Enjoy a Spring Break in Style and go Glamping in the Aran Islands

The first sight of spring flowers brings the hope of warmer days ahead, and acts as that first invitation to enjoy the great outdoors. Discover the spectacular scenery of the Aran Islands without sacrificing any of the luxury, and go glamping with the family in the Aran Islands for your spring break.

Glamping enables you to experience all the fun of camping with none of the hardship. It’s the perfect way to spend your spring break in the Aran Islands. The unique ‘Clochans’ provide a comfortable base from which to enjoy the main attractions.

Things to do during your Aran Islands Spring Break
Whether you are staying for a night or a week, there are plenty of things for the whole family to see and do during your spring break in the Aran Islands.

St Patrick’s Day Parade
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is not to be missed if you plan your spring break in the Aran Islands over March 17th. Pin on a Shamrock, and check out the parade as it makes its way across the island of Inis Mor. You can even follow along on a bicycle!

 

Discover the charm of the Aran Islands by Bicycle
Cycling is a very popular way to explore Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands. You can cycle along at your own pace, keep to your own timetable, and venture off down quiet country tracks. All the main attractions of Inis Mor can be reached by bicycle, and so you can even put together your own self-guided sightseeing tour.

Bicycles are available to hire on the Aran islands at Aran Bike Hire. They have a full range of bikes, including bicycles for the kids, electric bikes, tandems, and trailer bikes. They also deliver bicycles to the Camping and Glamping site, and provide a free map to show you how to get to the main points of interest.

Explore the prehistoric fort of Dun Aengus
Dun Aengus is perhaps the most famous attraction on the Aran Islands. This semi-circular stone fort is thought to date back to at least 1000 BC, and not only is it impressive in itself, but also offers some incredible views. Visiting here during your spring break on the Aran Islands means that you will avoid the crowds that build up during the summer. If you have chosen to cycle to the fort, there is bicycle parking outside, and some people decide to stay around for the sunset.

The Worm Hole
Another attraction that you can visit is the Worm Hole. You can either walk here by heading east along the cliffs from Dun Aengus, or include it on your cycling route. It’s a curious natural feature, where a rectangular shaped pool has formed at the bottom of the cliffs. It has been made popular in recent years by the Red Bull Cliff Diving Championship, although it is very unlikely you will see anyone crazy enough to dive in there during your spring break in the Aran Islands! The rugged scenery along this stretch of coastline is stunning, and so it is a place well worth visiting.

Go Seal Spotting
Even in spring, you can spot the seals that call Inis Mor home. Head on over to the north side of the island to the most established seal colony, and you will find a lookout point on the road past Kilronan. How many seals you may be able to see will depend on the tide, but there are usually 10-20 there unless they are hunting for fish in the sea.

Kilronan Village
Kilronan is where the ferry services arrive from the mainland, and is a lively little village. It’s interesting to spend some time at the harbour looking at the fishing boats, as well as the traditional Currach boats. If you are starting to feel the chill during your spring break on the Aran islands, you might want to buy a genuine Aran sweater from the Aran Sweater market in the village. There is no better place to buy one, after all!. There are a couple of pubs and places to eat in the village, with one being Joe Watty’s Bar. This pub holds events and live music all through the year. It is also involved with the Tedfest – a festival based around the ever popular Father Ted comedy, normally held in February! It is a great place to meet the locals, enjoy good food, and sample a cold Guinness or two. The village has all the amenities you may need during your stay, such as an ATM machine. It is also a place to stock up on groceries if you want to self-cater when staying at the camping and glamping site.

The beaches
Admittedly, a spring break is perhaps not the ideal time to be hitting the beaches in terms of catching some rays, but it is interesting to visit at this time of the year nonetheless. The coastline always seems at its most alive during this time of year, and taking a walk along the beaches certainly fills the lungs with fresh air! Notable beaches to head for, especially on a bright day, are Cill Mhuirbhigh on Inis Mor, An Trá Mórwhich on Inis Oírr, and the sandy coves over on Inis Meáin..

And everything else….
It seems that everywhere you go in the Aran Islands, there is something of unique or historic interest. Whether it is a Celtic hillfort, an old church, or simply the views of stone walls across fields, it is a great place to get away from the crowds of city life, relax and unwind. The ideal spring break destination in ireland!

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!!
