Great fun! We wished the flight could have been longer than 8 minutes. Booking, check in, parking, the actual flight - everything was smooth and friendly. Wonderful way to arrive on Inishmore. We took the ferry back from Inishmore and really regretted not flying again....More

We took the ferry to Inis Mor and really enjoyed the day. This is an all day experience. The bus from Galway to the Ferry docks takes an hour, and you spend 45 minutes getting out to Inis Mor. We wish we had started earlier....More

Considering the options of how to best enjoy time exploring any (or all) of the Arann Islands, I would highly recommend taking this short commuter plane. The take-off and landing were smooth, and the process from arrival, landing, and back were seamless.
