Family History

Prepare for a warm Irish welcome as you board the luxury Aran Island Ferries vessels (including a full bar and refreshment service) from the sheltered fishing harbour of Rossaveel in Connemara, Galway. Owned by the O’Briens, this family has an enduring relationship with the Aran Islands since they began to trade turf there in the 1800s. Today, it offers year-round sailings there and back via four state-of-the-art vessels with a capacity for up to 297 passengers.

The ferries are available for private charter as well as their regular scheduled sailings.
