Things to Do on Inishmore

Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands is a must see when visiting Ireland. The stunning island with its kind people offers a peek into the Ireland of the Celts.

The island is easily reached by ferry from Roshill, which travels twice a day. Though a lot of people opt for a day trip, I would recommend staying at least one or two nights. Especially in the fall, the island is the perfect place to unwind and relax. And there is plenty to keep you busy if the weather allows. … More Things to Do on Inishmore

The Aran Islands are a group of three islands off the coast of Galway, Ireland. If you find yourself in Ireland, they are a must visit.

The islands were first cultivated around 3000-4000 years ago by the Celts. The rocky islands were devoid of vegetation. By clearing the rocks and creating soil from layers of seaweed and sand the Celts created farmland. This method took about 300 years and has left the islands covered in the iconic small fields surrounded by stone walls. … More Why you Should Visit the Aran Islands
