Aran Islands Service
With the Aran Islands Service, a trip to the Aran Islands will be a breeze! If you’re looking for a tonic to escape the pressures of modern life, this will do the trick! Or perhaps you are looking for a place to commune with nature, be inspired and find peace to envelop body & soul – if that’s the case, look no further.
Whether you wish to bask on sandy beaches, sailboard, or just walk the quiet winding byways, the Aran Islands have it all. This is the perfect getaway for those in search of some peace and quiet, or just looking for something a bit different to do while in Galway.
Inishmore, or Inis Mór in Irish, is the largest of the Aran islands and by far the most popular. With a population of approx. 1,000 people spread among 14 villages (yes, really!), it is well served by mini-bus tours, hostels, hotels & restaurants. The main attraction on the island is undoubtedly the ancient cliff fort of Dun Aonghasa, which can be easily accessed by renting a bike or just walking. Activities on the island are not included in the ticket price.
