Aran Island Ferries
Located in the heart of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands offer visitors a glimpse into a way of life that has long since disappeared from most of the country.
The Islands' raw beauty and charm leaves visitors longing to return again and again. While the South - West coast of the island battles with the Atlantic, the North - East coast offers smooth passage for visitors between the mainland at Ros a' Mhíl and the Islands.
The Islands seem to defy their size by all they have to offer: breath-taking scenery, ecclesiastical ruins from early Christian times, medieval castles, cliffs, prehistoric stone forts (including the famous Dn Aonghasa (Dun Aengus) ring fort), sandy beaches, clean air, unique flora and fauna and a rich folklore that the islanders are proud to recount.
Aran Island Ferries operate a fleet of luxury, purpose-built ferries that vary in passenger capacity to accommodate private charter, as well as our scheduled sailings and ensure that our customers enjoy the best possible service.
All our boats are wheelchair accessible (please call in advance in order to ensure maximum comfort and efficiency) and (except for the Sea Sprinter) have a snack bar serving light refreshments and alcoholic beverages.
