The Aran Islands are believed to be an extension of the Burren Region in County Clare. The famous rocky landscape has helped to create its iconic image of an island divided by fields separated with winding stone walls. The stunning views from this Island reveal an Atlantic gateway from Connemara to Clare. Traditional Irish culture is alive and well on Inis Mr and is apparent from their Ancient Festivals to nightly music sessions. The Aran Islands are one of the last places in Ireland that have managed to preserve their language despite the threat of persecution in earlier times.

Traveler Reviews

    We took the ferry to Inishmore. Was a little confusing on where to go, the ticket we had did not work, but they reprinted one for us, very easily. The man who worked the boat was the unhappiest man we encountered this whole trip-the water was a bit rough, if you are sensitive to that, you might want to take something for it

    Proved to be the must-see that we anticipated.

    Excellent boat ride with a beautiful view as you head out to the Aran Islands. The price was right, but the only thing to be aware of is that if you're heading out to the Innis Mor largest, farthest away island, this boat will stop at the other two islands 1st for a total trip time of 1 and 1/2 hrs. If you'd rather spend more time on the island, I would spend a little extra for the high speed, non-stop ferry straight to the Innis Mor.

    The Inis Mor visit was wonderful. We enjoyed the scenery. The cliffs were just amazing. I got a better deal buying this tour package from Viator. Highly recommended.

    Terrific! Lots of walking, interesting history, superb ruins, plenty of time. All in all, a wonder adventure.

    Wonderful boat ride. Definitely leave Doolin, the people working there are all very friendly and helpful. Also there's a dolphin that follows the boat to the islands.
