Overview

These three islands lie across the mouth of Galway Bay, about 30 miles out to sea. The Aran Islands consist of Inishmaan, Inisheer and the largest, Inishmore. These are Irish-speaking islands where old traditions still exist. Some modernizations have taken root, although many practices remain including Currach racing, fishing and the knitting of distinctive hand-made sweaters or "ganseys". You can take a ferry or light aircraft. Enquiries can be made at the tourist office in Galway's city center, and you can leave your vehicle at the Foster Street carpark when visiting the Islands.
