"Don't sweat over this one" Kilronan by sourbugger

Kilronan Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 56 photos

When you land in the Aran Island largest village Kilronan,, there is a sign of the Quayside that reads ‘Keep out. Danger’. Except here in a piece of reverse graffiti the ‘D’ has been painted out. That’s just the kind of sentiment that is appropriate here.

The main island, Inis Mor is in danger of becoming a kind of ‘Lepricorn Disneyland’, with a variety of diversions to keep the twee tourist happy for the day. Despite the reliance on tourism, it is still possible to find quiet places on the Island where you still feel free from the tourism machine that is 21st century Ireland.
