The Aran Islands Hotel is so new that it did not come up in any of my books about Ireland, nor did it come in my Trip Advisor search. Thus, I thought it my duty to share our wonderful experience at this hotel. The hotel is no more than a half a mile from the ferry landing and is accessible to the few but wonderful shops in the main village of Inis Mor. We arrived at the hotel, warmed up with a pint in the pub and headed out to rent bikes. Our room had a balcony view of the island and was beautiful and comfortable. We spent the day biking to sites like Black Fort (where we became engaged!) and around the island. Little did I know that my now-fiancee had arranged to have champagne waiting in our room upon our return--and the wonderful staff was more than willing to accomodate this request. We celebrated our engagement and Halloween (the same day) in the dining room and pub that evening. We had so much fun with the bartenders and the live music. We were sad to leave the next morning but were happy to be escorted to the ferry by the owners of the hotel and the musician from the night before! This is truly a wonderful place and we look forward to returning someday.
