Aran Islands
 
Aran Islands

The Aran Islands are a group of three islands located at the mouth of Galway Bay, on the west coast of Ireland. Inis Mor is the largest island and has about 800 inhabitants, Inis Meain is 5 km and has two pubs for 250 people, Inis Oirr is the smallest of the three islands and has a castle that can be visited.

The islands' geology is mainly karst limestone and is thus more closely related to The Burren in Co. Clare (to the south) than to the granites of Connemara to the north.

==== ARAN ISLAND - ATTRACTION

There are several Iron Age forts on Inishmore, including Dn Aengus and the Black Fort.

The islands have had an influence on world literature and arts disproportionate to their size. The unusual cultural and physical history of the islands has made them the object of visits by a variety of writers and travellers who recorded their experiences.

Visitors come in large numbers, particularly in the summer time.
