Activities

Walking:

There are some places that can only be fully appreciated on foot and Inis Mór is one such place. Wizened by time and sculpted by the hands of innumerable generations, they are full of coloured pattern and light and possess a charm that is unsullied and unique.

The Island landscape with its unusual rock formations, fascinating archaeology and renowned flora and fauna, provides a sometimes challenging, and always spectacular terrain to explore. This scenery continues to fascinate visitors and makes its investigation on foot so compelling. Walking about the by-ways of Aran, experiencing its barren rocks, shorn cliffs and rough seas so enchants that it cries out and captivates your soul. It’s an opportunity for a day or a week to breathe in the ‘Wild Atlantic Coastal Air’ and get refreshed and re-invigorated.
