Me and my friends visited here last weekend.
And we had a great time there! with amazing landscape and kindiest people.

You can get there by ferry or airplane.
If you want to look around the whole island, I recommend stay 1 night.
You will start the tour before the ferry arrive (11am).
The hostel package deal was only 37 euro. 2 way ferry and accomodation.
There is also connection bus between harbor and city centre which is 6 euro for both ways.

It's priceless to be there!!

Some of the staff we encountered with this company were very rude others were helpful and friendly. Overall, this was the most affordable way to get to the island and it was a comfortable ride with nice seats and trashcans (a must when traveling with a toddler!). There was also concessions where I paid €1.80 for a can of coke, so note to anyone reading this would be bring your own drinks and snacks unless you want to pay a premium for them.

with Go Ahead Tours as an optional tour, and I would recommend the ferry operators, the boat was large, warm, and comfortable.

Took the morning ferry on a fairly calm day out to Aran Island and back at 4:30 pm.. Fast, efficient, clean, nice staff.

Ferry leaves promptly! Nice, pleasant ride (but we had a calm day). Well worth a trip out to the main island. It's an hour ride.

We loved our trip to Inis Meain, and frankly I was a little worried, it being the day after a big storm blew in from England. The crew was lovely and helped us with luggage and in and out...no problems at all....a great ride over and back.
