Arranmore or Árainn Mhór is an island off the west coast of County Donegal on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way accessed by the Arranmore Ferry. Árainn Mhór means ‘large ridge’. The island lies 5 km off the coast near the port of Burtonport, County Donegal and can be reached by the Arranmore Ferry which operates from Burtonport daily.  At seven square miles (eighteen square km) in size, the island is the second biggest inhabited island in Ireland and the biggest of the Donegal islands.

A wonderfully peaceful place with a way marked trail leading from sandy beaches to the island’s rocky summit, providing spectacular views of the glittering sea, the cliffs, rock arches and the majestic mainland mountains; from Glen Head to Tory Island.

The crystal clear waters surrounding Arranmore provide great dive sites and sea angling, while the island’s freshwater lakes are home to brown and rainbow trout. Boats for sea angling can be hired and there are abundant cod, ling, conger eel, pollock, wrasse, skate, turbot and plaice. Birdwatchers will enjoy seeing fulmars and shags and climbers can tackle the steep cliffs.

(Translated by Google) Super. Very nice service. My car was personally parked by the ferryman, millimeter accurate. He had probably thought, before the Greenblooded Torrist scratched everything here, I play Dear Chauffeur;) Alone, the ferry ride through the beautiful landscape is just what this impressive island has to offer.(Original)Super. Sehr netter Service. Mein Auto wurde vom Fährer höchst persönlich eingeparkt, Millimeter genau. Der hatte sich bestimmtl gedacht, bevor der Grünschnabelige Torrist hier alles zerkratzt, spiele ich Lieber Chauffeur 😉 Alleine die Fahrt mit der Fähre durch die wunderschöne Landschaft stimmt darauf ein, was diese beeindruckende Insel noch weiter zu bieten hat.

The ferry was exactly on time both trips and no hanging about either. The blind girl at reception was very pleasant and because it was Mothers Day they gave me a free PASS !! Yahoo! Also they put me in to a draw for flowers and wine...so I am hoping to be the lucky Mummy!!Reversing the car onto the ferry was fun but on the way back one of the skippers reversed it for us as they were full capacity...ie 5 cars and a van. The water was calm ( unlike Tory) and the trip lasted only 20 mins. Take your camera as the passage over was very scenic .Again we were blessed with blush blue skies and light wind.... Typo..I meant nice girl at reception not blind.

We went for a diving wknd across on the blue ferry from Burtonport to Aranmore and the whole service was excellent from the ticket office to the staff driving our vehicles onto the ferry and so friendly too couldn't do enough for you.

I love Arranmore Island. The people are lovely and it is so peaceful and beautiful. I use the ferry a lot while visiting the island which I have done once a year for the past two years. They staff are lovely and go out of their way to chat and make you feel like they are genuinely interested in you. The crossing takes from 10 to 15 minutes, is comfortable and very beautiful. I love being on deck watching the amazing scenery as we sail over to the Island. I would recommend this part of the world to everyone and anyone who likes beautiful scenery, friendly people and peace and relaxation.
