Location: Inis Mor. The largest of the Aran Islands.
How I travelled there: Took an Aran Island Ferry from the pier in Ros a Mhil, Connemara. (You can also avail of an Aran Island ferry service from Doolin Pier)
When there, you need to:
Rent a bike and cycle around the island.
Check out the gorgeous beaches
Visit the famous Poll na bPeist (this is where the Red Bull Cliff Dive takes place each year. Unfortunately, I ran out of time and didn’t get to see it during my trip. Definitely going to go back to see it however) If you don’t have a fear of heights, the Dún Aonghasa cliff is worth a visit.
All these years I have been driving through the village of Kilcolgan … how did I NOT know it was home to this incredible mansion, albeit a burned out shell of a mansion, but still no less a beautiful one?
