Foster Street, Aran Islands, Republic of Ireland
These three islands lie across the mouth of Galway Bay, about 30 miles out to sea. The Aran Islands consist of Inishmaan, Inisheer and the largest, Inishmore. These are Irish-speaking islands where old traditions still exist. Though modernizations have taken root, many practices remain including Currach racing, fishing and the knitting of distinctive hand-made sweaters or "ganseys". Known for glamping, this collection of naturally scenic karst limestone sites, is speckled with grikes and clints on its limestone surface. Inis Mór is the largest of the Aran Islands and is home to the World Heritage site, Dun Aonghasa and the impressive fort of Dun Aonghasa is set on the edge of the 300 Foot Cliffs. From natural marvels to historic sites, there is much to explore here. The islands are accessible via ferry or light aircraft.
