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:

Just some shots from a wonderful hike out in Leenane, Connemara, a few weeks back. Storm Euan was kicking off on the day I was there, hence the storm clouds in some of the shots!
