Our debut destination. Welcome and we hope you enjoy!
The Aran Islands are to the west of Ireland’s mainland. There are three islands and these pictures are from the largest islands which is where most people tend to go.
Hop on a bus from Galway (if you book with Lally tours, they will organise everything for you.) which will drive you to a ferry which takes you straight there in 50 minutes. It’s very simple, we promise.
We were lucky with the weather but we were told to bring all sorts of clothing ‘just in case’.
Inishmore was sparsely populated – it truly felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. We hired two bikes and zipped around during 6 hours completely at our leisure. We passed horses and carts and spoke to some very cute locals, some of whom were seventh-generation Aran Islanders. What does this mean exactly? Well many years ago, this piece of land was connected to Ireland’s mainland however, these days not. The Aran Islands are one of the only spots left in Ireland where the native language is Irish Gaelic. If you are a language *nerd* like me, you will bask in the glory that is being surrounded by a completely new language. It was a delight to my ears!
