(Entertainment is dependent upon time of year.)


Culture of the Island: Arranmore belongs to the Gaeltacht. ' Gaeltacht' is the Irish language word meaning an Irish speaking region. In Ireland, the Gaeltacht refers to a district where the government recognizes that the Irish language is the predominant language, taught and spoken in the schools and at home. Although, in Arranmore English is the first language spoken. These Gaeltacht districts were first officially recognized during the early years of the Irish Free State, after the Gaelic Revival, as part of the government policy to restore the language.

Every summer, students from all over Ireland come for several weeks to immerse themselves in Arranmore's strong Irish culture They stay with the local families, where they speak only Irish to the hosting families in the quest to perfect their language skills They also attend daily ceilies, traditional Irish dance gatherings, hosted by the teachers. These ceilies are open to all children and teens who wish to attend.

Some Interesting Facts About Arranmore Island: Arranmore has been inhabited since the early Iron Ages, 800BC. There is a prehistoric triangular fort located on the southern part of the island.
There are several 'Mass Rocks' to be found throughout Arranmore. These were used as places of worship during the penal days in Ireland when mass was outlawed.
Arranmore once had a population of 1200 inhabitants, today is has approximately 600 inhabitants. Although in the summer, the population increases significantly as islanders 'come home', and tourists arrive.
'Arranmore Way' is the official hiking/walking path which circles the perimeter of the island.
'Green Island' is a magnificent bird sanctuary which can be seen from Arranmore, but can not be entered.
There are numerous ship wrecks in the waters surrounding Arrammore, including the Andrew Nugent.
St Crone's church was built in 1825. It has been improved and maintained throughout the years, and stands beside the wild Atlantic sea.

The Arranmore Ferry takes both foot passengers and cars, and runs every half hour. Should you decide to leave your car at Burton Port, parking is free, but limited depending on the time of year. The ferry schedule changes with the seasons, so please check their website for current information. The crossing is highly scenic, passing many uninhabited islands and ruins, and takes 20 minutes.
