The Aran Islands, Inis Mor, Inish Meain and Inis Oirr, sit in the mouth of Galway Bay, and continue to draw visitors back time after time. The three islands, whose names translate as Big Island, Middle Island and East Island, have three very different yet equally enchanting personalities. They are rich in culture and heritage, and Gaelic is still spoken here as a way of life, rather than a manufactured tourist incentive.

Inis Mor is something of a treasure trove for historians, with over 50 monuments scattered over its unique flattened rock surface, ranging from Christian, pre Christian to Celtic mythological heritage. Natural attractions here include the 'worm hole', a large square hole beside the sea, and the 'puffing holes', where, in rough seas, the raging water fountains out of these inland holes. There are many arts and crafts on the island, most famously the Aran jumper but also basket weaving and traditional dance. There are sandy beaches with turquoise waters, and villages with plenty of places to eat and drink, and regular festivals to enjoy.

Inis Meain, as the least visited of the three, is also the quietest, and the perfect place to find sanctuary and release from everyday life. The hilly landscape is a balm to the soul as you stroll the paths or take in the crystal clear views over the sea to the Cliffs of Moher. A favourite retreat of the famous Irish playwrite Synge, this lovely island retains much culture, with courses on poetry and dance. There are also a number of choices when it comes to where to eat and drink.

The smallest island, Inis Oirr, is closest to The Burren, and offers some lovely views towards this eclectic landscape of colour and texture. Inis Oirr has much of the atmosphere of a traditional fishing village, with clear waters dotted with boats, and fishermen landing their catch every evening. Just 3km by 3km, the island is crying out for you to explore its tiny hills and valleys, visit the lighthouse, or walk to the shipwreck of The Plassey. At the days end, you can then relax in the traditional music bar, with a fine reputation for good music, or visit the arts centre to try your hand on one of the music or arts courses.

These special islands make a wonderful day out during your cottage holiday in County Galway.
