Explore Inis Mór
Inis Mór, as its name suggests is the ‘big island’, the largest of the three Aran Islands. Its main village is Kilronan. This is an ancient land set in an endless sea where great labyrinths of limestone sweep upwards to strikingly steep cliffs, with their unique, weathered monuments of stone. Meandering stone walls pattern small patchwork fields, sometimes running down to clean, unpolluted, quiet beaches. Approximately 12km long and 3km wide Inis Mór is a walker’s holiday paradise, Across the island and over some many miles of craggy, sandy and sometimes stony shoreline there is an abundance of wildlife and over 437 varieties of wildflower.Here is an island of limestone rafts, interlinking trails and breathtaking cliffs, with their panoramic views of Connemara, Clare and sometimes as far south as Kerry, on clear horizon.
For the slightly less energetic, Inis Mór can be discovered on bicycles available for hire on the island or in a more leisurely traditional pony and trap. There are also guided tours available in minibuses from Kilronan Pier
