Visit the islands

The Aran islands are three small islands off a bigger (but still small) island..the island of Ireland! Ireland is in the north Atlantic and has a temperate oceanic climate. Because of this we get fairly mild weather all year round but this does not mean Ireland and indeed the Aran islands are not amazinly beautiful islands and a great place to visit. There are a range of accommodation options for the Aran of islands and these include b&b’s, hotels and hostels for those of you on a budget. It is also a very popular camping spot in the summer months.

The islands are off the coast of county Galway which is home to Galway city which is only 1 hour drive away from the islands. You are also not far from the cliffs of moher in County Claire which is another very popular tourist destination. The Aran islands of made of limestone which creates a beautiful look not found in many places around the world. The three island are cllased Inis Mor, Ini Meain and Inis Oirr. These are home to an Irish speaking area and it is here that you are really in the traditional Ireland which is different from big cities like Dublin.

On the islands there are many pubs to visit and plenty to do including surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, hiking and much more!
