The Aran Islands are a group of three islands located on the west coast of Ireland at the mouth of Galway Bay. From west to east the islands are: Inishmore – the largest; Inishmaan – the second largest and Inisheer – the smallest. Between the three islands there are approx. 1,200 inhabitants.
Inishmore, being the largest island has a busy tourist industry. Its main village is Kilronan, which is home to the island’s ferry port. On the west side of the island is the prehistoric fort of Dun Aengus. It is a popular tourist attraction and is thought to date from the Iron Age. The closest mainland point to Inisheer is the coastal village of Doolin, Co Clare, which is shown on the chart to give a sense of perspective to the islands’ location, relative to the mainland.
This is a very attractive chart. Note how both the westernmost island and also the compass rose float over the chart edge as a nice artistic feature. Surround lighting illuminates the islands beautifully. A black frame and black mount completes the work.
