Ireland in general and Aran Islands in particular are perfect destinations to all active people. This country has so much to offer! Each traveler should discover it for himself but let me give you three places I’ve been to and was happy about it.
Galway: the Cellar Bar
I’m pretty sure that Galway has many excellent bars and restaurants. So why this place? Mostly because the Cellar Bar was chosen by my friends who are locals. And the things I ate there were very tasty. I took a dish called ‘Grilled Fillet of Galway Bay Salmon’ without red onion. The fish was very well done. Delicious meal plus pleasant interior design.
Aran Islands: the American Bar
You can’t miss it as it is located next to the central crossroads in Kilronan so you’ll probably see it just after you enter to the village. I ate a very tasty hamburger there. The interior design is quite interesting: some old photos of American movie stars. There were many locals dining when I went there and it was intriguing to hear them speaking Irish. A nice atmosphere of friendly neighborhood community is all over this place. Old local smiling people are always interesting so if you want to meet them the American Bar is a proper place.
Aran Islands: Tigh Fitz
Finally, the place where I stayed. Tigh Fitz provides a perfect place while visiting the island. The views from window are stunning and proximity of the sea brings the sound of waves. Most of all Penny- the owner- is charming person who will take care of you. Highly recommended!
Here is little something I made after my visit on Inishmore. Truly unforgettable time and a fascinating place I wish to visit again.
