Established in 1970 by James Coen and Ralph Langan

We operate the only Island Hopping Service between the West Coast of Ireland
and Inis Meáin, Inis Mór and Inis Óirr.

The Ultimate Island Experience

Glistening on the horizon of Galway Bay and close to the spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher, the Arann Islands have a weathered history and rugged landscape which folds together the ancient and modern in three green, stone walled, jewels of land.

Every year hundreds of visitors fly with us to experience the vibrancy of nature and culture that make these three islands a unique Irish destination.

With frequent daily flights at less than twenty minutes from lift-off to touch-down, Aer Arann Islands is the logical choice for commuting locals, visitors making the most of a day trip, and especially for a fast hop to an island holiday.

All flights depart and arrive to Connemara Regional Airport, reachable by a scenic drive and featuring free parking facilities; or a convenient shuttle bus service from the city centre.

In addition to our regular service, Aer Arann Islands also provide charter flights for freight, passengers, scenic flights and more.
