Travel from Dublin to the very edge of Europe and experience the timeless beauty of the Aran Islands on this grand tour by rail and air.
Hop on a train at Heuston Station and travel through the peaty heartlands of Ireland to the rugged west coast. Then transfer by road to Connemara Airport for your scenic flight to Inis Mor, largest of the Aran Islands.
Washed by fierce Atlantic breakers, the Aran Islands have a rugged beauty and atmosphere that is all their own. Life here has always been tough and little has changed in the landscape since the time of the Celts and Early Christians. Aran is one place where you can connect with the true spirit of Gaelic Ireland.
Lie on top of one of the 100 foot cliffs and gaze down with awe at the crashing surf below. Marvel at the network of drystone walls built by gruelling physical labour to protect the precious fields. See the magnificent fort of Dún Aengus and visit the tranquil monastic settlement of Seven Churches.
On your return to Galway there should be time for shopping and perhaps a pint of Guinness before you board your train for the journey back to Dublin
