Aran Islands

Which are made up of three islands. The islands date back more than 300 million years and are renowned for their well-preserved Celtic monuments, over 300 miles of dry stone walls. It is a rare culture that is preserved by the islanders.

I hope my snapshots gave you some ideas of the amazing beauty of Inis Mór, which was the island I visited today by the 40 minutes ferry ride over the Irish Sea.Perched on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Dún Aonghasa is the largest of the prehistoric stone forts of the Aran Islands (c. 1100 BC) and re-fortified around 700 AD. It took me more than half an hour to walk up and 20 minutes down.
