Aran Island Ferries Win 'Best Irish Experience 2021'

Aran Island Ferries received ‘BEST IRISH EXPERIENCE’ 2021 Award from travel2ireland and the Irish Travel Trade Network last week.

The awards acknowledge Hospitality operators who have gone out of their way to ensure guests and visitors have had memorable experiences in Ireland and for the professionalism and dedication executed to be the best tourism providers in the country.

Nominations for the award were received from consumers across the country, who then voted for their favourite.

Sales and Marketing Manager, Aine McLoughlin said “To win this highly coveted award means so much to the whole team who have had the pleasure of welcoming many happy passengers on board our departures from Galway Docks and Rossaveel this year. Our new ferry and routes offer choice, convenience and a memorable way to see and learn about the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher.”

Aran Island Ferries welcomed Ireland’s largest ferry, Saoirse na Farraige, to the fleet in November 2020 and launched a new route from Galway Docks to Inis Mór and the Cliffs of Moher in June this year.

Editor of travel2ireland and member of ITTN Group, Joan Scales commented "I am not surprised the readers of travel2ireland voted for Aran Island Ferries as the Best Irish Experience. I travelled on Saoirse na Farraige to Inis Mór from Galway City and loved the experience. The new 400-passenger ferry is staffed by people who love their jobs and want passengers to enjoy the experience. The return journey from Inis Mór is a unique experience as the ferry brings passengers along the base of the majestic Cliffs of Moher. Saoirse na Farraige is a big investment in the islands' infrastructure by a private company and deserves the award."
