Hotels in Galway Near the Aran Islands

During your stay in Galway, why not visit the famous Aran Islands which are massively popular among tourists and Irish people alike. The Aran Islands are located just off the coast of Galway and offer visitors a truly unique Irish experience as the first language in the area is Irish and the area is rich in Irish tradition and culture. 

During your stay at Victoria Hotel Galway, our reception staff will be more than happy to inform you of the bus and ferry times so you can visit the Aran Islands at a time that suits you. A ferry to the Aran Islands departs from Rossaveal which is a 50 minute drive from Victoria Hotel Galway. Once you arrive on the islands, you will officially be in the home of the famous aran sweaters, Red Bull Cliff Diving, celtic churches and incredible scenic views as well as friendly locals who will be on hand to chat and tell you about their beautiful islands. It is worth exploring all three of the islands - Inis Mor, Inis Meain and Inis Oirr.

After your visit to the Aran Islands, return to Victoria Hotel Galway and relax and unwind in our comfortable and spacious rooms in Galway City Centre. You can also dine in the Vic Bar or Alexandra's Restaurant or hit the town of Galway for the night. Book direct for the best rates for your stay at Victoria Hotel in Galway today.

'Highly Recommend'

"The location was perfect. We took a train to and from Galway - it was a short, easy walk to the hotel from the station. We took a day trip to the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher - the pick-up was literally across the street. Shopping and nightlife was also an easy walk."
