A trip to the islands offers a journey through time, as well as an encounter with the old Ireland, the mythical Ireland. For this reason, the islands are quite fascinating.Inis Mór – (meaning big island) as its name suggests is the biggest of the 3 Aran Islands. Lying in a North – Westerly direction across Galway Bay Inis Mór is approximately 12km in length and 3km in width.
Its principle port and village is Kilronan ( Cill Rónáin ) and it is here that most visitors are first introduced to the island. Kilronan has seen a lot of development in the past 10 years and is a lively village with many of todays’ modern conveniences, comfortably co-existing with traditional practices and culture. The sailing time to Inis Mór is 40 minutes.
