A short drive from our Hotel and catch the ferry to The Aran Islands
Visitors are drawn to the Aran Islands each year because of their uninterrupted wild Atlantic Ocean and spectacular views of the Connemara coast, Twelve Pins mountains and Cliffs of Moher.
They are located just off Galway and Doolin and are famous for their geological formation, historical monuments and their cultural and linguistic heritage. A truly Irish experience awaits, where the Irish (Gaelic) language is still spoken here and in the twenty first century, all native born islanders are bilingual in both Irish and English.
The islands have had a great influence on world literature and arts disproportionate to the size. The unusual cultural and physical history of the islands has made them the object of visits by a variety of writers and travellers who recorded their experiences, such as Lady Gregory, Seán Keating, Elizabeth Rivers and Basil Rakoczi.
If you wish to experience a way of life that has long since disappeared from most of Ireland, the Aran Islands is a definite must-see.
