Aran Islands

(4.4/5 based on 1,600+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, trails, sightseeing
A collection of three islands off the west coast near Galway Bay, Aran Islands provide an isolated bit of the country where traditional culture reigns. The islands' inhabitants mostly speak Irish as a first language, and all place names are primarily in Irish, with English translations. Visitors revel in the small-town feel, authentic pubs, and native Irish language. Because the islands contain lots of unpaved roads and farmland bordered by walls made of limestone rocks, they're best explored by bike or on foot. Plan your holiday in Aran Islands and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Ireland trip itinerary planner.
