about

Inishmore, Inishmaan, Inisheer: wild, isolated, starkly beautiful and of great historical importance.

Lying in the Atlantic Ocean off Galway Bay, the Aran Islands are a place apart. Here island life has preserved many aspects of Irish culture - its language, customs and traditions. These islands bear witness to events from earliest times and have experienced Celtic occupation, the arrival of Christianity, invasions, sieges, famine and evictions. This history is evident in the massive Iron Age forts, the Early Christian ruins, and in the literature, songs and images from these 'three stepping stones out of Europe'.

A comprehensive, beautifully illustrated introduction to and lasting memento of these unique islands.
