The Aran Islands are about 40 minutes by ferry off the coast of Galway. I visited the biggest of the 3 islands, Inis Mor.
I rented a bike and rode around the entire island. It was probably around 15-20 miles around, so I definitely had a workout yesterday. Actually, I’m still kind of sore from it.
The best view of the island was from Dun Aonghasa. It was on the very far side of the island from the pier and it was pretty much like walking up a mountain, but the views from atop were pretty amazing.
Here’s a view looking straight down off the edge. It was kind of hard to take this because it was wet and slippery from the sea breeze, but I managed not to fall off. Apparently 5 people fell off from this same spot last year so I guess I made history by not falling off.
