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. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t!

The Aran Islands are made up of the three islands of Inis Mor, Inis Meain, and Inis Oirr. They are the last lands in the west of Ireland before you reach America.

Some Interesting Facts & History

The best and most practical option is to take one of the Aran Island ferries from mainland Ireland to Inishmore.

If you’re traveling to the island independently, it’s a good idea to make your first stop at the visitor centre after you get off the ferry.

Make sure you’re dressing in layers and have an umbrella on hand, as the weather can get wet and windy quite fast and sometimes without warning.
