Inis Mór

Inis Mór is an enchanting portal to experience old Ireland. Leave the hustle and bustle of your modern life behind and settle into a slower pace on a truly unique Island getaway.

Nestled snugly in between the Burren in Co. Clare and Connemara in Co. Galway, our rugged island is perfectly located to fully experience the Wild Atlantic Way of life. On Inishmore you can replace the day to day with days to remember.

“Walking through chilly, wind-blown pastures, running a hand along the mortarless walls, you can’t help but feel a connection to the craftsmen who, centuries ago, so carefully fitted each stone. That this feeling, this authenticity, has survived the modern world is nothing short of miraculous.”


Things to see on the Island

The Worm Hole

This rectangular natural tidal pool is a regular on the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series circuit. Access this extraordinary natural phenomenon via a clifftop walk or a signposted walking path.

Dun Aonghasa

There’s one place above all others on Ireland’s west coast, where the visitor can gaze down on the brilliant blue of the Atlantic Ocean, and think: “Next parish, Boston, USA”. That place is Dún Aonghasa.

Dun Eochla

Dún Eochla is a superb stone ring fort located at the highest point on Inishmore in the Aran Islands. The inner walls measure approximately 5 metres in height, and over 3 metres in depth. This fort deserves far more attention than it gets with it’s fantastic location and remarkable condition, but is overlooked because of the popularity of the nearby Dún Aengus/Dún Aonghasa. Rarely do you find four stone forts so close together on one small island, each of which are in great condition.

Kilmurvey Beach

Kilmurvey is a beautiful white sand beach sheltered in a natural cove. On a sunny day the water is crystal clear and invigorating, if you are brave enough to have a dip in the Wild Atlantic!

Irish Craft Village

Kilmurvery craft village is located at the foot of Dun Aonghasa and contains a handful of eclectic Irish arts and crafts shops. Many visitors to the island browse or refresh at the cosy cafe before entering Dun Aonghasa.
