Arranmore Island

Probably the most accessible of all the Gaeltacht Islands, thanks to Donegal Airport, Arranmore, has a resident population of approximately 600.

From the island’s rolling hills, observe views of the Rosses region (Na Rosa), the islands and the Donegal Mountains as a backdrop or visit two of the islands lovely beaches, at Aphort or Leabgarrow.

A place to get away from it all and yet mainland Donegal is just a 15 minute boat journey.

Arranmore Island is situated along the Wild Atlantic Way path and well worth a visit. During the 15-20 minute scenic journey from Burtonport to Arranmore, a wide range of wildlife can be seen and you may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of our regular visitors, the Bottlenose Dolphins.
