood and a drink.
There is onboard audio commentary for guests to learn about the culture and heritage of the Aran Islands, the nature and beauty of Galway Bay, the Wild Atlantic Way and the world renowned Cliffs of Moher, all of which are entertaining and educational to all age groups.
