Attraction

Aran Ferries Teo

Located in the heart of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands offer visitors a glimpse into a way of life that has long since disappeared from most of the country. The Islands' raw beauty and charm leaves visitors longing to return again and again. While the South - West coast of the island battles with the Atlantic, the North - East coast offers smooth passage for visitors between the mainland at Ros a' Mhíl and the Islands.

The Islands seem to defy their size by all they have to offer: breath-taking scenery, ecclesiastical ruins from early Christian times, medieval castles, cliffs, prehistoric stone forts (including the famous Dún Aonghasa (Dun Aengus) ring fort), sandy beaches, clean air, unique flora and fauna and a rich folklore that the islanders are proud to recount.

Author's Review

The Aran Islands are three islands off the west coast of Ireland, located just off Galway bay. Even though all of its inhabitants speak English fluently, most speak the Gaelic language on a daily basis. Believe it or not there are around 1200 residents living at any one time on these islands and every single one of them are used to people visiting their shores. I have been over to the islands on a few occasions during the research of this book and found everyone I came into contact with really charming. The islands lifeline remains with Aran Island Ferries. Running daily trips over to the islands 365 days a year, they carry not only curious visitors but much needed supplies also. The ferries are comfortable, and in my opinion offer great value for money. No trip to the west coast is complete without a visit to the Islands, take my word for it!
