Dolphin Watch

The west coast of Ireland, and around the Shannon estuary in particular, is home to many dolphins. Here in our specific area we have a local celebrity, "Dusty", who is solitary dolphin living mostly around Inisheer (one of the Aran Islands) but she makes regularly appearances at Doolin Pier, following the ferries travelling back and forth from the Islands.

There is also the possibilty of taking an actual dolphin watch cruise down on the Shannon Estuary, about one hour drive from Doolin. Below are two companies that provide this service.
