Aran Island Ferry
On the western fringes of the Atlantic Ocean, the three Aran Islands have been standing guard over Galway Bay for centuries, fighting off invading warriors and invading seas.

Islanders today lead very modern lives, but they maintain many traditions and remain connected to the land and sea on a level to which few "mainland" people can relate. They are fiercely proud of their ancient heritage and work hard to ensure the future of their Irish-speaking community.

Come and be welcomed by the islanders to a place that has inspired poets, writers and musicians from around the world and across the millennia.
