A friend of ours runs an annual guided pilgrimage for the festival of Patrun to the Aran Island of Inis Oirr
. This year it will be held on I think on Thursday 14th June and it is a local saints 'feast' day on the island and truly a wonderful spiritual event to witness. I have made enquiries on the island and will confirm the date for you once I hear back. If you would like to go without a guide ...which is so easy to do as the whole island will be participating in the Partun...you will find it very easy to join in...you can book to travel with me here.
You can of course stay overnight or over the weekend and return with us on any of our multiple sailings through out the day from Inis Oirr to Doolin Pier.
I'll be back to confirm its the 14th June once I hear from the islanders.
