Practical Information


Holidaying on the Aran Islands gives one the chance to tune into the Islands energies, atmosphere and activities. There are an array of activities to choose from (located in the Engage tab) as well as giving you the space and time to really get to know the place and get off the regular tourist paths. This is completely different experience in itself and also gives you the chance to integrate into the communtiy and its people.

Many people and their families choose to have their holidays on Inis Mor. Often they rent a self catering apartment, hostels, Bed and Breakfasts, and the Hotel for this.

Planning a trip to Ireland?

If you are planning a trip to Ireland the first thing you need to find out is what airport you ar flying into. Dublin and Shannon are the main international airports in the Republic of Ireland. If you are planning on visiting Dublin city then are best landing in Dublin. If you land in Dublin and you want to go West then you have to travel accross the whole country to get to the West of Ireland.

You can either hire a car or use public transport (bus/train) to get to the West of Ireland. Galway would be the major destination before heading to Rossaveal. Galway takes 2.5 hours by bus or train from Dublin. If you want to avoid the cities and just go to the West of Ireland where all the beauty spots are and where the most traditional culture is then you will need to land in Shannon airport. Shannon is one hour from Galway. Galway is one hour from Rossaveal which is the main ferry port for boats to the Aran Islands. If you are coming from England then you can take a boat to Belfast and head to Dublin before heading to Galway.


Inis Mor is a very small island and the other two Aran Islands are even smaller. Inis Mor is about 8km in length and at its widest point is 2km wide. The narrowest point is 500 meters wide. There are 800 people living on Inis Mor. It is possible to travel the whole island in one day.

The other two Aran Islands are even smaller. You can get around them by walking in half a day each. They are very small in comparrison.

Between the Islands there are about 500 meters of water. So the islands are very close together with narrow channels seperating them.

Absolutely loved it! Wish we could have stayed longer

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!!
