Aran Islands Ferries & Flights

Ferries and Flights to Inis Mor Island,
The Aran Islands from Galway

Ferries to The Aran Islands and to Aran Camping and Glamping on Inis Mor can be reached by both ferry and air all through the year. This guide to how to get to Inis Mor and the Aran Islands will help you plan your trip.

Where is Inis Mor located?
Inis Mor is one of the 3 Aran Islands located off the west coast of Ireland outside of Galway Bay. There are year around connections with the mainland with two ferry services and also air transport. Please note – it is not possible to bring your car over to the Aran islands, as the ferry services do not allow for this. Vehicles can be left at the ports and the airport before boarding.

By Ferry from Galway (Rossaveal) to The Aran Islands
The Rossaveal port is located about 20 miles away from the centre of Galway, and is the more popular access point to the Aran Islands. It is a natural stop along the Wild Atlantic Way, and also well connected with Dublin, which is just a few hours drive away using the M6. Galway is also well connected to Dublin and other parts of Ireland with a good train service.

 

 

Getting from Galway to the Port
A shuttle service runs from the centre of Galway to the port at Rossaveal and takes about an hour. This leaves from outside The Victoria Hotel which is around the corner from Eyre Square (Click Here for a google Map). If you are travelling by car, you can leave your vehicle at the port before boarding the ferry to the Aran Islands. Taxis are available from the centre of Galway.

The Crossing from Rossaveal with Aran Island Ferries
The ferry crossing from Rossaveal to Inis Mor takes around 40 minutes. As mentioned, no vehicles can be taken on the ferries. The ferry service from Rossaveal to Inis Mor runs all through the year, although the number of crossing may be reduced in the winter.

By Ferry from Doolin

The alternative crossing to Inis Mor from the mainland of Ireland leaves from Doolin, although this is only a seasonal service running from April to October. The journey time is approximately 90 minutes, and no vehicles can be taken on the ferries. Anyone travelling by car can leave their vehicle at the newly renovated pier before boarding. The ferry crossing from Doolin is more popular with people travelling along the Wild Atlantic Way from South to North.

Getting from Doolin to the Port
Doolin itself is a relatively small rural town, although it is quite spread out, with the port at the far end. People travelling by car will have no problem reaching it, but anyone who is using public transport to travel around Ireland may need to consider taking a taxi to the port. As with the Rossaveal ferry, we would strongly suggest booking your ferry tickets in advance if you intend to stay at Aran Camping and Glamping during the popular summer months to ensure you have a place.

Arriving on Inis Mor
No matter which ferry you decide to take to Inis Mor, you will find yourself arriving at the terminal in Kilronan, which is the main town on the island. This is a little hub of activity, where the majority of the island’s shops, bars and restaurants can be found. Aran Islands Camping and Glamping is just a short walk away, and well sign-posted. If in doubt, just ask anyone – they all know where we are!

 

Getting to Inis Mor By Air

Flights to Inis Mor are available via Aer Arann Islands based at Inverin (just outside of Galway). The plane only flies in good weather, and the timetable such as it is, subject to change.

The site situated in very comfortable place; just 5 minutes walk from village, the beach just over the wall, beautiful surround. It amazing that only for 10 euros you can use the kitchen in full: they have all dishes, cutlery, pans, etc. The field for tents is quite big and flat. The girl in reception explained about all attractions of Aran island. We are very pleased.

The grounds were lovely and well maintained, it wasn't too far from the shop/restaurants especially if you've hired a bike which I'd recommend on a nice day and everything was clean. There was a receptionist who was very rude over the weekend I was there which took away from the experience a bit.

Visited here last Summer. Very convenient spot. You had to pay to use the showers but I supposed that's fair enough when it's €10 per person per night to camp. The site and area is a little bit "dead" but it is a small island after all, well within walking distance though to the lively areas. Place could be a little more scenic but it is nice all the same. Overall - good value! I will be visiting again this Summer, in early August.

TopThe scenery is incredible, just in front of the beach. The place is very close to the village (shop, pubs, bike hire) and to the pier. Perfect place for spending time with friends, family and children. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Very disappointed with the service. We reserved a cabin for a night but our ferry was canceled due to bad weather conditions. The reservation office refused to refund any of our money, even with more than 48 hours notice. Do not recommend.

Very scenic, good kitchen facilities. However, the water in the showers would be cold at unpredictable times of the day and there was nowhere to plug a hairdryer into.

Great and memorable experience. Nice, small and cozy camps. Best for two people but can accommodate three. Nice and professional staff. We loved the kitchen facilities which makes up for the small size of camp. Great atmosphere. We hired bicycles and visited the whole island. Must visit place if you’re planning on staying overnight on the island. Highly recommended.

Camped here overnight when I cycled from Galway. Nice campsite, good facilities, you pay for the shower but it last ages. Good kitchen facilities and it's close to the Pubs. I set up the Tent and cycled around the sites on the island very handy.

Stayed here with my friend a few months ago. It was my highlight of the trip and I 100% recommend staying in one of the Clocháns

Great location and generally a good site. Felt a little unwelcomed when we arrived. We got off the ferry around 11.30am and the first thing we wanted to do was offload the tent etc... Check in isn't until 1pm which is surprising as people coming off the ferry would want to dump their stuff first surely (which they did as everyone else was doing the same as us) just doesn't seem well designed. Anyway we were allowed to set up the tent (so long as we didn't use the facilities) then went off for the day and returned late in the evening. It is a very nice site and the price is very reasonable for camping. Not sure I would stay in a pod for the price though. You could get a b&b for cheaper!

€2 per shower, no handwash in the toilets. You have to wear wristbands for the duration of your stay which was very annoying. Also the campsite was very loud late into the night with some residents.

The cheapest place to stay on the island. 10euro per person in tent. 2euro extra for the shower but it's so long working that two persons can use it in this time. The pods are looking very nice but I wouldn't pay this 125euro per night for this, overpriced Ireland as usual.

Beautiful, quiet, across the street from a sandy beach. Huts are snug for 4 but we were outside a lot, so it never felt cramped. Laundry facilities and larger kitchen available in nearby outbuildings, wifi in main building. An excellent place to unplug and rest.

From start to finish I'd an excellent three day stay here.The owner was a gentleman, he unexpectantly to us, was waiting at the port for the ferry to arrive to collect his guests and drive them to the glamping site.Being midweek early October it was quiet with only a few pods occupiedThe pods were first class, spotless, like a hotel room with everything you'd want.The location is perfect, a few minutes walk from the port and Kilronan village with a beach and amazing views out over the water.It was sad having to leave, really looking forward to returning.

Free entry to Dun Aonghasa fort offered with stay. Brand new and excellent facilities at time of writing, great location for Kilronan with beach on the doorstep. Only downside was expensive (€2) shower tokens and painfully scalding water from the showers (solar heated, very hot day)! Otherwise excellent.

We stayed at Aran Camping Glamping over the weekend and found it a superb place for a break. The Units are tastefully designed and very clean. The water in the shower was hot, the kitchen room spacious, and it was close enough to the main village. Will definitely return!!
