Inishmore is the western-most and largest of the three Aran Islands. The island is a popular destination for day-trippers who set off on foot, with rental bikes, minibuses and horse-drawn carriages to explore. The most famous sight of the island is Dún Aonghasa. The prehistoric fort lies spectacularly on the cliff edge and has the status of a world heritage site. Other sights of the island are the antiquities Na Seacht dTeampaill (Seven Churches), Teampall Bhean’in (St Benan’s Church), Teaghlach Einne (St. Enda’s Household) and several Dúns.
The southern coast is a unique experience itself, with the bizarre “Worm Hole”, a rectangular shaped pool in the cliffs and the endless patchwork of fields surrounded by dry stone walls.
