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!
