Aran Island - Oileáin Árann

Famed for their wild landscapes, distinctive knitted jumpers and pretty thatched cottages, the Irish-speaking Aran Islands on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way never fail to wow…

Located 48km (30 miles) off the County Galway coastline and surrounded by the Atlantic, the cluster of three islands known as the Arans are celebrated for their heritage, culture and arresting landscapes. Crossing the fathomless, grey-blue sea towards them feels like entering a different dimension. These lands have a startling and often harsh beauty that has drawn poets, artists, dreamers and adventurers for thousands of years.

Your Aran Islands adventure starts with a trip by passenger ferry from Rossaveal, County Galway or Doolin, County Clare. You can also get there by air in just 8 minutes! Island-hop between the three, rent bicycles and explore the hidden corners, ancient sites and enduring traditions. Travel one, or make it your business to visit all three – the choice is yours.

The top attractions to visit in Galway are:
  • Connemara National Park & Visitor Centre
  • Wild Atlantic Way
  • Quay Street
  • Salthill Promenade
  • Galway's Latin Quarter
To get the most from your visit to Galway you should plan to allow three days to discover both the culturally rich city and the windswept countryside, which is home to some of Ireland's most breathtaking natural attractions, such as the Cliffs of Moher and the hills, bogs, and magnificent peaks of Connemara.
