Stunningly beautiful. Hard to believe that there are 280 habitants on this island. Self contained, with weekly boat deliveries to the residents. Homes fueled with coal from Poland. Fascinating way of life. Rocks were all placed soon by stone to create the path. Careful walking...More

A well traveled Irish woman told me that Inisheer (Inis Oerr) is her favorite Aran Island. So we took the ferry there and had a wonderful day. I recommend taking the horse drawn wagon to get an overview of the island. The wagons will be...More

We chose Inisheer for our Aran Islands experience and spent most of our five hours there walking. We started up the hill to the castle and then headed southwest almost to the lighthouse. We then walked along the coast in the direction of the pier...More
