Overnight Trips to the Aran Islands

Are you planning a trip to the Aran Islands? Our Aran trips provide an alternative–and truly unique–way to get there: sailing trips to the Aran Islands on a 37ft luxury yacht!

Kick back and relax while your skipper literally sets sail for the Aran Islands, serving you lunch en route. You’ll get to explore Inishmore when you arrive and sample the local food and drink. Your accommodation is on the yacht, so you’ll return to your berth later in the evening to be gently rocked to sleep in the shelter of Kilronan Harbour. Breakfast is served at eight bells before casting off for home.

Availability for our overnight trips to the Aran Islands can be seen and booked using the calendar.
