What to expect?

This Aran island is close to the Burren with its unusual eclectic mix of colour and the Cliffs of Moher clearly visible in all its panoramic splendour. The Island itself also has the true feel of a classical isolated fishing village. From the pier you are greeted with a pristine carpeted white sandy beach facing clear crystal turquoise water and plenty of fishing boats, their nets, and fisherman returning at the end of the day with their catch.

The main village area is right next to the beach and is enclosed by a small hill with a castle and a fort at the top as if they are taking care of the islanders and its visitors. The island is 3km by 3km wide with small hills and intricate little valley’s and is easily covered by foot or by bike. The walk to the lighthouse or the shipwreck of the Plassy is a wonderful experience where you feel the island with its diverse landscape unfold before your eyes. Inside the village you will find a strong local community still adhering to the traditional Irish way of life. The island features a traditional music bar which is has a nationwide reputation for the finest music and great night out. The island also has an arts centre, Aras Eanias and features the best in traditional music and art courses.
