Aran Islands

Inis Oirr
Family Friendly Outdoor Activity Picnic Areas
The Aran Islands offer visitors a glimpse into a way of life that has long since disappeared from most of the world. Filled with traditional Irish culture, the islands offer breath-taking scenery, ruins and world-renowned stone forts. There are various ways of getting to the Aran Islands. The most popular route is to Inis Mór from Galway City although Inis Meain and Inis Oirr are also popular. From the Galway city Docks it is a 35-minute coastal drive to Rossaveal (Connemara) where you can take a Ferry. However, Aran Island Ferries also leave from Galway city docks.
