We also traverse many of Aran’s natural wonders from the barren limestone karst moulded by the ice age to Poll na bPeist (The Worm Hole) – a natural carved swimming pool situated under the cliffs near Dun Aonghus, a spiritual place where you become enchanted and where nature is totally in command. We can visit Leaba Diarmuid agus Gráinne, the lover’s bed or five thousand year old wedge tomb, evidence left by our early ancestors who lived here when Galway Bay was a lake and the islands were one forested landmass or many of Aran’s wonderful bronze age fortresses like Dun Aonghusa and its world renowned cliffs, the Black Fort with its magnificent storm beaches, Dun Eochla, from where you can see five counties and the quieter and less well know fortress like Dun Beag, Dun Eoghnachta and Buaile an Ghabhain.
Perhaps you prefer to see the flowers and fauna, the month of May is when the island’s flowers are at their best. The rare orchids and gentians are in full bloom.
Equally as important, we give you an insight to our lives here on these beautiful islands on Europe’s most westerly frontier.
Our guides have a passion for their work and many are small farmers who have a special understanding of the islands and its terrain and in their daily lives live here continuing to preserve its unique culture. We aim to give you, the visitor, an experience to treasure and a time to remember. So come and share with us, the magic, that is Aran.
