Aran Islands - Oileáin Árann

Aran Islands are made up of Inishmore, Inishmaan and Inisheer.

The aran islands are the high peaks of a submerged limestone reef that runs out to the sea from County Clare. Inishmore is the largest of the three islands, it has many sites of interest including the Dun Aengus stone fort, Clochan-na-Carraige and Arkin's Castle. Inishmaan is the middle island and was the setting of the film Riders to the Sea. Inisheer is the farthest island and has remains of several forts and churches.

Visitor Attractions Aran Islands County Galway

Dun Aonghasa - Aran Islands

Perched spectacularly on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic ocean, this is the largest of the prehistoric stone forts of the Aran Islands. It is enclosed by three massive dry-stone walls and a "chevaux-de-frise" consisting of tall blocks of limestone set vertically into the ground to deter attackers. The fort is about 900m from the Visitor Centre and is approached over rising ground.
