July 2005 - Aran Islands, Ireland

This was taken in Ireland on the Aran Island of Inis Oirr. These islands are a great way to spend a day. You can rent a bike, or get a tour by jaunting car. Access is by boat so if the weather is not cooperating you may not be able to cross on some days.



The three Aran Islands, Inis Mór Island (Big Island), Inis Meáin Island (Middle island) and Inis Oírr Island (East island) are situated in a north westerly, south easterly direction at the mouth of Galway Bay, Ireland. They are famous for their geological formation, historical monuments and their linguistic and cultural heritage. The Irish(Gaelic) language is still spoken here and in the twenty first century all native born islanders are bilingual in both Irish and English.

  2. I have been to this island and recall its beauty. As I recall, it was a cold and windy day in late September.
