Fodor's Expert Review Aran Camping and Glamping

Inis Mor, Frenchman's Beach, Aran Islands, Co. Galway, Ireland

Aran's glamping units, or clocháns, are igloo shaped (inspired by monks' medieval beehive huts that made a guest appearance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and fully heated, with en suite and cooking facilities. They're perched right on the beach in Kilronan–-alongside larger, conventionally shaped tigíns (good old-fashioned camping facilities) for €10 a night. Best part for those seeking a quiet getaway experience is that bachelorette and bachelor parties are not welcome.
