The islands, located off the west coast of Ireland, ranked seventh in the top 10 honeymoon destinations by Big 7 Travel.
The list, which is based on digital data such as Google trends, Instagram hashtags and dedicated Pinterest boards, ranked locations based on their overall romance, a few unique things to do and affordability.
Described as a “must-visit for any couple looking to enjoy a romantic, secluded stay,” the Aran Islands rank among the world’s best-known honeymoon spots.
They placed just behind destinations such as New England, which took the top spot, Greece, Zanzibar and the Maldives.
