Go on board on a ferry at Rossaveal and let yourself be taken to a place where even the breeze speaks Gaelic. The Aran Islands comprise three islands - Inis Mór, Inis Meáin and Inis Óirr situated at the chops of Galway Bay. The names are Irish language for 'the big island', 'the middle island', 'the south island' correspondingly. The Aran Islands are rich in the language, mores and heritage of Ireland. Inishmore is the biggest of the three Aran isles. Sites to see embrace the appealing relics of Arkin's Castle, a Cromwellian fortress that maintained a barracks during the 17th and 18th centuries.
