Aranmore Island, Ireland
Aranmore Aranmore Island Reviews
Feb 23, 2008
Aranmore is an island off the coast of Donegal, Ireland. It has a population of around 700, and during the summer months, this figure grows some years to almost 2000.
The Island has much to offer visitors. Its rugged beauty, its beaches and cliffs, are a sight savoured by many a visitor. The cliffs are on the Atlantic facing side of the island, where some of the views quite literally, take your breath away.
On the sheltered, inhabited side of the island, is a nest of small beaches, each one individual, serene, some even tranquil. It is in some of these bays and small inlets, that you will find the clearest and most inviting waters.
Sea angling is a tradition, and a must for all visiting. Ask around for someone to take you out on a summers day. There are a vast species of fish to be caught from the rocks, and in the shallow waters surrounding the island. Of course, rainbow and brown trout are regularly stocked in the lakes of Aran, and make a savory dish to whet anyones appetite.
