Self-Guided Aran Islands Tour + the Western Way (Ireland)

Self-Guided Aran Islands Tour from Galway

Your walking adventure begins with an Aran Islands tour from Galway, taking the ferry to the largest of the islands: Inishmore. This part of Ireland is unique; it is rich in poetic roots and haunting history. The walking trail we recommend also offers some of the finest scenery that Ireland has to offer along the Wild Atlantic Way.

The Aran Islands have been dubbed “One of The World’s Top Island Destinations” by National Geographic. Describing them as an “Unspoilt, beautiful, and dramatic destination for archaeology, bird-watching, and spectacular hill walking.” We couldn’t agree more!

After your short but sweet Aran Islands walking tour, you will return to the west coast and enjoy walking part of the Western Way in beautiful, wild Connemara.

If you’re keen to explore more of that part of Ireland, take a look at our self guided Western Way walking tours in Connemara for a wider variety of route options.
