Discover The archipelagos of the Atlantic coast. Ireland

Offshore, not far from the Atlantic coast, you will find several small archipelagoes hitherto attached to the island, but today accessible by sea or air. Some of them are actually inhabited. In Aran, the largest of these archipelagos, Gaelic traditions prevail, which lends more charm to these small wild lands.

    Made of thick wool, Aran sweaters represent one of the main productions of local handicraft. Decorated with geometric patterns, they are perfect for the harsh climate.

    Curraghs are typical boats of the Irish archipelagos: very light, they are extremely reliable in bad weather, typical of the region, but they are not very resistant.
