Aran Islands Tours from Dublin

Aran Islands Tours from Dublin

A trio of rugged, windswept islands found off of Ireland’s Atlantic Coast, the Aran Islands are renowned for their sleepy fishing villages, Iron Age ruins, and sweeping coastal cliffs. Here are your options for visiting the islands from Dublin. 

Full-Day Tours

With just a day to take in the highlights of Ireland’s West Coast, time is of the essence, so opt to fly out to Inis Mor, the largest of Ireland’s Aran Islands, from Connemara Airport. On a full-day tour from Dublin, you can soak up the scenery on the train ride to Galway, before transferring to Connemara for a thrilling 10-minute flight to the island. Once on the island, you’ll have time to check off the top attractions, including Kilronan village and Dun Aengus fort.

Multi-Day Tours

Multi-day tours mean you can maximize your time and check off multiple destinations, with a tour guide on hand to make sure you don't miss anything. Take a 3-, 4-, or 7-day tour of West Ireland from Dublin to explore the natural wonders of the Wild Atlantic Way; marvel at the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren; enjoy a walking tour of Galway City; and cruise out to the Aran Islands. Most tours include accommodation, as well as selected meals, entrance fees, and activities.

Things to Know

  • Day tours from Dublin typically last 12 to 14 hours, so prepare for a long day.
