There are three Aran Islands, Inis Mor (Big Island), Inis Meain (Middle Island), and Inis Oirr (East Island). The islands are filled with history; forts, churches, lighthouses can be found throughout the three islands. In Inis Mor, the largest and most popular island of the three, you will find the ‘Dun Aonghasa’ a famous stone fort overlooking the Atlantic. In Inis Oirr sits the remains of Obriens castle overlooking the sea. There are quaint little villages, like Killronan in Inis Mor – the main port for the ferries – that have great shopping and restaurants serving fresh seafood.
