Exploring The Aran Islands

Currarevagh House enjoys a central location that is ideal for guests wanting to explore the region and visit the Aran Islands.

Rich in the language, culture and heritage of Ireland, the Aran Islands provide a popular day trip from Currarevagh.

Comprising of three islands, Inis Mor, Inis Meain, and Inis Oirr (literally translated, not very creatively, as the “big island”, the “middle island”, and the “south island” respectively), they are situated in Galway Bay and can be reached by ferry from Rossaveal, a 30 minute drive from us.

A fascinating tradition of Irish culture has existed on the islands for thousands of years, with ancient monuments and prehistoric stone forts of particular interest. Coupled with the timeless natural landscape weathered by wild seas, and dramatic cliffs are the meandering stone walls and quiet beaches.

Not to be missed!
