Inis Mor Island Guide – The Basics 

Inishmore (Irish: Árainn [ˈaːɾˠən̠ʲ] (listen), Árainn Mhór or Inis Mór [ˈɪnʲɪʃ mˠoːɾ]) is the largest of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay. It has a population of less than 1000 and covers an area of just 32 square kilometres, 

It may not be the biggest island, but it is big for tourism and accessibly by ferry, or flight.

Getting to Inis Mor Island

Theres a 90 minute bus/ferry from Glway which will set you back about 04 Eyro return, or you can charter an 8 pax prop plane for the 8 minute ride. The later is a little bit more fun than the former.

What is there to see and do on Inishmore Island? 

You can listen to people speak Irish, with this being one of the few places where Irish the first spoken language, visit pubs, see the beautiful wildlife and scenery, and of course see Catholic churches.

There’s a museum here and of course TedFest!!!!!!! Don’t know what TedFest is?
