Inis Mor, The Aran Islands
On the Map: The Aran Islands are located off counties Clare & Galway on Ireland’s rugged western coast. There are three islands – Inishmore (largest), Inishmaan & Inisheer (smallest). The islands are most easily accessible by ferry from the port of Rossaveal, County Galway – 45 minutes/ 36km west of Galway City. Thay are also accessible by ferry from Doolin pier – a very good option if day-tripping to Inisheer.
On the islands, you can immerse yourself in the rich Celtic culture among people who speak Gaelic as their first language, and experience a whole different way of life. Here you will find that the 1,500 people that inhabit these islands are quite removed from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. One of the most famous attractions on the island of Inishmore is the ancient stone fort of Dun Aengus. This fort dates back to the Celtic Iron Age around the first century AD and is perched atop spectacular 300 foot cliffs that drop straight down to the Atlantic. Please note that the cost of the ferry to the Aran Islands is not included in the land price above. It must be purchased independently while in Ireland. We recommend booking a day or two in advance.
