Very busy. Recommend getting to the ferry a bit early (at least 30 minutes) if you want a specific seat (or if on a tour bus, sit close to the exit so as to get on the ferry sooner.)

The boasts were on time and were clean. The loading and unloading was efficient. It was a nice trip as the weather was fine.

You can visit it using ferries. I enjoyed the ferries trip. It is a must because it is difficult to live in such extreme conditions. There is no tree at all on the island.

We visited the Aran Islands Office on Forster Court Road in Galway to book a ferry transfer to Inishmore in February, thus low season. To our surprise, the lady who attended us told us off with quite some disdain, saying everything was on the internet...More
