Aran-Islands Travel


 

Gorgeous Scenery and Stone Walls Compose the
Aran-Islands in Ireland


For an excursion into the wild and exotic scenery lining the western portion of Ireland's coast, the Aran Islands is a travel destination filled with beauty. The rugged, rocky terrain gives depth to the island, and you can travel by foot very easily even though most of the land is covered with rocks instead of greenery. Even though the rocks and stonewalls are located around every corner of the Aran Islands, there are also over 400 types of lush wildflowers and scenic vistas to observe on holidays to the Irish Isles.

The Aran Islands are split into three distinct, separate isles: the largest, Inishmore; the central, Inishmaan; and the smallest, Inisheer. To explore these islands, you will need to take a ferry from the west coast of Ireland, and in peak season, you will be able to take ferries directly from one island to the others. However, in the off season, you will have to take a ferry from the island to the mainland to find another boat that will be visiting one of the other three islands
