The Aran Islands are a group of three islands located at the mouth of Galway Bay on the west coast of Ireland. The islands are formed of exposed karst limestone, and where the stone is covered in green meadows hand-built rock walls delineate the fields with their livestock. There certainly is a great supply of stones here to make walls! The 1200 inhabitants primarily speak Irish, as well as English. Settlers from the 17th century built a self-sufficient economy growing potatoes and vegetables, making cloth from wool and leather goods from cattle. Visitors come by ferry in summer.

The islands supports arctic, Mediterranean and alpine plants side-by-side, due to the unusual environment. The stone surfaces marked by long crevices and gravel are variously covered by thin soil (made of seaweed and sand), grasses and flowers in season. Many visitors come, particularly in summer, to see the ruins, hear Irish spoken, Irish music played, and take in the awe-inspiring sea cliffs. Souvenir shops offer the famous Aran hand-knitted sweaters. If you miss the shops, then there is the Aran Sweater Museum!

Attractions of the islands are several Iron Age forts, stark views of the coastal rocks washed by the savage weather of Galway Bay, and experiencing life adapted to the absence of luxuries. Dun Aengus is a Bronze Age and Iron Age fort on the edge of a 100m cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on Inishmore. The stone walls are masterpieces of patient engineering. Depending on how far you walk, ride hired bicycle or mini-bus, or take horse-drawn carriage, these islands will introduce you to unforgettable traditional Ireland.
