Inis Oirr is the smallest of the Aran Islands and is characterized by its distinctive charm and Burrenesque landscape. On approach and arrival, marvellous natural vistas and historical sights are immediately gained. We will take you on a magical procession through mixed historical and vast geological time. Though bounded by the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean, Inis Oirr has a surprising array of historical sights – remnants of successive waves of human culture that have swept over this beautiful and wild island.
The Cliffs of Moher are 5 miles long and 700 ft high, at it’s highest point at Knockardin, near O’Brien’s Tower. From here the views are breathtaking – East to the Burren landscape, West to the Aran Islands & Galway Bay, North to the Twelve Pins & Maamturk Mountains in Connemara and South to Loop Head and beyond to the Kerry Mountains.
