From the traditional pubs, prehistoric Christian forts and heart warming locals, it’s not hard to wonder why this is the most popular of the Aran Islands. Explore the patchwork fields on foot, take a guided tour from a local resident, or hire a bicycle for the day for something a bit more independent. There is plenty to do and see whichever path you choose!
Inis Mór, the largest of the 3 islands, is home to 30,000 day-trippers in the summer months. Yet only about 900 people call this island home. After departing the ferry in Kilronan, the island’s main settlement, explore the patchwork fields, stone monuments and farmland either on foot, by renting bicycles, or hiring horse and trap or minibus.
Discover one of Ireland’s most important prehistoric monuments, Dún Aonghusa, sitting dramatically a top 100m cliffs that drops into the Atlantic Ocean. When along the coast, try to see if you can spot the resident seal colony!
