Inishmore Inis Mór

Inishmore is the biggest and westernmost of the three Aran Islands. The island is popular among tourists, who usually explore it on daytrips either by foot, on a rented bike, by minibus or even in horse-drawn carriages. Dún Aonghasa – a prehistoric fort towering on the huge cliffs – is the best known sight of the island and has the status of a world heritage site. Besides that Seacht dTeampaill (seven churches), Teampall Bhean’in (St. Benan's Church), Teaghlach Einne (St. Enda's Household) and numerous Dúns are antiquities definitly worth a visit on this adventurous island.
The southern coast is a unique experience itself, with the bizarre “Worm Hole”, a rectangular shaped pool in the cliffs and the endless patches surrounded by small stone walls.

Directions

To reach Inishmore, take a ferry at either Doolin or Rossaveal in Connemara. There is also a flight departing at Connemara's domestic airport at Inverin.
