Three Islands of Adventure.

Always wishing to visit the Aran Islands i decided it was now time to do so .Although Inishmore is the only island with a summit in excess of a 100m that is no reason to not visit Inisheer(57m) and Inishmaan(79m). To me Inishsheer is the most stunning of the three.You have an option of two ferryports Doolin in Clare and Rossaveel in Galway i decided on the latter using the services of Aran Island Ferries.Sailing on the morning ferry i arrived to the port of Kilronan on Inishmore having already enjoyed my time on the other two. Depending on the time you wish to spend on the island you are spoilt for the number of walking routes visiting the summit area with Dun Eochla fort and then to continue to the world famous Dun Aonghasa fort visting Poll na bPeist(wormhole) in route to name but a few.Yes these islands are truly worth a visit.
