Tuesday to Friday looks like the best option...
Tuesday evening would suit me. Get to Arainn (big island) & suss a circumnavigation. Back to Doolin on Friday evening at latest.

Ok. The plan is to hit out from Doolin between 15:00 & 16:00 today. Head for Kilronan on Arainn. We might stick our heads into Inis Oirr on the way. It's half way. I've booked a room in the hostel tonight for myself, Sophie, Chris, & Peter.
They're booked out Weds night but he tells me there will not be an issue getting space in the other hostel & there's plenty of taxis about if we're lazy.
Weds do one side of the island, Thurs the other. The cliff section is 16 km. We can figure out which day for which this evening, forecast, swell, etc etc...

Thurs evening we can crash on Arainn or head for Inis Oirr. Friday we head back early ish. Weather is staying good but wind & sea looks to be picking up Friday evening.

20 years I've been getting around to this trip! Woo Hoo!!!

Given a preference I'd say the islanders would prefer a visit from the Vikings then a thirsty Chris and company :lol:

God help them all :shock:
