EXPERIENCE THE ISLAND WAY OF LIFE

Off the Galway coast, there’s a set of three rocky isles called the Aran Islands. Not only are they known for their majestic landscapes and ancient sites, but also for their window into traditional Irish culture and way of life.

Inishmore (or Inis Mór) is the largest of the three islands. Inishmaan (Inis Meain) is where the pace of life slows down, with only 200 inhabitants living there. And finally, Inisheer (Inis Oirr) is the smallest island.

Inishmore is home to the prehistoric fort Dún Aonghasa, sitting atop a high cliff. It is deemed to be one of the best examples of its kind in Europe and is even being considered as a UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views from the top!

Nearby you’ll also find the Wormhole, a remarkable rectangular pool. Then there’s the beehive-shaped Clochán na Carraige and the ruins of the Medieval Seven Churches.

Locals of the Aran Islands speak Irish and English, and you’ll find sites of historical significance dotted around the three islands. A popular way to get around that you may enjoy is the “pony and trap” tour (horse & carriage).
