Take a day trip to the Aran Islands on your visit to Galway. Here, on the very edge of Europe, is an Island rich in the language, culture and heritage of Ireland, unique in its geology and archaeology and in its long tradition of gentle hospitality. Here is a place to sense the spirit of Gaelic Ireland, to touch the past, but with all the comforts and facilities of the present.
Aran will take you back to an Ireland of Celts and Early Christians. This is an island of great peace and tranquillity, but it is also an island of great fun and activity. A timeless land in an endless sea, weathered monuments on awesome cliffs, great labyrinths of limestone, meandering walls, patchwork fields, quiet beaches and a welcoming island people, this is Aran in Galway bay on the west coast of Ireland.
For a day to the Aran Islands we suggest taking the public shuttle bus from Galway City to the ferry port and from there the ferry to Inis More (the largest Aran Island). We suggest a combination ticket for the transfer and the ferry and they are scheduled in a way that the bus & ferry connect with each other.
Full day tour: 09.00 – 19.00
Some suggestions of things to do on the Island are: Bike hire, Mini Bus Tour and a visit to Dun Aengus!
Your group can include a guide for the day to join them on the Aran Islands
