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.

Inishmor is the biggest of the Aran Islands and you would be doing well to walk it all in one go. It could be broken into three sections, the West, the Middle and the East. I took in the middle section as it contains a lot of the highlights. Starting in Kilronan Village follow the road West for a few kilometers. You will then see a road on the left leading up to the old signal station. About 100 metres behind this lies the Fort Dun Eochla and if you are looking to bag the highest point on the island the trig point is about 100 metres South West of this fort. It's difficult to spot as it's built into the wall.

From here follow the trail North down to another road. Turn right and head East over to the unique Poll na bPeist (The Wormhole) where the Red Bull cliff diving was held. Further on is the magnificent Dun Aonghsa fort built on the side of a cliff. After the fort head down through the visitor centre and follow the lower coast road East back to Kilronan, stopping off in Tigh Watys from some well earned refreshments.
