DescriptionSpend the day on the largest of the legendary Aran Islands with a flight to Inishmore at the mouth of Galway Bay. Covering an area of some 12 square miles (31 square kilometers), the island is famous for its strong Irish culture, loyalty to the Irish language, and a wealth of pre-Christian and Christian ancient sites. After you check-in at Dublin Heuston for a 07:30 train service to Galway, transfer by road to Connemara Airport for the flight to Inishmore, where you will embark on a tour of the Island, with time for lunch at Kilronan. Prior to the 20th century, Inishmore was more commonly called Inis Bant, and the Irish word Irish Árainn is an apt description for the island as it means 'long ridge.' Composed of limestone pavements and isolated rocks, enjoy a scenic tour of the island before visiting the magnificent ancient fort of Dún Aengus. With its sheer cliffs and dramatic seascapes, Dún Aengus has been called 'the most magnificent barbaric monument in Europe.' Your tour includes return flights and transfers back to Galway City, with time to shop before your return train to Dublin Heuston, arriving back in the city at 20:45.
