Aran Islands, Galway: 5 reviews and 3 photos

  Make sure you "belly up" to the edge!!
by Jen.W

I loved our visit to the Aran Islands. We hopped on the ferry (45 minute ride) in the morning, and spent the day touring Inis Mór (the largest Island). We took a walk up to the Dún Dubhchathair Fort...what an amazing view!! Make sure you "belly up" to the edge. The Island is only 9 miles wide X 20 miles long, and only one road around the island. This island has only 6 inches of topsoil, making it difficult to grow anything. There is also a 5 century cemetary...amazing history!! There are a couple of shops in the main center of the island.
