The Aran Islands (Oileáin Árann) are a band of three islands swimming in the waters of Galway Bay, County Galway. The Islands are names Inis Mór (Inishmore), Inis Meáin (Inishmaan), and Inis Oírr (Inisheer). These islands are believed to have once been an extension of The Burren Region, County Clare. The Aran Island ferries operates from Doolin in County Clare which is the closest crossing point by sea to the Aran Islands. O’Brien line ferries have been operating from Doolin to the Aran Islands for over 45 years and are the Original Doolin Ferry Company. Founded in 1970 by Bill O’Brien and now operated with his son Liam O’Brien.

The Islands are a part of particular regions in Ireland called The Gaeltacht (An Ghaeltacht) in which Irish (Gaelic) is the spoken language of the community at large. The Gaeltacht areas work to preserve the Irish Language and Culture providing us with a truly unique connection with Ireland’s rich past. When visiting the Islands today you can hear this wonderful language being spoken in every shop, pub, and roadway.

The Aran Islands (Oileáin Árann) have piqued the interest of many a character with their enchanting sights and sounds. From Musicians, Artists, Geologists and Botanists, to the Average Joe, few can escape The Aran Islands allure. So hop aboard the Aran Island Ferries and sail away to an authentic Irish experience.
