Aran Islands: Inis Mor

Location: Inis Mor. The largest of the Aran Islands.

How I travelled there: Took the 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.

Where to go for food & drink: Ti Joe Wattys Pub

Here are some pictures I snapped during my trip:

Irish Quote

“I have gone far out in the world, east and west in my time, and so the peace within these enclosing walls is fitting for the evening of my days”.
