(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.

CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK

CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK
  • 5 of 5
This was my second time in Ireland but my first time to Arranmore Island.
What a neat place! My husband, son, and I enjoyed it very much.

The house was immaculate! Every room was awesome and spacious. The beds were so comfortable (I am a sheet snob!!) and I slept so well.

The island is beautiful. I bought many postcards and am just now getting calls from friends saying OMG how beautiful the beaches and such look on their cards. Job well done. (The stamps were a bit more expensive than here, totally worth it although!)

This time next year I would love to bring my Mother back to Arranmore, I think she would adore it!

Best,
Anne Chivari

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We went to the island because my girlfriend and I were in Ireland for a wedding in Donegal... and the island was only a 15 minute ferry away from where we were staying. We took a ten minute cab to the pier and there were three or four ferries running back and fourth to the island, which you can see in the distance.

The house is awesome. So much bigger than we thought. Love the gigantic windows with the cool views. The house is super big but felt homey at the same time.

When walking around the island you feel like you have gone through a time machine. Super cool. Loved the food and the pubs the most. My girlfriend liked the horses and the sweet beaches and the views from places like lighthouse. Again, felt like we were in another era.

Hope to get back some day. Next time we will probably stay for longer than 4 nights.

Also, my girlfriend thought it would be cool if you had a guest book at the house, we could not find one around anywhere and would have liked to write in that as well. Thank you from both of us for the stay.

FRIENDLY PEOPLE AND STUNNING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I came here for our 10th wedding anniversary.

The house was immaculate. The home itself is very large, larger than we realized, yet it is very cozy. The turf fire came in handy on the rainy nights.

Tina you were very accommodating and we appreciate you opening your home up to us.

The island is great, the people very friendly and helpful with directions and such.

Memories that will last us a lifetime.

Best,
Nick and Fran

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND WONDERFUL DESTINATION!

  • 5 of 5
I had a destination wedding on Arranmore Island! It was the best choice I have ever made, besides saying yes to my husband of course! :)

We absolutely love Arranmore. I, naturally, have a bias to the island as I have relations there... but the island is out of this world. The green cliffs, the deep blue ocean waters, the friendly people of the island, the quaint pubs as well as a lively disco, the DELICIOUS sea food.... the list goes on and on.
Arranmore is a must see.
I am 24 years old, and my husband is 27.... we are young and enjoy this place more than any other place we have ever visited!

Christina's Sea view Cottage is a large yet cozy home.Each room is so perfectly maintained and decorated. The turf fire place... oh take me back now!!

All of the guests of my wedding...at one point or another... came to visit myself and my husband at Christina's sea view cottage...and they were astounded by the views this home has of the oceans.

If you are looking for a fun girls weekend and want to party it up...Arranmore is the place.... if you are a couple looking for peace and tranquility...Arranmore is the place! And Christina's cottage is a perfect place to stay for either occasion.
Lots of space! Lots to do! And all around a perfect place.
Can't wait to go back this Summer. I feel so at peace there!
Thanks again!!

We had a lot of fun. The home is beautiful. 5 out of 5 stars. Wish we could have stayed longer than 4 nights though. A week would have been good.
Thank you for the stay Tina.
All the best,

WEEKEND OF PEACE AND FUN

  • 4 of 5
My Husband and I went to Arranmore for a weekend out of the country. We had heard from a friend about this quiet island. We loved it and it was just what we needed. Wish we waited until summer, as it rains a lot less in May/June/July/Aug....but we wanted to do something like this for Valentine's day!
The fresh sea air is overwhelming. Long walks togather. Nights in the pubs. Events in the local community center. The small church on the beach was so romantic, we even attended a mass and really enjoyed it.
Bought fresh fish and cooked it our selves. My husband is a chef and he made a white fish pie. Most amazing meal I have had in some time.
We did see lots of different animals on the island but could not find anywhere that rented out horses. Would be interested in doing that if we came back!
House was very clean. Read someone elses' review of the home and it said the pictures did not do it justice.... totally true. The view from this house is a post card. each window in the house is like a painting. Art at its finest.
Reccomendation: Go in summer months (less rain) Find somewhere for horseback riding (LONG walk to the light house) Bring a pair of wellies and bring lots of memory on your camera for loads of pictures (you WILL need it!)
