The Aaron Islands consist of three separate Islands. The biggest one you should really visit. There's a smaller town at the ferry stop, where you can get accomodation, go shopping or visit a bar.
The nature is exceptional and you can watch it by bycicles or take a sightseeing bus. Even historical background you can watch at the stone age fort 'Dun Angus'. Renting a bycicle is not expensive at all, I would recommend to explore the area that way.
If you intend to go there, you have to check the ferry schedules at the coastal city of Galway, at the tourist information.
