Meet Our Team  

Antoine O’Flaherty

Antoine is our youngest skipper and a native of Inis Oirr, the closest Aran Island to Doolin. So if you would like to try out your “cúpla focal” (few words) of Irish, you know who to talk to!

Jim Griffin

Jim has been with us since we started sailing in 2000. He comes from a local fishing family here in Doolin and was destined for a life on the sea.  He learned all he knows sailing with the master himself, Mr PJ Garrihy.

Chris Mroczek

Originally from Poland, Chris is a born-again Irishman!  A keen fisherman himself, he regales our passengers with stories of the wild life and seabirds that can be seen at the Cliffs of Moher.

Shane Garrihy

Shane is one of the second-generation Garrihys working with the Doolin2Aran Ferries sales team on the pier in Doolin. If you’re not sure which island/cruise/combination trip to take, Shane will set you on the right path (or more accurately, the right boat ..)
