Passenger ferry to Aran Island of Inis Mor – day trip return – included Cliffs of Moher boat trip at 5.15pm

Inis Mór (Inishmore) is the largest and most traveled to of the Aran Islands. Its very name suggest its size compared to the other islands, meaning “Big Island”.  The population of Inis Mór is about 900 people.

The Aran Islands are believed to be an extension of the Burren Region in County Clare. The famous rocky landscape has helped to create its iconic image of an island divided by fields separated by winding stone walls. The stunning views from this Island reveal an Atlantic gateway from Connemara to Clare.

Traditional Irish culture is alive and well on Inis Mór and is apparent from their Ancient Festivals to nightly music sessions. The Aran Islands are one of the last places in Ireland that have managed to preserve their language despite the threat of persecution in earlier times.

The main harbour Cill Rónán (Kilronan Village) where the ferry arrives is a bustling port with all of the modern conveniences you may need for your visit. There are several pubs, restaurants, and cafes to enjoy a meal in. Visitors can travel around the island by bicycle, min-bus, and pony & trap tours. There are several beaches that ribbon the coastline of Inis Mór providing a rich environment for seal colonies and wildlife. Visitors can enjoy picnicking, fishing, and even have a swim!
