Exploring the Islands
uncompromising landscape which is home to a resourceful and resilient
island population. Lots of little pubs and restaurants on the
island as well as the great opportunity to purchase an Aran sweater
for which the islands are widely renowned. We strongly recommend
a pair of sturdy walking boots for your exploration of the island.
The highlight of your visit to Inis Mor will be Dun Aenghus (thats
a photo of it above).This prehistoric stone fort was the last
stronghold on what was once believed to be the most Westerly point
on the map of the World. The island is 8 miles long and 2 miles
wide so very little chance of getting lost.
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 tranquility, but it is also an island
of great fun and activity.
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
