“Sleep on beds of limestone, Between sheets of rain and rock, Under blankets of mist, Surrounded by a patchwork quilt of fields, Under a low roof of cloud.” ~Kieran Furey
The Aran Islands are located just off Galway and Doolin. A true Irish experience awaits, locals speak Irish as well as English in a setting of Celtic churches of historical significance including World Heritage site Dun Aonghasa which is set on dramatic 300 ft cliff edge. Because of its Celtic and Christian heritage, The Aran Islands has an unusually high number of ruins and sacred sites. Holy Ireland, the Island of saints and scholars has historically centred around Celtic and Christian pilgrimage. Just by exploring or being on the Aran Islands, one is on a path to connecting with their spiritual inner self and is being ‘blessed’.
