Explore the Aran Islands
The Aran Islands (Inisheer/Inis Oírr, Inishmaan/Inish Meain and Inishmor/Inis Mór) are three islands off the Clare coast where Irish spoken is on a daily basis. Many of their age-old features remain unchanged to the present day and can be explored in detail, like the famous cliff fort Dun Aengus built probably a few centuries B.C., one of four forts in Inishmor.
There are medieval churches which have to be saved from moving sand dunes every year, lighthouses, so-called bee-hive huts and much more.
You can explore the islands either on foot, rent a bike or bring over your own, or have a romantic horse-and-trap ride to all the nice places. There are pubs, (seasonal) cafés and restaurants on the islands, and lots of beautiful places where to have your own picnic.
Inisheer would lend itself for a daytrip, as it is a fairly small but very interesting island. Inishmaan is slightly bigger but would still be suitable for a daytrip.
For Inishmor, if you want to explore the big island in a bit more detail, we would recommend to stay at least for one night, if not two as there is so much to see. Of course you can go on a daytrip here as well and look at the biggest attractions.
The Aran Islands have many interesting festivals and events throughout the year, some of which are listed on this site. We look forward to meeting you soon!
