  • Long Distance Travel

    Galway Transportation

    On Internet I had seen that there were a few buses daily from Clifden to Dublin and I decided to take the 9:15 bus. The bus stop in Clifden is on Market Street, not even a minute away from Clifden Town Hostel where I stayed. The bus arrived in time and I left my luggage in the compartment below (large bags must be put there). On the bus I paid...

  • Ferries

    Inishmore Transportation

    Aran Island Ferries We stayed in Galway the night before arriving on Inis Mor. We bought a ticket from the office near Eyre Square (25 euros). The bus left Galway around 9am for a 10:30 ferry out of Rossaveal. I took a dramamine for motion sickness, but the ride wasn't too bad. It was slightly grey and we sat on top with windbreakers on. In the...

  • Bikes

    Inishmore Transportation

    This bicycle hire is next to the harbour. I cannot remember anymore how much we paid, but it was eight years ago so it would be old price anyway. First I got a bike of which the gears were not functioning and when I went back to ask for another one they made me feel it was my fault that it was not working! I hadn't ridden it for a meter at that...

  • Tours

    Inishmore Transportation

    You’ll notice these as soon as you get off the ferry. It is a good option for people who are day tripping, since Inishmore is fairly large and the minibuses stop at the main sights. They can also be used as a taxi, though the prices are pretty random (they are negotiable). It is better to let the tour groups go by first, if you are using it as a...

  • Take a ferry

    In Galway you can catch at the TIO or across from it. Aran Ferries runs a shuttle bus to the dock; the crossing is about 20 minutes and cost is about $30 but with discounts for families, studends and groups. Island Ferries is similar. Both depart from Rossaveal and have 5 or 6 crossings per day. These are both to Inismore but there is one that goes...

  • horse-carriages will take you to Dun...

    As soon as you arrive in Kilronan on the island of Inishmore, you will have different possibilities to get to Dun Aengus :You may rent a bike, a scooter or a horse-drawn carriage. I took the horse-carriage for 3 Euros per person uphill to Dun Aengus, and then I walked back from there.

  • Take the ferry to the Aran Islands

    There are different places, where you may take the ferry from in order to get to the Aran Islands:Doolin, Galway City and Rossaveal.I took the ferry from Doolin, BUT there the tides are quite low and when I took the ferry in 1990, there was a shuttle-service by small boats from the landingstage to the big ship, that could not get to the pier during...

  • Fly to the Arran Islands by Aer Arran

    There is a possibility to fly by small aircrafts to the Arran Islands from Spiddal / a small village west of Galway city.44 Euros is the return-ticket and it includes a free shuttle-bus from Galway city. The flight is just about 30 minutes and will give you an excellent opportunity to see and take pictures of the island and the mysterious Fort...

  • Car's the way to go

    The easiest way to get around County Galway is by car.We enjoyed the freedom that we had with our hirer car - being able to stop on route to take a photo of a castle or a hairy sheep!

  • INISHMORE, Aran Islands:By...

    INISHMORE, Aran Islands:By ferry from Rossaveal, Connemara, Co. Galway. A return ticket is 15 IEP and the trip only takes 30 minutes with the fastest new boat 'Draiocht na Farraige' and a bit more with the slower boats.More information and timetable on the Island Ferries' website

    INISHMORE, Aran Islands:There are vans that take you to the main sights of Inishmore waiting in Kilronan. It costs around 5 IEP and you will see a lot of the island, get inside information (like: 'The oldest woman on Inishmore is 109 years old and that's her house over there') and you will be brought to Dun Aengus and to the 7 churches at least.

  • INISHMORE, Aran Islands:Rent a...

    INISHMORE, Aran Islands:Rent a bike.It's 6 IEP a day at the Aran Bike rental in the white shed right of the pier when arriving. Be careful - saddles are really hard, the island is more hilly than you think and as soon as you leave the main road there's offroad paths....
