Upon arriving on the island we were picked up and brought to our accomodation at the Aran Islands Hotel. The hotel was beautiful and had a great location right by the ocean with a great view from the dining area. The staff were so friendly and constantly there to help us, even when we had some rowdy neighbours on the second night. The food there was incredible and we had the fresh fish on the first night which was delicious. I had goats cheese bruschetta and cheesecake which was indescribable! The goats cheese was fresh from the local goats on the island and all the fish was freshly caught. I don't normally eat fish but I had to try the local fish in this case.
Our room was huge and we had a large single and a large double bed with a large TV. We were provided with clean towels both days, lovely toiletries and a kettle with teabags/coffee etc. The hotel was very well maintained and the waitresses in the dining area both in the evening and morning were very friendly and welcoming. Even when we checked out, we had s lift to the ferry port and they saw us off just as friendly as when we arrived. I would definitely recommend this hotel for your stay on the islands and the tour we did around the island can be booked at the reception.
