Is Inis Mór in the Aran Islands Worth Visiting?

This small island of Inis Mor, also known as Inishmore, doesn’t seem to top the list of most first-time visitors to Ireland. It’s off the beaten path and requires a ferry ride to reach it.

Despite being quite small, it is packed with ancient sites, stone houses, sounds, and experiences that can only enrich your time in Ireland.

This is unfortunate as the islands do offer a lot in terms of history and natural beauty.
