The ferries will bring you to the Aran Islands, which was one of the best experiences on my 2-week Ireland trip. I heavily recommend going to the Aran Islands, using the ferries is just a nice and relatively cheap way to do it.

The transport with the ferries was good, no problems there. There is a shuttle bus provided from Galway.

Visited the Aran islands recently and found the ferry was quiet efficient. I found that the ferry from Rosaveal to Inis Mor was about 45 min even though they said that it only took 35min. It was a beautiful sunny day .
The frequency of ferries is better in august .The staff on the ferry were very nice .The ferry cost 24euro return .When we were coming back on the ferry at 5 pm,their were another two ferries returning back to Rosaveal Enjoy.

Riding on the ferry was better than swimming, but there was nothing special about our ferry ride. My DH and I were part of a tour group and everything was arranged by our tour guide. The ferry was efficient, however the covers on the seats inside were worn and dated and it just looked a bit shabby.. The water was choppy, so I went outside for some fresh air. The fumes from the engine(s) were so strong - probably made me more nauseated than the waves. I was thankful that no one smoked inside the ferry. The crew got us there on time and our entry and exit to and from the ferry went smoothly. Suggestion: please have your crew bathe and wear clean clothes before coming in contact with the passengers. 10:30 am is too early to smell loudly of body odor and doesn't help the nausea caused by the rough ride.

Easy to get to the islands using the ferry service. Very smooth 45 minute ride out and back. Would use this service again.

booked trip on line and received 10% discount. Staff were very pleasant and efficient at port. Crossing was a bit rough going over to island but was fine coming back. Enjoyed experience on the island.
