10 Reasons To Take A Staycation on The Aran Islands
Want to go on a holiday but don’t feel like you have enough time? Why not make the most of the free time you have and take a staycation! A staycation is a vacation spent staying in your own country and we’ve got some great reasons why you should consider the Aran Islands as your staycation destination:
Less Planning & More Quality Time
You will have more time to spend relaxing and hanging out with friends when you don’t have to jump from airport to airport catching connecting flights, trains and buses. A staycation is also perfect for a weekend getaway.
No sitting in traffic for hours wasting time and losing the will to live, on Inis Mór you can move freely while taking in the fresh sea air of the Wild Atlantic Way.
By taking a staycation, you are supporting the economy of the local community.
No need to lug around big suitcases, a backpack is pretty much all you need! Inis Mór has a selection of stores including clothing, craft and grocery all within a few minutes walk from the ferry terminal.
Inis Mór is just a short ferry ride away from the mainland but you can still have the experience of leaving it all behind as you set sail to the islands.
Always wanted to visit Dún Aonghasa or The Wormhole?
Now’s your chance, get yourself a tour guide and explore the history and beauty of your own country.
Peace of Mind
You speak the language, you know the rules and you’re not too far from home so you can truly relax and enjoy your staycation.
Reconnect with Nature
Whether that means heading off for a hike with friends to the scenic Teampall Bheanáin or finding some blissful solitude reading a book at Tra Mhór, there is an abundance of mother nature all around.
There is great fun to be had on the island with pubs offering live music nightly, Inis Mór is a great place for socialising and meeting the locals (whom you can get tips from for the best things to see and do).
You can save those pennies by choosing to take a staycation and not blowing all your money on flights and expensive hotels. At Aran Islands Camping & Glamping we have accommodation options for every budget. Check out our October special offer as inspiration for your next staycation.
