#NewFastFerry- The newest and largest fastferry between Doolin and the Aran Islands has recently begun operations with reduced sailings times by half, writes Jehan Ashmore.

Introduction of Doolin Express is a major advancement in the upgrade of the fleet for Co. Clare based operators Doolin Ferry. The company earlier this year announced the fastest crossings between Doolin and Inis Oírr, the nearest of the Aran Islands to the mainland.

By spending the day taking in the charms of Inis Oírr there is also on the return trip a stunning cruise under the world famous Cliffs of Moher as part of the Wild Atlantic Way. This is the operators most popular cruise option.

Doolin Express is a boost to services having increased capacity of a single ferry of just 100 passengers to the fastferry's 200. The travel experience of Doolin Express also brings passengers in greater comfort given a state of the art electronic stabilising system. This on board technology is to assist passengers that are prone to motion sickness.

In addition to the fastferry improving efficiencies, the newcomer will work towards meeting the operator’s sustainability and environmental goals.
